Sasha’s book be­trayal write out of or­der

- David Cameron · Boris Johnson · Alexander III of Russia

LAST week I felt in­tensely sorry for two men I usu­ally crit­i­cise.

The first was David Cameron, who is por­trayed as louche and raff­ish in Sasha Swire’s di­aries. He and Sa­man­tha had trusted this woman’s friend­ship and re­lied on her sup­port when they were dev­as­tated fol­low­ing his de­par­ture from No 10.

Swire, left, with hus­band Hugo, has sold Cameron’s mis­ery for filthy lu­cre and the sense of hurt must be bit­terly deep.

The sec­ond was Boris John­son, who was snapped look­ing hag­gard with a dog lead and baby’s feed­ing bot­tle in his hands.

That sums up the prob­lem: he has been se­ri­ously ill and is do­ing too much too soon.

He needs a proper rest away from both po­lit­i­cal and do­mes­tic du­ties.

Why don’t his friends force the is­sue?
