People are suggesting that the student who was fined £10,000 for having a party in January should get their money back.
The 19-year-old was issued the hefty fine after neighbours reported the large gathering before Nottinghamshire Police attended the address in Lenton, Nottingham.
According to reports at the time, the gathering had 'got out of hand' despite coronavirus lockdown rules being imposed on the country.
Now, people are calling for the student to be refunded after allegations that staff partied at Downing Street in December last year.
A video also emerged which appears to show government employees laughing and joking about the alleged Christmas party which has caused widespread outrage.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson apologised to the public during the Prime Minister's Questions on 7 December where he claimed to be 'furious'.
Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "That student in Nottingham that got fined £10,000 in January for having a party should be getting their f****** money back."
They went on to say: "God, to the people having a go in my mentions, yes I think having the party was wrong. People should follow the rules. But my point (tweeted after 3 glasses of wine) is that if students are facing financial consequences for rule breaking, so should those setting the f****** rules."
Commenting on the post, someone wrote: "Two wrongs do not make a right but you cannot have one law for one and another law for another."
Another added: "Anyone who was fined should be reimbursed! Any restriction related convictions should be overturned."
A third disagreed, but said: "No, they shouldn't get their money back. They broke the rules. But likewise this shower of shit should have their day in court. And then get booted out.
Responding to those saying the student should get their money back, someone said: "Not really if they do then the government can’t be punished. Works both ways."
Now a Christmas 'rave' is being organised on Facebook which is said to be taking place at Downing Street in response to the government's 'party'.
The joke event reads: "No social distancing required. Bring Who you like. Bring your own Nibbles and drink."
It seems like the event is very popular with more than 457,000 people opting for 'attending', with a further 614,000 being 'interested'.
