Facts 

Plenty of workplaces faced huge pressure during the Pandemic. They weren't getting smashed in the staff room.

Verdict

Boris Johnson has never supplied evidence showing that Downing Street staff faced more gruelling conditions than NHS doctors and nurses, emergency workers, teachers and millions of others who did not breach Covid guidelines.

We approached Boris Johnson's office, No10 Press Office and the Cabinet Office to give them a chance to comment, but received no response.
