番号 10 キャリー・ジョンソンの物語を落とすためにタイムズに圧力をかけることを認める
Downing Street has confirmed that members of Boris Johnson’s team intervened following the publication of a story about his wife Carrie in The Times, but denied that the prime minister himself contacted the paper to complain.

Downing Street has confirmed that members of ボリス・ジョンソン’s team intervened following the publication of a story about his wife Carrieタイムズ, but denied that the prime minister himself contacted the paper to complain.

The story, which alleged that Mr Johnson had attempted to install Carrie in a £100,00-a-year job in the foreign office at a time when he was conducting a secret affair with her, appeared in the first edition of the newspaper on Saturday, but vanished from later copies and a version also disappeared from the Mail Online website.

Mr Johnson’s official spokesperson confirmed that No 10 was in contact with The Times before and after the publication of the first edition, but denied that the prime minister himself had contacted deputy editor Tony Gallagher, who was in charge of the paper that night.

It is understood that no legal action has been taken by No 10 in relation to the story.

The PM’s spokesperson said that he was unable to issue a formal comment on the allegation, as it related to the period when Mr Johnson was foreign secretary from 2016-18.

But he told reporters: “Others have made clear this story is not true, including Mrs Johnson’s spokesperson.

“I would point you to the denials and statements put out by Mrs Johnson on this and by No 10 colleagues over the weekend.”
