Why Petronella’s mum, Lady Verushka Wyatt, revealed her daughter had an abortion and changed her tune from denying the affair to confirming it and sinking Boris is a mystery. Upper class hacks should know better than to let the tabloids turn them over. Mother obviously found it difficult to keep mum. It is possible that Boris’ Aitkenesque denial provoked her to confirm it was more than a “pyramid of piffle”.
I don’t think having an affair is a sacking issue – we don’t want the country led by boring prudes. Why Boris didn’t tell Howard “yes, I’m shagging the mad skinny, Hungarian hack, please don’t make me minister for the family” I don’t know. Something tells me Howard just doesn’t find Boris as amusing as the rest of us. Although he certainly took the piss out of him last week.
When the News of the Screws doorstepped him Boris told them through the letter box “I am now going to have a stiff drink.”
