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.”

Anyone can submit a guest post and as long as it respectful of different beliefs and behaviours it will probably appear.

It doesn’t need to be about Notre Dame itself although some pieces about that would be most welcome. It can be about anything that a magnificent building like Notre Dame (or others) brings to mind.

Articles can be in your own name or with a pen name. I’d like to do a brief introduction about you, but that’s not required.

Updated to include:

I like good humour.

You can do humour too, even ‘fake news’ as long as it’s obvious that that is what it is. Notre Dame can easily be included  in those!

Trump wrong, the moon is not part of Mars

On Tuesday June 11th, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine was forced to clean up the mess Trump made with his angry tweet that both criticized NASA’s goal to send people back to the Moon and said the moon was a part of Mars.

Oh and when the Notre Dame cathedral caught fire earlier in April, French officials corrected Trump’s unsolicited advice about how to fight the fire, noting Trump’s plan would have caused the entire structure to collapse.

Nigel Farage is incensed that a newspaper article has apparently misquoted him.

“I was talking about Coke, the drink not a drug” Farage has since said. He also added that it might be better talking to Michael Gove about this and laughed quite a bit.

He closed by saying that although he’d only met Donald Trump “briefly” when Trump had been in the UK he thought Trump’s plan to turn Notre Dame in Paris into a luxury hotel was “exciting” with the pool on roof “inspired”.

We’ve just learned that in a private meeting on the D-Day anniversary, President Donald Trump met French President Emmanuel Macron  and also British hopeful for the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, at a small Mexican restaurant in Paris.

Bizarrely, Adam Hills was also there, as he had been in London.

It is understood that the purpose of the meeting was for Trump to put a proposal to buy Notre Dame cathedral to turn it into a hotel. Apparently Trump has fallen in love with the roof being restored as a vast swimming pool.

Okay, this won’t happen, but…

Also Trump has said that if the deal didn’t happen he was impressed by how easy it was on invade France and if necessary he was sure he could rely on Boris Johnson to support him.
