On the front page of the Guardian, the lead news was - "PM: I broke my own law but I refuse to go" - with Johnson and Sunak shown side by side.
Meanwhile, "Led by liars & lawbreakers" – was the assessment of the Mirror, which says the number of fines issued to government insiders has risen to a "shameful 50".
"No 10 partygate shame: PM and the chancellor broke law" is the Metro's splash headline, and like others it points out Carrie Johnson also receives a fixed-penalty notice.
The Financial Times joins in: "Fines for breach of Covid law pile pressure on Johnson and Sunak".
The i throws it forward a bit: "PM refuses to quit – and faces new party fines."
The Times goes with: "Johnson refuses to quit over lockdown party fine".
Around here is where the pendulum starts to swing. "People have the right to expect better" – the Telegraph hits on a conciliatory line.
"PM: I'm Sorry, I Will Do Better For Britain" – mea culpa in the Express.
"I'm sorry – but I have work to do", says the Sun.
And the Mail gets fully behind the PM and goes all out against his critics saying: "Don't they know there's a war going on?" as it adds that "Boris was there for nine minutes. Carrie's less than five …"
