Boris Johnson Takes His Tories for Dinner in Bid to Mend Ties

  • London hotel event to try to reset relations after ‘partygate’
  • Comes after ‘away day’ at countryside retreat was postponed

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will host a team-bonding dinner for U.K. Conservative Members of Parliament on Tuesday, as he seeks to rebuild the relationship with his party after months of tensions.

Tory MPs have been invited to a group photo shoot in Parliament before heading to a central London hotel for the main event, according to three people familiar with the matter. It comes after the Conservative Party postponed a planned “away day” at a countryside retreat in January due to the pandemic.
