I still think the biggest problem with #Partygate is that hashtag. It didn’t need to be a “party”, it needed to be an indoor gathering for non-work purposes that breached the rules in place at the time.

Yes, it is ridiculous that, say, 5 people, working in a socially distanced office, who had face-to-face contact throughout the day, could not stand together and sing someone happy birthday. But those were the rules and people bent over backwards to follow them.
