The Jeremy Vine panellist labelled the Conservative Party leader as a “Trump on a budget” in a fiery rant after the Prime Minister’s spokeswoman was filmed appearing to confirm reports of a Number 10 Christmas party while mocking Covid rules.
Ms Cundy told Jeremy Vine: “He can’t recover and I am absolutely appalled by him.”
She added: “I do feel the parties…and people say well that’s in the past now it’s happened.
“Look, I for one just my example, my family were different tiers, I couldn’t see my 84-year-old mother.
“I couldn’t see my boys, I was actually on my own at Christmas, and for my mom…for mental health issues, people have had it way worse than ever me.

Ms Cundy continued: “He has lost all moral authority, and I have to say, look, I think Boris was all about getting us through Brexit, which he did like Churchill was about winning the war, it is time to go.
“He is a hopeless, Prime Minister.
“I’ve got news for you, great entertainer, he’s like Trump on a budget.”
