The Sue Gray report into the alleged Downing Street parties found "serious failures of leadership and judgment" within Number 10.
The report was eagerly anticipated by Brits who were waiting to see the government pay for their partygate antics while the rest of the country was in lockdown and even the Queen was forced to make sacrifices by sitting on her own at the funeral of her husband, Prince Philip.
However, many Brits were less dissatisfied by the short 12-page document that took weeks to produce but seemingly failed to hold the government accountable.
Sue has since said that the report was simply an 'update' and not the full investigative report that she was preparing before the Metropolitan police took
Britons were shocked by the short length of the 12-page that even included blank pages and half pages of text, meaning the report was even shorter than many had first anticipated.
This was reflected in a variety of memes that cropped up on social media. Although Brits were shocked and frustrated with the government, many decided that laughter was the best medicine, and so the report became a meme.

Many Britons also decided to spoof these findings and mock the content included in the report. Comedian Joe Lycett created a fake report that included hilarious issues such as karaoke and games played at the parties
Other social media users also imagined that the Sue Gray report criticized the Tories for not bringing high-quality drink mixers to the alleged parties.

Other savage commenters simply made memes that focused on the lack of investigation into the report.
Some accused Sue of trying to 'cover up' the parties and compared the civil servant to a Dulux paint can, others found inventive ways to suggest that she was in cahoots with the Prime Minister.

There are now calls for the Sue Gray report to be released in full to the public, as well as the full report from the Metropolitan Police once their investigation has concluded.
Britons are eager to see that justice is done, and although there have been jokes surrounding this issue, people in the UK are seriously concerned that justice will not be served and the truth about these alleged parties will not be made public.
