Apologies for the fail link.

But awww, diddums, Boris is struggling to afford a nanny and complaining about supporting his other children.

How my heart bleeds!

hmm

Frownette Sat 19-Sep-20 14:10:21

Mine too, shall we clasp our hearts meaningfully and fall down in sympathy?

Mind you though the Fail gets up to all sorts of mischievous reporting

He has about three families? and the first family must be all going through university

WiserOlder Sat 19-Sep-20 14:12:30

Not saying I sympathise! Just that I believe that he might not have quite enough money for a nanny and several children still to go through college!

MildDrPepperAddiction Sat 19-Sep-20 14:14:16

Clap for Boris. That'll help him.

BillywilliamV Sat 19-Sep-20 14:14:58

and this is our business because?

Frownette Sat 19-Sep-20 14:15:32

His, well, ex-wife earns quite a lot, his family are rich, he has enough money.

I can't quite believe he's about to enter a poorhouse.

Frownette Sat 19-Sep-20 14:16:15

I think ex-wife now? Haven't checked that up.

Oh I can imagine that too @WiserOlder, it's just isn't the usual Tory response 'don't have children you can't afford'? 😂

And apparently Boris and Carrie are unhappy at having to pay to host their friends at Chequers... the thing is whether it's true or not, you can easily believe it of Boris!

Poor guy, lets organise a clap for him.

WorraLiberty Sat 19-Sep-20 14:16:57

I can't take any 'news' story seriously when a tabloid says the information has come from 'close friends and colleagues' and 'those in close contact'.

Very likely to be a pile of bollocks and if the story was about something important, I'm sure people would be pointing this out.

We should defo send a food parcel of those 19p own brand stuff to no 10 and help him out hmm

Go Fund Boris !! enough for a hair cut.

Galvantula Sat 19-Sep-20 14:19:10

🎻 I'll play a wee tune on this. 🙄

ChaChaCha2012 Sat 19-Sep-20 14:19:47

It shows how out of touch he is with the majority of the population.

Perhaps he could work from home and look after the kid at the same time? That's what he expected the rest of the population to do.

Or if you want to easily believe it.

I'm not a Boris fan by any means but it never fails to amuse me how much Daily Mail readers seems to believe everything printed in it, no matter what their 'reliable' source is.

Whether it's true or not, and I suspect there are elements that are true that have been ramped up for entertainment value, it doesn't hurt to point out how ridiculous over privileged and out of touch he is from society.

What a feckin shame praps he should sell one of his properties then keep his penis in his pants for a change instead of the ladies of London

pussycatinboots Sat 19-Sep-20 14:26:58

I thought most of his kids the ones we're supposed to know about are adults now? He's only got the baby and the ones we don't know about to pay for.
Maybe Carrie should get a job so he can be a SAHD grin

Lol @pussycatinboots but that would mean him actually having to do some work! Rather than his current job of turning up for PMQ's and a very occasional news briefing 😂

Apparently he hates the job too because Covid and Brexit are so difficult hmm

I do believe this story actually, Boris is exactly the sort of privileged twat who would moan that he can't afford a nanny and housekeeper.

NancyBotwinBloom Sat 19-Sep-20 14:36:59

I thought the PM job would pay more than £150k.

Yep.

'Sources close to' = we made it up but nobody can prove it.
