A GB News broadcaster stirred controversy on social media after comparing NHS staff eating pizza to parties held in government premises during lockdown.
Sophie Corcoran posted a picture of Whittington Health staff enjoying a Domino’s with the caption: “How is this any different to cake at the office?”
Boris Johnson has used the excuse that he didn’t realise a gathering in the Cabinet Room “just before a vital meeting on Covid strategy” could amount to a breach of the rules.
But as Peter Stefanovic pointed out, if that was the case, why would the prime minister’s wife and decorator be taking part?
Corcoran’s supposed allegation that NHS workers were also in breach of the rules seems to be embarrassingly thin, especially given that the picture was taken on 18th March, before any coronavirus lockdown rules were introduced.
Needless to say, the picture didn’t go down well on social media.
