Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Give us a password clue, Boris! PM Johnson LEAKS cabinet Zoom meeting’s private ID as he tweets screenshot”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Johnson tweeted a screenshot of his Zoom meeting on Tuesday afternoon, in which  ministers and key officials all appeared on a single screen via the video conferencing app to discuss the coronavirus crisis.

However, eagle-eyed observers, like Virgin Media News’ Richard Chambers, noticed that Johnson had been somewhat slack in maintaining tight security protocols by failing to hide the private ID number to access the meeting. It left many on Twitter dumbfounded that the prime minister could commit such a gaffe.

On the plus side for Johnson, it looks as though a password was required to access the exclusive Zoom party, although it didn’t stop some pouncing on the faux pas and a guessing game.

Journalist Stefan Simanowitz joked that “if anyone wants to join the 2pm Cabinet Zoom call tomorrow, the password is ‘HerdImmunity’” — a reference to the UK government's initial Covid-19 strategy that caused much controversy. Others posted gifs comparing the grid-like Zoom set-up of Johnson’s cabinet meeting to The Muppets.
