The real reason why the story about Carrie being offered a 100k pa job with Johnson was hastily withdrawn from The Times is now revealed - they were caught in a compromising position on his office sofa ( think Bill Clinton and Monica L , or maybe think BJ). maybe you don’t want to have that mental image or maybe it’s hard to swallow. Carrie must have a strong stomach is all I can say.

Why would that make them pull the story?

Yes I have heard that too. It's like an episode of The Osbournes.

Matt Hancock resigned after a similar incident but of course BJ won't resign over anything.

I wonder if he was cheating on his wife then, or maybe he was cheating on the pole dancer, or the violinist….

I don't think that Hnacock's 'incident' was quite so ...er...'shocking'...

He was cheating on his wife, but probably the others you mention, too...

Yes I think it was on a slightly different scale.

this is why

All the more reason for a resignation.
How many people would get away with being caught having illicit sex at work?

Well that MP had to resign for looking at porn at work - yet Johnson can get away with having a blow job from his then mistress at work.

Aaarrgghh!!

That's my nightmares organised for the foreseeable 😢

AGAA4 Thu 30-Jun-22 11:56:34

Sorry doodedog. It has put me off my lunch.

Grandmabatty Thu 30-Jun-22 12:06:34

Wasn't that 'what done for' Bill Clinton?

Galaxy Thu 30-Jun-22 12:07:21

A Tory Mp walked in on them, allegedly.

Luckygirl3 Thu 30-Jun-22 12:11:03

Definitely too hard to swallow ...............

I can never unsee that in my mind now.

Several important points here

Johnson's wife was undergoing treatment for cancer at the time.

Carrie was with him, without security clearance, in the Foreign Office premises.

Although the 'offence' was the same as Clinton, Clinton's problem was that he denied it had ever happened. Just like Johnson did when questioned about allegations of forcing a previous mistress (Petronelle Wyatt) to have an abortion. Michael Howard fired him for lying, not for what he did.

Oh, and thank heavens for Private Eye who are not cowed by pressure. I expect Mad Nad will try to shut them down.

And once again, we wonder what does this disgusting, lying, cheating, lazy narcissist has to do before his party realise he’s not fit to be PM

I think he could wriggle and lie his way out of almost anything. Like Larry the cat he seems to have nine lives.

I never can understand why any woman would do that.confused

Zoejory Thu 30-Jun-22 13:41:35

Oh dear. I feel a bit faint at the thought

I can't imagine anything more ghastly than getting anywhere near Johnson's nether regions. 🤮
