    My theory is that things were getting a little too passionate in the Johnson dept. and this is why he doesn't want to talk about it.

    I can understand why, I don't want to talk about it either. Ever. Thx

    Can we not say Johnson dept? It doesn't exactly invoke pleasant images.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.

    A female voice specifically asked the male to leave, to get the hell out.. loud enough that the neighbour was concerned, smashing plates etc..

    So that means HE was abusive to HER??? FFS.

    You've an odd idea of what a normal relationship is.

    I suppose your ideal is like Mrs Bucket and Richard of "Keeping up Appearances" ?

    One row where she shouted and roared at him and most likely threw plates at him - men rarely throw plates, that's typically a female thing to do - and he's the abuser. That's the world we live in now.

    Presumably they have lived next door for months or years and this is the only incidence of an argument they have had - sounds like a very normal healthy relationship to me.

    I don't care much for BJs politics but this is total BS.

    I've never roared at my wife and neither of us have ever thrown plates. Same for my parents. I'd consider that normal and healthy.

    Happily married 23 years in September. Plenty of roaring shouting screaming cups and plates thrown, small tables upended, doors slammed cars revved..no neighbor ever called the Garda, all forgotten about tomorrow. Normal adult relationship .

    So what? No, honestly, a couple of adults have a few too many at the end of a stressful week, a fight breaks out, some stuff gets broken, the police come, both reassure the police that all is well.
    What do you want to happen now?

    There is absolutely nothing normal about it, in any way. If anyone roared, screamed or broke things around me in an argument it would be a permanent exit.

    Get off me...doesn' t neccessarly mean abuse...they could have been having the craic or even kinky sex

    Poor Boris appears to have had a ferocious row with his latest squeeze which resulted in neighbours calling the police.

    His fellow Tories are not impressed. Will this impact his leadership bid?
    I actually don't think so.

    Its just among Tories themselves.

    I am not even sure of the details of what happened.

    and get out of my flat.

    Bit hard to have sex kinky or otherwise if the other person is outside.

    She said get off me and get out of my flat. Allegedly.

    She is not talking now though.

    Really bad week for the Tories.

    First Mark Field ..Now Boris.

    Media Storm versus Stuff that people actually care about.

    Nobody cares about this non story other than the media and political opponents. People who will go out and vote couldn't give the remotest horse manure about this.

    The media are still bewildered as to why they are being labelled the Enemy of the People.

    When did someone give you a white coat and tell you that you personally and without any qualifications could decide what constituted a normal adult relationship?

    Would you not be concerned?

    Would you not be worried he was attacking her? She shouted get off me and get out of my flat.

    There were things banging and a neighbor was either so fed up of the noise or worried they called the police.

    her flat is a euphemism for her vagina


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,935 ✭✭✭✭ ILoveYourVibes


    WOW


    Now other neighbors are cooperating the first man's story. Two other separate neighbors have backed up his account.


    They say it was like someone was being murdered.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jun/23/boris-johnson-more-neighbours-confirm-tear-up-with-partner-carrie-symonds?CMP=twt_gu&utm_medium=&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1561291141
    Two others back up Tom Penn’s account, one of whom ‘thought someone was being murdered’
    Tom Penn went public on Saturday as the neighbour who had recorded the argument in the early hours of Friday morning. He said he had dialled 999 because he had been “frightened and concerned for the welfare of those involved”.

    Penn, who has lived in his south London flat with his wife for just over a year, said he contacted the police only as a last resort after knocking three times at the couple’s front door.

    Symonds can be heard on Penn’s recording telling Johnson, 55, to “get off me” and “get out of my flat”.


    They can't all be leftists.

    I bet Boris Johnson regrets saying Mark Field should be Knighted now.

    He has blown it. They can't make this guy leader ...he has ruined his career.

    4 with his ex wife.

    1 with a woman he had an affair with which he tried to keep under wraps until a court decided it could be reported on.

    Strong rumours he has another secret love child.

    A white coat? Doesn't take a scientist to know that smashing things in an argument is not normal.

    According to Wiki, he has five!

    Lol. I've been with my partner for over 12 years and we've never thrown plates, upended tables or smashed cups during an argument.

    It's really not a normal relationship for any of the above to happen. What are you throwing plates for?
