‘This is a WORK event!’: Glastonbury revellers wave partygate-themed flags ribbing Boris at music festival

  • Glastonbury festivalgoers have taken aim at Boris Johnson over Partygate
  • The revellers used the festivals iconic flags to mock the PM after his fine
  • Several flags made jokes about the Prime Minister’s justification for having parties under Covid restrictions by declaring the raucous festival a ‘work event’ 

Glastonbury festivalgoers have taken aim at Boris Johnson over Partygate using the event’s iconic flags to mock him over his excuses for the scandal.

Several flags made jokes about the Prime Minister’s justification for having parties when the UK was under Covid restrictions by declaring the raucous festival a ‘work event’.

A ‘work event’ is what Boris Johnson used as an excuse to defend rule-breaking in Downing Street during the Covid pandemic. 

One brightly-coloured flag even featured a picture of Mr Johnson next to the tongue-in-cheek flag.

The jokes come the day after Johnson suffered two damaging defeats in the Wakefield and Tiverton and Honiton by-elections.

It is the latest foray into politics for the Worthy Farm faithful – after Jeremy Corbyn made waves at the festival in the months following the 2017 General Election.

Corbyn was greeted with chants of ‘Oh, Jeremy Corbyn’ in what represented a peak for his popularity as Labour leader.

The flagspotting comes as some of the biggest names in showbusiness rocked up at Glastonbury today, despite forecasts of an exceptionally wet weekend.

Game of Thrones actors Kit Harington and his wife Rose Leslie, model Daisy Lowe and Love Island’s Laura Whitmore were among the VIP festival-goers to descend on Worthy Farm this afternoon. 

Yesterday revellers were spotted dancing around in skimpy outfits in the hot sunshine, but conditions had turned quite significantly in Somerset by this morning, with the dress code changing to raincoats and macs as some even put up umbrellas to shield themselves from the rain.

Showers hit the festival this morning, with more downpours on the way this afternoon before easing off into the evening – but there will be a risk of heavy rain tomorrow and further showers on Sunday afternoon.
