Boris Johnson Wins Cheers From Tories Amid Private-Life Turmoil

Boris Johnson Wins Cheers From Tories Amid Private-Life Turmoil

Although still heavily backed to beat Mr Jeremy Hunt to become Conservative Party leader, and therefore prime minister, a snap poll published in the Mail On Sunday suggested the incident had cut his support.

Boris Johnson has refused to comment on the incident early Friday, when police were called after a neighbor reported hearing shouting, screaming and banging from the home the Conservative Party politician shares with his partner, Carrie Symonds.

"You are running for the office of not just Conservative Party leader, but prime minister, so a lot of people who admire your politics do call into question your character, and it is incumbent on you to answer that question".

'If you don't get the withdrawal agreement through Parliament, there is no implementation period during which we can do anything at all, ' Mr Fox told the BBC.

United Kingdom prime minister hopeful Boris Johnson is "yearning" for his ex-wife Marina Wheeler despite dating Carrie Symonds, a former Conservative aide and media mogul heiress, The Mirror reported, citing "pals". When Johnson dodged and then said he wouldn't discuss the matter, some Tory activists in the audience booed the host.

Mr Farage has weighed into the issue of police being called to the home of Boris Johnson's girlfriend on Friday morning.

Prone to gaffes in the past with his comments on Muslim women and on business in the context of Brexit, Johnson's campaign managers have so far kept him away from most media appearances and television debates during the leadership election.

"I think what they want to hear is what my plans are for the country and for my party".

Johnson, who has a leading Brexit campaigner in the 2016 referendum, on Saturday reiterated his desire to leave the European Union in October with or without a deal.

Front-runner Johnson and his opponent Jeremy Hunt made their opening appeals to grass-roots Tories on Saturday at a hustings, or political roadshow, that focused attention on Johnson's character.

Despite a series of scandals in the past and criticism about his attention to detail, Brexit supporter Johnson has dominated the race to replace Prime Minister Theresa May. Among those who identified as Conservative supporters, Johnson's lead had decreased since Thursday.

"But we will reissue our invitation for Mr Hunt and Mr Johnson to debate live on Sky News next Monday, July 1".

"Police attended and spoke to all occupants of the address, who were all safe and well".

Johnson, 55, is now divorcing his second wife.

Runaway favourite to be the next British prime minister Boris Johnson faces an awkward day of campaigning today.

A neighbour of Johnson told the Guardian newspaper that they had recorded the altercation from inside their flat out of concern for Symonds.

"Once clear that no one was harmed, I contacted the Guardian, as I felt it was of important public interest", he said.

Neighbour Tom Penn, 29, said in a statement he had called the police because he was "frightened and concerned for the welfare of those involved".
