Ryanair unleashes yet another jibe at Boris Johnson over Downing Street parties

Ryanair had yet another swipe at Prime Minister Boris Johnson today after his battering in the Commons, where he had to answer for the latest alleged party in a long-running scandal about the Tories not taking Covid lockdowns seriously.

The Prime Minister repeatedly leaned on the ongoing investigation by senior civil servant Sue Gray into the alleged parties, the latest being in the Downing Street garden while the UK was under a strict lockdown.

He made it out alive despite a battering from the opposition but was ruthlessly dismissed online as he was branded an "absolute disgrace" for attending a party.

Twitter users saw that it was "one rule for them, one rule for us" and alleged a "sheer contempt for the British public".

Among those tweeting their reaction to Boris Johnson's comments, in which he admitted he went into the garden for 25 minutes on the 20th May, was budget airline Ryanair.

"Boris Johnson for 25 minutes on 20 May 2020," one of the airline's Twitter admins posted alongside a photo of a popular meme modified to show the PM holding a drink at a party, with the caption "I don't know I'm at a party."

The drinks named 'BoJohito' and 'Virgin Vax of the Beach' were tweeted from the airline's official Twitter account with the caption: "Preview of our upcoming summer inflight drinks #DowningStreetParties."

The drinks were priced at €6 and €7 but the extra beverages titled 'Pinot Sh*tshow', 'Jacob Ress-Mogg's Creek' and 'Corona Extra' didn't have a price.

It's unclear whether the drinks will actually be sold on board flights this summer but it seems like it is just a troll.
