Kay’s Bog Standard Apology Leaves More Questions Than Answers
Last night Kay Burley apologised for having “popped in” to another restaurant after the 11pm curfew while “waiting for a taxi” on her way home from the Century Club, “to spend a penny”. Guido suspects spending a penny is the new ‘testing my eyesight’…
“I want to apologise to you all for an error of judgment. On Saturday night I was enjoying my 60th birthday at a Covid compliant restaurant. I am embarrassed to say that later in the evening I inadvertently broke the rules. I had been waiting for a taxi at 11pm to get home.

Kay does not mention the other people who came back to her home. Yet she didn’t deny it.
Whilst Kay’s statement tries to take all the blame, Guido has yet to hear what her Sky News colleagues and party guests Beth Rigby, Inzamam Rashid, and Sam Washington have to say. Taking the p*ss… in every sense…
