Johnson may have stopped news about Carrie's 100k govt job with super injunction

I'm really not bothered.  Hearing another example of his corrupt behaviour is about as exciting as hearing of another example of water making something wet.

There are 2 people in the world: those who worship him as a god and will never, ever, see fault in anything he says and does, and those who know he and his cabinet are fit for purpose in exactly the same way a paper raft is absolutely ideal for crossing a lake of lava.   In a hurricane.

Carrie was already head of communications for the Tories and this is presumably how she and Boris met.

Should she be able to pursue a carrier within the government establishment or give up on that because of her relationship ? 

And why should someone be automatically denied a potential job because of the way it might look?

The woke would probably have a law against this type of anti wife/girlfriend behavior. :o

I will start the ball rolling with a campaign group called -

Equal Opportunities for Partners of People who have a Political Job. :tu: ;) :D

The government have a law against this sort of behaviour, it is called the Ministerial Code, to provide ethical advice and prevent corruption:The Civil Service code - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

More on the story:

You might have thought it one of the scoops of the year – the allegation that when he was foreign secretary, Boris Johnson wanted to install his then-lover Carrie Symonds as his chief of staff on a salary of at least £100,000 a year, before senior colleagues made it clear that such a “flagrant abuse of ethics” would have been unacceptable.

Yet the story was turned down by one leading newspaper, then picked up and printed by another before disappearing altogether.

Seems as the source of the story, someone who was dispatched from his job running number 10 civil servants, was considered to have personal motives and possibly biased.

Boris would not have been responsible for employing the candidate and suggesting he would apply pressure to the people who were responsible for handing out the job is pure speculation.

The optics had already torpedoed the situation.

Even the press hunting for another Boris story obviously thought this looked hard to push.

In the meantime we have SNP Sturgeon keeping her husband in a post despite coming under investigation for dodgy practices.

"Following his testimony to the Committee on the Scottish Government Handling of Harassment Complaints, Murrell was reported to the Lord Advocate by committee member Murdo Fraser, who alleged he had made a "false statement" under oath while giving evidence. Murrell is facing questions from party members over the alleged disappearance of £600,000 in donations to the party. Police in Scotland are currently investigating an allegation of fraud with regards to the same missing £600,000. The Scotsman reported in June, 2021, that Police Scotland have been asked to investigate Murrell regarding a donation to SNP from lottery winners Colin and Christine Weir, which they subsequently asked to be returned to them"

Murrell married Nicola Sturgeon in July 2010 at Òran Mór Glasgow. They first met in 1988 when Sturgeon, who volunteered at the Banff and Buchan constituency office of Alex Salmond, attended an SNP youth camp organised by Murrell.

But apparently there is no problem with this, ethical or otherwise.

Just as long as she does not change her name to Boris she will be fine.;)

At first glance, the story appeared to be the political scoop of the weekend.

On Saturday, the Times reported claims that Boris Johnson had tried to hire his now wife as his chief of staff when he was foreign secretary.

But almost as soon as the article hit the printers, it was withdrawn, without explanation or clarification.

The piece, written by the veteran lobby journalist Simon Walters, formerly of the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, appeared on page five of some early print copies of Saturday’s Times newspaper but was dropped for later editions.

It does not appear that the article was ever published on the Times’ website.

We have the same problem here, only ours is trying to tear the country down to rule as a tyrant instead of just being happy with good old fashioned Nepotism.

...Downing Street has confirmed that members of Boris Johnson’s team intervened following the publication of a story about his wife Carrie in The Times, but denied that the prime minister himself contacted the paper to complain.

The reason why the Times abruptly pulled the story after one edition of the PM offering his then girl-friend Carrie a job in No 10 is emerging:
