To feel quite sorry for Carrie Symonds (Bojo girlfriend)

When I saw the picture of her yesterday I felt sad for her. She's still quite young and it must be very isolating being stuck with him. Plus all this Jennifer Arcuri stuff coming out. Obviously if I was her I'd ltb but I suppose that's harder to do in the public eye anyway. I wonder if she'll look back on it later and cringe.

Golly. When I see Carrie Symonds I think of his wife and 4 children. I wonder why?

As I understand it, no one is holding a gun to her head and making her stay with him. She could always walk away if she's miserable ...

And as for his wife and 4 DC - that wife married him just 12 days after he divorced his previous wife - a man who marries his mistress creates a vacancy.

why on earth would you feel sorry for her. She has made a choice to be with that horror show!

sue51 Tue 15-Oct-19 10:25:27

She must have known what she was getting into. He's not the faithfull type.

midnightmisssuki Tue 15-Oct-19 10:26:36

What? Why? She chose him??

ohmysoul Tue 15-Oct-19 10:26:47

I don't see how she is stuck with him, nobody is forcing her. She could just leave him. I don't feel sorry for her at all.

Cinammoncake Tue 15-Oct-19 10:35:25

Just me then grin
Yes I feel more sorry for his wife and children obviously. It must be horrendous for them. But she just looks so young and naive.

Yeah, I don't think there's a woman in the UK who doesn't have a vague sense about BJ's multiple mistresses and indeterminate children. If she sees all that and thinks "Yeah, alright" more fool her.

I don't think she's young and naive - she's a well-educated, professional 31 year old! I don't think she's evil or scheming or blame her for how atrociously Boris has treated his children (especially the unacknowledged one(s)) and exes. But I do think she's smart enough to look after herself and probably sees being with Boris as an opportunity.

Are you serious? I most definitely do not feel sorry for the adulteress Carrie Symonds.
I feel far more sorry for the British taxpayer who funds this woman's accommodation in Downing Street in full view of Boris's children.
Young and lost? All the fucking lols hmm

nancy75 Tue 15-Oct-19 10:41:09

It's beyond me how anybody could look at Boris and think yeah alright about him.
The man looks like an overgrown toddler, speaks like a pompous village idiot and has kids all over the show - the appeal is obviously lost on me.

Read about her own parents, it’s interesting. She knows what she is doing, she doesn’t need your sympathy.

paap1975 Tue 15-Oct-19 10:42:10

She isn't stuck with him though, is she? She can leave him if she wants to.

PrestonNotHeston Tue 15-Oct-19 10:43:28

I think she's a pretty tough/smart cookie who knows exactly what she's doing.

DioneTheDiabolist Tue 15-Oct-19 10:43:50

I dont feel sorry for CS and I wont feel sorry for BoJo when he loses his job and she dumps his sorry arse.

PanGalaticGargleBlaster Tue 15-Oct-19 10:46:01

It's almost like she has no agency of her own and has been forced into a relationship with a man who is a serial philanderer, cheat and liar. Poor woman

P1nkHeartLovesCake Tue 15-Oct-19 10:46:23

Well she choose him.

Why feel sorry for her?

Young and naive 🤣🤣 You might be but she certainly isn’t....

Cinammoncake Tue 15-Oct-19 10:53:40

P1inkheart grin grin evidently I am the only person who thinks this so must be!
I shall review my thoughts on the matter

bookwormsforever Tue 15-Oct-19 10:54:52

Young and naive? Don't make me laugh. She knows exactly what she's doing - and why.

mauvaisereputation Tue 15-Oct-19 10:55:59

@theunknownknown - to be fair, it's not actually clear that they got together before Boris separated from Marina Wheeler. I remember reading that MW and Boris were separated for a long time (without announcing it) before the divorce.

DriftingLeaves Tue 15-Oct-19 10:56:48

She knew he was married when she shagged him for the first time. He has no respect for women, I can only imagine his money is very sexy.

Kittenbittenmitten Tue 15-Oct-19 11:01:02

She's not a naïve 21 year old, she's 31. Of course she's still quite young but she's more than old enough and I imagine, clever enough to know what she's up to. I suppose you notice her relative youth more because Boris is so much older.

Windygate Tue 15-Oct-19 11:01:14

Boris has had a series of mistresses including his STBXW. They all know exactly what they are doing.

EssentialHummus Tue 15-Oct-19 11:01:24

The man looks like an overgrown toddler

Rhodri Marsden has described him as looking like a hairy cheesecake, which I think works quite well.
