Back OT,

"Attempt to secure Carrie Johnson role at Prince William’s Earthshot charity ‘rejected’

Simon Case suggested the charity job but was told it would be inappropriate for the PM’s then-fiancée to ‘work closely with the royals’

An attempt to secure Carrie Johnson a role with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s charity was rejected amid concerns it would be inappropriate for the Prime Minister’s fiancée to work with the royals, The Telegraph can reveal.

Simon Case, the Cabinet Secretary, approached the Royal Foundation that manages Prince William’s charity work after the birth of the couple’s first child, Wilfred, in April 2020.

The Telegraph understands that Boris Johnson asked his officials to look for a charitable job for his then-fiancée after his original suggestion of giving her a plum Government special adviser role was rejected by officials.

One aide suggested that Mrs Johnson instead worked in communications for the Duke and Duchess’s Earthshot Prize, which gives an annual award of £1 million for environmental work.

But after Simon Case approached the Foundation, he was given a “quiet rebuke” and the idea was “kicked into the long grass” after staff said it would be inappropriate for Mrs Johnson to work there because she was engaged to the Prime Minister.

Officials are understood to have said that Mrs Johnson’s relationship would risk undermining the political neutrality of the royals’ work, while the role may also have required her to speak to journalists."

She should just get the kids to bed and go and do a few evening shifts to help make ends meet.

A piece of piss according to Rachel Maclean.

That Morgan interview was fucking odd, even for him

"You have your Facebook profile pic set as this character from the Thunderbirds...WHY?"

"It's a joke between friends as I look like the puppet"

Next 5 mins..

"WHY WON'T YOU TELL ME WHY. IS IT BECAUSE YOU WANT TO RUIN THE WORLD"

He then gave Grant Shatts a very easy ride, polar opposite of his stance that had the government boycotting GMTV. Wonder why that is..?🤔

Then got some sort of record video hit on Twitter and you are talking about it on here. Morgan is happy to look like a complete prick as long as it gets him spoken about...it worked

All you need to know about what type of person piers Morgan is, he gave the ok to hack a murdered girls phone for an exclusive story, thus giving her parents hope she was still alive

Just checked, you’re right, guess that story all merged into one at some point

I wonder if the mood of the nation might start turning, Brexit was the chance to "strike back at all the people with the money", I wonder if people are now starting to realise the real reason they're getting shafted

Who would they align themselves with at this point? It's not Labour, it's not the Tories?

Who are the anti-establishment party now?

not a chance. it's far more likely people will become entrenched in their views.
have said it before, brexit & the referendum have made everything bi-partisan. you are either with us, or against us. there are no longer shades of grey, or the ability to compromise.
Boris et al will continue to blame vulnerable others for his own mistakes and errors.

Brexit will go the same way as the Iraq war. You'll increasingly find it hard to find people who admit to supporting it at the time. Iraq actually had far greater public approval in 2003 as well.
