    He’ll end up resigning

    This is the one thing that will definitely not happen.

    Well – certainly not in the sense of a resignation that is anything short of that type of ‘resignation’ that occurs approximately an hour before he would be sacked anyway.

    It isn’t about politics for him, it is about him and his monstrous ego.

    Mariana Hyde’s piece is excellent. I am sad that not more papers are allowing people to write similar articles.

    Ooh I don’t think it’ll be that long, Carries tell all book will probably be a jaw dropper 🙂

    Will it will leave you open mouthed and gasping for more?

    Soiled and full of remorse is more likely.

    Just to clarify, I wasn’t suggesting bozo will resign. I was referring to Mr boozy gropey. Not that I know anything about him. It just has the feel of a story that will grow until the pressure from all sides is too much. I’m probably wrong, but just a guess.

    Oh he’s already resigned.
    Now Boris considers the matter closed and won’t answer any questions about why he put a known sex pest into the office of the Chief Whip – the person you go to when you have concerns about – oh I dunno – sex pest behaviour from your fellow MPs.

    In much the same way as the police officer who murdered Sarah Everard was known “colloquially” and “as bantz” in the Met as “The Rapist”, Chris Pincher’s nickname was Arse – as in Arse Pincher. Well known, but presumably all just a bit of a laugh.

    Given that the Tory Hierarchy know that they would likely lose even the safest seat in the country in a resulting by-election right now, Tory MPs know that they could appear on Live TV feeding newborn babies into woodchipping machine while being noshed off by a schoolboy and they still wouldn’t face any disciplinary sanction from number 10

    Not as MP. And he still has the Tory whip. He’ll be hoping to be back on the inside in the top team (again) as soon as people have “moved on”… and he’s still one of our voting representatives in parliament in the meantime. He’s given up very little short term, and nothing long term. For now…

    Indeed.
    This is the second time he has resigned from the whips office after allegations of sexual misconduct.
    Last time round when he rejoined after a couple of months he got a promotion to deputy chief whip from just a assistant whip.

    I agree with the Porn Man. The Blow-Job Man should remove the whip from the Groping Man.

    👏🏼

    Not sure about the snappy term “Blow-Job Man” though… I’m not concerned about his consensual in private down time pleasures… what I am concerned about is the pattern, going back to his days as London Mayor, though his days at the FO, and still happening while he is PM… of trying to divert public money towards the women that, er, please him. He’s not fit for public office, of any kind, because of that.

    So null responses must be taken as meaning peeps do use their workplaces that way?

    I don’t have a workplace so the question does not apply.

    Given the quality of current conservative MPs, they probably watched and knocked one out.

    Its not pride preventing him from resigning its cowardice. It would actually take a bit of courage to resign. The more he limps on from one moral failure to the next blunder the more courage it requires to own up and stand down.

    It was a rhetorical question, surely? Don’t we all expect higher standards in the workplace than Johnson and those around him do? But, for me, it’s that fact he’s repeatedly tried to direct public funds to multiple secret sex partners that means he should be fired, on the spot. He is simply unfit for public office, of any kind.

    I have no personal problem with consenting adults doing what consenting adults do in a work place (not that I’ve ever had the chance)

    But it’s the abuse of public funds and corruption that comes with it that is the problem.

    But it’s the abuse of public funds and corruption that comes with it that is the problem.

    And the abuse of the position,taking advantage of the juniors/interns.

    I’m pretty sure that even the most liberal work places would draw the line at noshing in the office, usually a disciplinary going by the companies I’ve worked for where similar has happened.

    Yep, it’s blowing public money to get a trickle down. This government has rather lowered the tone.

    There must be a special laboratory where they breed these Tory politicians to have this sheer amount of sexual deviants in one place as elected members of parliament, or is just good old fashioned private schooling and getting beasted by the form master that turns them out this way?

    I wouldnt be sure.
    Given he seems to be a major supporter of Johnson that pretty much rules out having any principles or dignity so it comes down to triggering a recall which would need him suspending or found criminally guilty (if more than a year then skip the recall).

    Depends how much scrutiny he’s willing to tolerate. Considering the nature of the allegations I predict a resignation next week. Three reported incidents so far, how many more will emerge?

    ‘Only one Conservative appeared to rally to Pincher’s defence on Friday. Peter Bottomley,…’ (Guardian)

    Premier Icon MoreCashThanDash

    A Pincher-Bottomley coalition?

    His “issues” are so well known it’s ridiculous it’s been allowed to drag on all these years. Interesting on the news last night very typical “young male Tory” staffers were being interviewed complaining about the working environment and the need to feel safe. How the hell must female staff feel?

    Long Twitter thread here sums it up quite well.

    That was a fantastic thread crazy-legs.

    Got me thinking… I went to a middling state school in Oxfordshire. Most years one student would get into Oxford or Cambridge.

    Imagine if that happened every year, and that some years two students made it through. Now replicate that across all the middling state schools across the nation and you can see why the ruling class have a vested interest in keeping state education in a poor state. The privileged would have to compete for the limited number of Oxbridge places that had previously been reserved for them and them alone and they might not make the grade…

    That was a fantastic thread crazy-legs

    Indeed. I used to work with a guy who could have written that. He boarded at a private school, hated every minute of it, hated the people, and told a pretty similar story of emotionally starved savagery and the deviants it produced

    Someone mentioned Peter Bottomley excusing Pinchers behaviour. The interview he did on Radio 4 was truly staggering

    It was a role-call of ‘the rules don’t apply to us’ exceptionalism of the style that Boris demonstrates every day of his gilded, elitist Uber-privileged life. These people genuinely feel that the standards that apply to acceptable behaviour just don’t apply to them and they should not be constrained in any way from just doing whatever the **** they feel like
