Did Boris conspire to beat up a reporter?

A journalist who Boris Johnson secretly wanted to have beaten up has lashed out at the former London mayor’s prime ministerial ambitions.

According to the Guardian,  Johnson was secretly recorded in the early nineties agreeing to provide the address of the News of the World reporter Stuart Collier to his friend Darius Guppy, who wanted to arrange for the journalist to have his ribs cracked as revenge for investigating his activities.

However, Johnson dismissed the call as a joke.

Asked about the politician’s claim the conversation was a joke, he replied: “I didn’t treat it as a joke. That’s why I warned my wife to be careful about who she answered the door to. I took it seriously at the time and it concerned me. I was worried, certainly worried enough to put my wife on a warning.”

Collier’s wife, Jennifer, said. “He should be accountable for the things that he’s done. I think it’s disgraceful behaviour.

“These people seem to think they don’t have to live by the same moral standards as the rest of us. They think because they went to Eton they don’t have to be answerable to things, and I just think his moral compass is way off the scale.”
