James O'Brien: 'It's not a flipping work meeting, it's a flipping party'

This is the moment James O'Brien dismissed the idea that the leaked photograph of Boris Johnson at a gathering in the Downing Street garden was of him at a work meeting.
The Guardian, which published the picture, reported it was taken on 15 May - when only two people from different households were allowed to meet outside, at a distance of at least two metres.
Justice Secretary Dominic Raab earlier today told LBC he thinks the image shows "people after a series of work meetings having something to drink, which was consistent with the rules at the time".
Referring to what is shown by the photo, James said: "It's not a flipping work meeting, it's a flipping party.
"This is just counting. Just look at them.
"There's 19 people there and not a computer or a notebook between them [and] not pen in sight."
