GROPE GATE: Boris Facing ‘Anti-Trump Pussy Tactics’ After Grope Allegation

DOWNING Street has denied allegations that Prime Minister Boris Johnson squeezed the thigh of a female journalist under the table during a private lunch over twenty years ago. 

Charlotte Edwardes said the alleged incident took place at the offices of The Spectator magazine in London shortly after Mr Johnson became editor in 1999.

Writing her first column for The Sunday Times, Edwardes said: “I’m seated on Johnson’s right; on his left is a young woman I know.

“More wine is poured; more wine is drunk. Under the table I feel Johnson’s hand on my thigh. He gives it a squeeze.
“His hand is high up my leg and he has enough inner flesh beneath his fingers to make me sit suddenly upright.”

Labour also ‘jumped in’ regarding the allegations with Dawn Butler condemning the Prime Minister.

The allegations – and Labour’s efforts to capitalise on the row – have caused fury in Number 10 at the start of the Conservative Party conference.

Earlier Hancock played down the report saying there were “always lots of other stories in papers”.

Speaking at a Tory party fringe event in Manchester hosted by HuffPostUK, he said: “Boris has never lectured other people about their private lives.

“I think that we should concentrate on delivering on what we are in politics for, which in my view is to serve the citizens of this country.”

But speaking to Channel 4 News, Mr Hancock said he did not “dismiss it at all”.

Mr Hancock said he did not know the details, adding it was incumbent not to “react without the full details”.

He added: “I know Charlotte well, and I entirely trust what she has to say.”

Asked if he believed her claims, Mr Hancock said: “I know her and I know her to be trustworthy.

“What I would say is that these are important issues and getting the response right is incredibly important.

“But there’s also something here about making sure that the way I try to carry on my life – both in public and in private frankly – is with a high degree of integrity.”

He added: “Nobody’s perfect but I think that is how we should try to go about things.”
