BORIS Johnson cancelled a boozy Christmas bash with 120 donors over the party scandal.
The Prime Minister was due to attend with Cabinet ministers such as Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
He pulled the plug just hours before last night’s event at Christie’s auction house in central London.
Tory party bosses had planned to push ahead despite anger over a video showing sniggering aides laughing about last year’s lockdown-breaking bash.
They were keen to use the event to drum up much-needed cash but had to ring donors to postpone it due to what they called “recent events”.
