Is Carrie carrying?

    I've been looking at photos in the press of the elusive Carrie Symonds and she seems to either be draped in a voluminous sari or is wearing a coat with just one button fastened. I think that she may be hiding something!

    I find it a sad commentary on the country’s moral compass that it is acceptable to have a mistress in No 10. It would be different if both were single. Anyway, what attracts an ambitious young woman to a pm old enough to be her father?

    Suspect the clue is in ' ambitious ' ?

    What attracts a woman to marry a Socialist leader old enough to be her father?

    @LondonCanary, someone who had a successful career before her marriage, wasn’t sacked for an alleged misconduct, and who did not conduct an adulterous relationship with her now husband before marriage, and who shuns the political limelight. Age difference between Johnson and paramour is 24 years; between the Corbyn it is 20. While I despise both men equally, Corbyn seems to have some moral standards whether one agrees with him or nor whereas Johnson comes across as an opportunistic buffoon.

    Between President Macron and his wife it is 25 years. So what? Surely only the prurient are engaged by such things these days?

    Personally repulsive as I find Boris Johnson, men with money, status and power have never failed to attract a certain type of woman into their beds.
    The mystery to me is how so many of his here-today-gone-tomorrow women ended up pregnant. Never has it been easier or cheaper to practise effective birth control. You dont have to depend upin a man responsibly using condoms or withdrawing.

    I'm sure you can see what I'm implying. Up the duff has been a historical tactic to try and secure a man with a poor track record of commitment, or to secure finance for a baby you always intended to keep.

    Your last comment hardly accounts for the woman/women who have fallen pregnant by him and have been pressured, allegedly, to abort ... and to not run up too high a bill doing so.

    How many are you alleging this applies to??

    Yes, they'd make up the rest of the cohort. I daresay he would have preferred most of them to abort.

    Yes, belle. It matters to me at least because he is a man I would not trust to look after my cactus, much less be a responsible father to a child I would bear. I'm staggered that so many casual sex partners thought he might be.

    Yes. I was only aware of one. @jubilee alleges more..

    It doesn't seem to have worked yet on Johnson and quite a few women seem to have tried it.

    Personally I'm more interested in what he does for the country, not what he does in the bedroom.

    I think the latter might have some bearing on his fitness for the other.
    But you do have a bit of a crush..? ;)

    I'm still of the opinion that he's unfit for public office and his attitude to relationships has some bearing as @Aquamarina1234 says.

    Boris is not my favourite person by a country mile but to be fair he is in the middle of getting a divorce and his almost ex-wife is seeing someone else now too. How is she his ‘mistress’ under those circumstances. They are both consenting adults so their age difference is completely irrelevant. Why should they feel any need to hide their relationship? You say it would be ok if they were both single but in earlier times people would probably have felt this to be morally reprehensible too.


    If we had only ever allowed powerful positions to go to men or women who had been 100% sexually faithful to one person for their whole lives we would have historically lost some great leaders. We definitely wouldn’t have a royal family!
