Apparently he wasn't sacked because of the affair, but because he lied about it!!

Funny how lying about an affair is serious enough to warrant being sacked, but repeating an odious slander about dead football fans, knowing that slander to be untrue, is not serious enough to be sacked for.

Says it all about the Tories really.

I love Boris Johnson, I think he's a really intelligent man who talks a lot of sense most of the time, and he didn't deserve to be sacked. And I sort of agreed with some of that spectator article.

I agreed with some of that spectator article too, but not the repeated lie about the Hillsborough victims.

If a woman looked like Boris Johnson,David Mellor or Robin Cook, do you think that she would be having love affairs with handsome men?

I don't think so, which just goes to show that there is still a long way to go before there is true equality of the sexes!

If lying is a sackable offence why isnt that revolting Blair man sacked for lying to the country about WMD - a far far graver offence than an affair.

I never read newspapers (I used to work for a firm of solicitors who dealt with one of the highest profile cases and the newspapers were printing a load of old tosh), and rarely watch the news (all doom and gloom), so I don't know what he has done, or what the Spectator article was, etc. I've only ever seen him on Have I Got News For You, and I thought he was lovely. Then again, I do fancy Archie the Inventor too!

Lying is a prerequisite to being a politician so what's Howard's problem? Dimwit!
