The Mother of Parliaments is rotten

Images of Notre Dame being apocalyptically consumed by flames must have induced queasiness in the members of the fire safety teams who patrol Westminster’s labyrinthine corridors every hour of every day, ready to stave off incipient catastrophe.

Boris Johnson’s silence

Carrie Symonds and Boris Johnson

The police were called to the flat where Boris Johnson is now living with his current girlfriend of just over a year, Carrie Symonds, after concern from their neighbours about a ‘heated dispute’ on Friday.

In a public hustings for the UK Prime Minister position on Saturday, Johnson had nothing to say. He also had nothing to say about his relationship with right-winger Steve Bannon, although to be fair he wasn’t asked about that.

Claims that his argument with  Carrie Symonds started about his affection for zip wire in the bedroom is unverified.

So the new UK PM will be…

Also his supposed backing for Trump’s possible purchase of Notre Dame in Paris as a hotel is still unverified.

Trump avoids war…

just.

For now.

Donald Trump has stopped short of escalating the worsening stand-off with Iran in the Persian Gulf, suggesting that the shooting down of a US drone could have been carried out by a “loose and stupid” Iranian officer without authorisation from Tehran. He was apparently ‘worried’ that up to 150 Iranians could be killed in the planned retaliation.

Claims that he was heard to say “can’t we get more of them?” in the briefing room are unverified.

In other news, Trump is still in the market to turn Notre Dame into a hotel. His most recent comment appears to be “I really like the roof as a swimming pool.”

Oh and Donald Trump is facing a fresh allegation that he sexually assaulted a woman in his days as a real estate developer in the mid 1990s
