Boris Johnson's affairs.

Having read that Bo Jo's wife has thrown him out again after his numerous affairs I just wondered how any woman could have a sexual relationship with him? Personally I can't imagine anyone less attractive, yet his several lovers have been beautiful & intelligent. DH asked me what financial incentive I would need to close my eyes & think of England....I've decided on £250,000, just enough to pay off our children's mortgages. What do other Grans think?

Yup- I made a similar comment on the other BJ thread.

What a deeply unattractive man he is in every way - physically, morally and personality-wise. It has to be the money - I would want a very great deal more than £250,000 to allow that lump of lard to make free with me! The thought just makes me gag.

I expect my "statespersons" to have some moral integrity - his behaviour in his personal life mirrors that in his political life - personal gain his only motive.

I was disgusted when TM put him in the cabinet.

When I mentioned my dislike of him and his horrible comments on the " Burqa" thread, it appeared I was a voice in the wilderness.

He is about as repulsive as Donald Trump, but it seems if a man has a lot of money, there is no accounting for taste.

Boris Johnson's Latest 'Gaff'......just in case anybody missed it. Re reading it, its pretty awful.

Diana54 Fri 07-Sep-18 20:00:38

For what it's worth I think he is a rat, but some women fall for rats, even seek them out, they deserve each other so no sympathy when they get dumped.

maryeliza54 Fri 07-Sep-18 20:26:21

Well well when - some Corbyn haters had plenty to say about his marital history and he wasn’t a serial adulterer. I do do wonder at this deafening silence.

Jalima1108 Fri 07-Sep-18 20:30:15

not for £250,000!

I prefer his Dad anyway.

Chewbacca Fri 07-Sep-18 20:32:15

Silence? The thread only opened 2 hours ago! Give people a chance maryeliza!

Maybe it's BJ's bumbling demeanour that seems to have women who should know better falling at his feet. Or some women are attracted to men with power? Although having said that, I suspect that BJ won't be in a position of power for much longer so maybe his magnetism will dissipate.

Jalima1108 Fri 07-Sep-18 20:32:53

I think that, for some, power is an aphrodisiac
(not for me, I should add!)

Jalima1108 Fri 07-Sep-18 20:33:24

Perhaps they want to tidy him up.

Jalima1108 Fri 07-Sep-18 20:33:53

X post Chewbacca! (power)

Diana54 Fri 07-Sep-18 21:05:14

More likely because he is funny, makes them laugh, is outrageous. Make a girl laugh and you will never be short of company!

sodapop Fri 07-Sep-18 21:23:35

There is some truth in that Diana54 along with the power thing. Despite his buffoonery he is an intelligent man.
Some have said he is getting the scandal out of the way before his leadership bid.

MissAdventure Fri 07-Sep-18 21:27:59

Well, physically he is the opposite of anything I would find attractive, but, I rather like quirky men, so I suppose that may appeal to some?
Maybe women want to mother him?

oldbatty Fri 07-Sep-18 21:36:05

tell me more about his intelligence.

Anniebach Fri 07-Sep-18 21:54:53

There Is should only one affair known of re Corbyn, Boris has too many to recall.

Charleygirl Fri 07-Sep-18 22:18:31

I am aware that he is intelligent but his buffoonery is stupid.

I am no hairdresser but I would quite like 5 minutes with a comb and a pair of scissors.

I agree, personal gain is his only motive and if I were younger I would consider emigrating if God forbid he ever became PM or even leader of the Conservatives. I could not trust him.

muffinthemoo Fri 07-Sep-18 22:18:47

I have had the opportunity to meet him on a number of occasions through the years, including before he pursued political office and was still a media type.

I have to say, although we are not politically fellow travellers, in person he is extremely charming, educated and erudite. Very substantially more than his “bumbling buffoon” persona would hint at. That is all a handy PR invention on his part, although in recent times it has backfired occasionally. It gives him excellent public cover to advance some of his more daring political moves.

I can totally see how his sideline as a philanderer has been so fruitful over the years.

(No, even in my tender teenage years I was not that charmed, fear not for my virtue)

Most interesting muffin

maddyone Fri 07-Sep-18 23:36:06

Yes muffin, that’s very interesting indeed. I’m afraid I’m with the others in that no amount of money would entice me. However, I have read a bit about him, and though some would have us believe he’s none too bright, apparently from what I’ve read, he is extremely bright. I do find him entertaining and he appears seeminglyto be likeable, but that’s his public persona and none of us really know what he’s like at home (when he’s there and not philandering.) Many ladies appear to find him attractive, but power attracts some people. Also his buffoonery may attract, who knows.
Anyway, I prefer him to Theresa May!

BlueBelle Sat 08-Sep-18 02:33:18

Oh my heavens that last sentence of maddyone fills me with dread Can’t stand either but my word if he’s as intelligent as some say then he is a nasty piece of work encased in a body a bit like a rather chubby blond baby As for women finding him attractive even taking his politics out the story you couldn’t pay me to go near him
I bet some women want to mother him, comb his hair, take him in hand, look after him and others see pound signs before their eyes
However there’s no accounting for taste only the other day I heard a woman say how adorable Trump was I think a pigs backside would be more adorable but there you go he’s another vile vile unattractive man who seems to get any woman he wants and many he doesn’t want

crystaltipps Sat 08-Sep-18 06:20:25

I’m sure he’d be a more entertaining guest at a dinner party than many politicians, sand the fact that he’s a lazy cheat hasn’t stopped him getting to the (almost) top of his profession. Just shows being a proven liar doesn’t seem to be a disadvantage in politics,

Diana54 Sat 08-Sep-18 07:29:01

An affair will probably do him little political damage, everybody loves a lover.
As a politician or a diplomat he is a disaster he has proved that, he is on a personal ego trip. But some misguided people love him in the same way Trump has his supporters, those I saw on the Ed Balls TV episode make me cringe.
Boris will make a good living as a celebrity, not as a politician, please.

TerriBull Sat 08-Sep-18 07:58:49

Unruly and can't be tamed, just like his hair!
