Boris skips out on major COBRA meeting to hold farewell party at Chequers estate


Formal invites were sent earlier this week for the event at the Prime Minister’s official country residence in Buckinghamshire.

A Tory source told Sky News: “The invitation comes from Mr and Mrs Johnson.

“It is their farewell bash at Chequers this weekend.

“Partners and children are all invited.”

Downing Street did not deny that Mr Johnson was hosting a party at Chequers this weekend.

A No 10 spokesman said: “As is usual practice, any political events would be for my political colleagues, it wouldn’t be a question for me, but I confirmed that the PM will be in Chequers over the weekend.”

It comes as ministers will hold an emergency Cobra meeting today after meteorologists warned of record high temperatures in England that could put lives at risk.

Cabinet Office minister Kit Malthouse is to chair the meeting of the Government’s Cobra civil contingencies committee to discuss the escalating heatwave.
