I think she sat alone, to show an example, due to covid. Very wise... I still can't give a monkeys about who partied and when. They gave the advice that was... potentially, safest, which was right. Risked themselves, up to them. What bothers me is those fined or literally prevented from seeing dying people. But I see that as a different issue... that was down to...

Ael it depends how you interpret 'forced' . You could say that the Covid rules at the time forced her to sit alone.
LJ, you really can't expect the Prime Minister's office to be run from people's back bedrooms. I think they are considered 'key workers' and for good reason.
It seems Matt Hancock was running his from the bedroom:0) ^^^
it's my personal opinion that the queen sat alone at the funeral for her own reasons and it's being disgracefully manipulated for political purposes
ael, surely she sat alone to comply with the Covid restrictions.

What bothers me is those fined or literally prevented from seeing dying people. But I see that as a different issue... that was down to lockdowns, which a lot of people did agree with. Any parties didn't affect that.
The biggest problem maybe, was too strict lockdowns, with no personal choice, but that probably wouldn't have been popular either.
The Greatest Living Haystack is only sorry he was caught, like the fragrant Allegra.
Complete disregard for HM and the general public. Just watching the news now and people who were fined are fuming. Chap being interviewed was fined for having drinks with 3 other people in his garden and paid up.
I think all fines should be paid back. And also, any future lockdowns should be advisory.
Their job should be to give everyone the most accurate information they can, good or bad... same for vaccines. And let adults work out what they need to do.
I didn't party that Christmas, because that's what I decided was best for me and those around me. I decided for myself. I just needed the information. Anyone who would have changed their minds, purely due to Boris's behaviour (much as I like him) must have a screw loose :-)
I'm with Pixie on this totally.

Well said. And yes Boris was pretty stupid. But I haven't turned against him or the party. And I'm still sick of the media - all this interviewing of people who are upset is getting me down. I'm fed up with sob stories! Lets move forward.

A week full of Boris partying and Prince Andrew! Is there no other news.
Thank you... and bobbi x if the BA wasn't on purpose, as you were :-)
I’d say she sat where she was advised to. Where she sat was I’m sure the last thing for her to worry about.
It’s not as if any of her family would have given her a comforting hug is it ?

Surprised, but appreciated:-) x

Not really , I try to see both sides of a debate as best I can Pixie
I know.... was thinking of general AB! Sorry x
//They gave the advice that was... potentially, safest,...//

They didn't "give advice" Pixie. They introduced legislation which provided for hefty financial penalties, pursued through the criminal courts if not paid (with imprisonment as the ultimate sanction for non-payment). That's not advice, it's enforcement against everyday activities that had become - outrageously - criminalised.

This is the whole point. These laws were introduced in order to counter the pandemic. In order to be successful they had to apply to everybody. But Ministers and their staff were of the opinion that they didn't apply to them because (so the nonsense goes) they were "work-related".

It's actually opened up a far wider debate. These revelations show that at least five boozy parties are said to have take place in No 10 or various other government buildings in the past eighteen months. Why are such events held in government offices? Most organisations banned the consumption of alcohol on their premises thirty years or more ago. If "leaving parties" and the like are to be held Ministers and civil servants should do what everybody else does and head off to a bar.
That was my pont, nj.
The fact that Boris attended neither is a moot point

What it does show is the mindset of the Tory staff at Downing St and their utter contempt for the public and monarch alike

Boris sets the tone so that is where the buck stops
