Would explain a few things if that is actually what they think 'work' is.

Ah yes, I often drink whilst working. I also make sure when having meetings to have everyone in little groups, and make sure that nobody is taking any notes.

Also the most important thing is to bring your partner and child to your important meetings, maybe even extended family too.

in normal times, i have lots of work things at the end of a day which would take place over drinks. very much still work and taking about work though. if we had a big event then the de-brief might well be over drinks.

different sectors to have different work cultures though. in normal times, i would imagine that in politics an awful lot of 'work' is done through discussion outside formal meetings and often over drinks. again, in normal times, i really can't see that pattern as at all unusual.

Judging by some of the things reported to have happened in Palace of Westminster bars over the years, probably so. But should that be the case? Also, this wasn't in normal times.

They're making fools of all of us. Although the biggest fools they're making are the ones who still support them, despite having stuck to the rules like the rest of us. Forelock tugging in the extreme.

in some sectors, and at a senior level, and particularly if you live above the office, it wouldn't be at all unusual. what people are doing is discussing work in an informal setting - it's how lots of work stuff gets progressed in some work settings.

I've never, ever encountered someone bringing their kid and wife along to a work meeting.

Just because they live above the office, doesn't make it any better.

What's funny is that I don't even think what they are doing is that bad. They're all outside and mostly work together so it's not a huge risk. What annoys me is the lying about it when it's fairly obvious that they're basically having after work drinks.

(Essentially it's to show of his country pile)

His wife and two annoying little kids are always there, getting in the way and generally being divs.

I'd suggest it's far more common in some industries and at a certain level of seniority than most people on here would realise.

well, in normal times, i certainly have. children, dogs, cats, elderly parents. people still discuss work. it's often when important stuff gets sorted. people say what they really think with out a minute taker. i can only imagine that politics is like that cubed.

Yeah, you're right that in normal times it's normal behaviour in politics to carry on with social activities outside of the working day at which work may be discussed. Sometimes partners would even be included. I've been to a fair few socials like that myself. But as Raab confirmed, it's not part of the official working day. It's very much after work social activity, where there's no requirement for employees to attend.

It's bleedingly obvious why people who've stuck to the rules are annoyed by this and their attempts to blatantly lie about it. It's sickening to hear the stories of the sacrifices people made while this bunch were taking us for fools. It's also a pattern of repeated behaviour, which should remove any doubt form people's minds. And if anyone needs any more evidence, senior No. 10 staff were even laughing about the excuses they'd come up with if they ever got found out. It's indefensible.

What this miserable crew always seem to miss is the question, โ€œhow will this look to the public?โ€ In politics that is so important. They arenโ€™t even competent at that!

Putting Raab in front of the cameras to explain it away is almost laughable. The trouble is they have no one credible

do you have a link to raab saying it was "very much after work social activity"?

if that's their explanation then there's no possible defence of it.
