Boris Johnson could finally face his ‘Waterloo’ moment this week as he finds himself poised by MPs for the infamous ABBA party.

On Wednesday, the former prime minister gives four hours of evidence to the Privileges Committee, which is investigating whether he lied to the House of Commons about Partygate.

And members are expected to ask him for details of a party that failed to investigate Sue Gray’s probe – the so-called “ABBA Party” on November 13, 2020.

Mr Johnson, his wife Carrie and a group of special advisers were in the Downing Street flat when indoor social gatherings were banned.

It was alleged that the Swedish pop legends’ hit The Winner Takes it All was blown off after Dominic Cummings was forced out of number 10.

Ms Johnson has previously denied the claims and Mr Johnson claimed it was a work meeting.

And in her report, Ms Gray said it was not “appropriate or proportionate” to investigate further after police did not fine anyone for the event.
