Over one million people have responded to a parody event posted on Facebook earlier last week.
The event, which mocks the Government's alleged Christmas 2020 "gathering," followed by several other supposedly rule-breaking events, was posted on Facebook earlier this week under the name "Christmas rave - 10 Downing Street."
Since its creation, the spoof party has garnered over 1.2 million responses in total with more than 500,000 of those responding as "going" on the Facebook event. “MASSIVE RAVE AT DOWNING STREET”, reads the event’s description.

"No social distancing required. Bring who you like. Bring your own nibbles and drink,” the party demands, poking fun at the cheese and wine selection that was said to have been served at the event on December 18 last year.
Amongst the line-up, Boris Johnson is slated to headline alongside his ‘chums’, as per the event’s description.
The fictitious event is set to go ahead on December 24 at 6:PM, although the description disclaims: “Please note this event is not real and all just for humour and poking fun at the powers that be.”

The spoof event was set up by DJ Jon Mancini who posted on Facebook after the party reached one million responses: “A million f*kin ravers. Nuts”
“My Mum wants to come, do 82-year-olds get VIP treatment?” responded one user, while another joked: “Clap for the Ravers - Thursdays 8:PM”.
Last week, an official investigation into multiple Downing Street parties was opened up. Following a public uproar in reaction to a non-socially distanced party which allegedly broke current COVID rules at that time, more parties were discovered and are now under investigation.
