The UK prime minister has finally commented on the nature of his relationship with an American businesswomen and former model when was mayor of London. Suspicions were raised over the significant amount of cash Johnson allegedly gave her and the trade trips he took her on, despite her lacking the necessary credentials.

After days of media speculation and dodging questions about Jennifer Arcuri, the Sunday Times reported that according to her close friends, she was having an affair with Johnson at the time. Johnson has upset quite a few women in Parliament recently as well, after demonstration what some would call a disturbing lack of empathy towards colleagues receiving death threats from far-right extremists, who often using his language to intimidate Labour MPs.

The Prime minister later clarified that his use of the word “Humbug” was not in reference to the death threats his colleagues were receiving, but to the suggestion that he shouldn’t use words like surrender when talking about Brexit. At the Conservative party conference in Manchester this past weekend Johnson was dogged by questions regarding fresh allegations. Two female journalists have accused him of groping them while he was editor of the Spectator magazine in 1999. Johnson denied the allegations and insisted the public would rather hear about what he is doing to level up and unite the country, but would they?

The conservatives tried to drag the public’s attention away from Boris’s conduct by devoting a day to public services and the economy but the Prime Minister’s extra-curricular activities might make for much more eye-catching headlines.
