Get off me Boris!(30 Posts)
It'll be interesting to see how Boris explains this one away!
Police called to loud altercation at Boris Johnson's home..
The Tories are not looking very women friendly are they?
Then again Trump got elected after numerous harassments etc. so the bar is pretty low for fluffy haired middle aged liars.
It's getting fairly depressing to see these kind of men rise to the top, isn't it?
How is it that I've heard nothing about this on the news today?? Are we that used to this sort of behaviour from men in power it's not even worth mentioning?
Looks like the Guardian broke the story this evening, will be interesting to see if other outlets pick it up on the 10pm news
What, the loveable cuddly buffoon Boris? Surely not?
I hate him
BBC have had it on the news at 10.
Not that it will make one iota of difference to the leadership contest, especially given the general defence of Mark Field’s behaviour by a load of Tories
She's probably discovered that Boris has been sleeping with a new lover, 10 years younger than her. That seems to be how it goes with him.
Have we ever had an unmarried girlfriend living in number ten before?
"The Metropolitan Police told the BBC it "spoke to all occupants of the address, who were all safe and well". In a statement, it said "there was no cause for police action"."
So, go get a life instead of wasting police time who have much, much more important things to do in London e.g. bringing down knife crimes, etc.
Perhaps the people next door thought they would do the upper class British equivalent of SWATTING.
What an idiot, Iain Dale, kept asking Bojo what happened at his house that prompted a police visit. The PM contender had already explained more than once he was more eager to tell the nation how he was going to carry out his promise to deliver Brexit to cheers and applause from the audience but an idiot like you don't seem to get it. In any case, what happened behind closed doors between a private couple is none of your - or anybody's, for that matter - business! The pervert nosey neighbour who made a secret recording is just that, a pervert! Heaven knows what else has he secretly recorded on his phone? Perhaps the police ought to have a look?
Ride on, Bojo!
I'd say that if the potential next PM is violent or abusing his partner behind closed doors that is very much in the public's interest to know it. It says a lot about what type of PM he would be, what/who he cares about, and who may get screwed over by his leadership. The attitude that things like this don't matter is what led to Trump being elected and flushing America down the toilet with the treatment and rights of women & minorities.
The recording of the argument doesn't make him a pervert.
It does provide evidence against accusations of lying, smear campaign, unsubstantiated rumour etc.
The pervert nosey neighbour who made a secret recording is just that, a pervert!
Some people will justify anything. A phone is not a dedicated nor a particularly sensitive recording device. It must have been very loud to be easily audible from inside another flat. If it's these kind of people as well, I expect the build will be of decent quality. Are you not concerned if men in power are openly violent in their relationships?
I admit I was feeling sorry for the woman in question, being dragged through the news, but it turns out she's part of the political machinery.
The Tories are not looking very women friendly are they?
They've only had two women as Prime Minister which is more you can say for the shitty opposition we have in Labour. And they're damn well better at protecting women's rights than the faux feminist woke guardianista rich Hampstead luvvies who are too afraid to speak up for actual women.
Boris isn't representative of all Tories either.
The people who made the recording didn't need to phone the guardian after they phoned the police. But don't let all the facts get in your way of how those evil Tories treat women
Facts? Like how the police was called to a house of a pm hopeful because of a woman screaming, sounds of things being broken? Or how another one manhandles a female protester by the neck on tape.
Both of these were captured on tape so I've no problem with facts.
By the way I also think Labour and most mainstream parties are crap in relation to women. The lack of representation is shocking.
But I don't like when this kind of behaviour is being normalised and dismissed.
Amara - the facts are police were called to a (by the time they arrived) quiet house by a neighbour known to have opposing views.
A protestor (female is irrelevant) moving towards a major British politician was intercepted by a bystander and ejected. She had no right to be there, no one could tell if she was dangerous. Half a pound of semtex under her dress and its mass death.
I don't like it when protestors feel they can invade a private space and cause disruption with no repercussions .
I'd be quietly impressed if you could somehow hide half a pound of semtex under a close-fitting strapless satin frock, cdtaylornats. I imagine it would take quite an effort to retrieve from wherever you'd stashed it.
They heard noise, it was lots enough to be recorded on a mobile, they knocked on the door three times, got no response and yet it's their fault for the whole affair?
Half of the population are remainers, not a niche political belief.
For me it's just yet another episode of poor judgement (at the minimum) in a long series from this mendacious buffoon. This is one of the most important weeks in his political career and he can't even hold it together despite a team managing him. God only knows what he'd be like as leader, the potential for a continuous stream of disasters is pretty high.
"Perhaps they just like loud role-playing."
Well, indeed the title of this thread did say, "Get off me Boris!" And I suppose you're not the only one thinking ole' Bojo's having a little bit of BDSM fun behind closed doors in the privacy of their own flat. But pervert neighbour was thinking likewise and was more adventurous and doubly quick in getting out his handphone - all previously pre-set to record, no doubt - only to be massively disappointed to learn what Bojo did was no more than the "mortal sin" of having spilled some red wine in that god-damn sofa!
So pervert called the police instead - strange that no other neighbours who live closer to Bojo bothered to do anything - and when the police declared there was "no cause for police action" after a thorough investigation, pervert went straight to The Guardian. Even more mysterious is how did pervert manage to get hold of The Guardian in the middle of the night? All very unsavoury!
Well, the title of this thread says, "Get off me Boris!"
Doesn't everyone get straight on the phone to the Guardian newspaper after hearing (and recording) potential domestic violence/arguing coming from next door?
