BOJO STRUGGLES WITH THE BILL

-

FeW can forget that dinner at the Garrick Club for past and present Telegraph hacks in november. It was, of course, the event at which it was alleged the PM was persuaded by pals of Owen Paterson to try to reverse the Commons standards committee’s ruling that the Tory backbenche­r had broken lobbying rules. Perhaps the ensuing uproar and humiliatio­n for Johnson — with Paterson forced to resign as an MP and a subsequent byelection victory for the lib dems — was rather distractin­g. For as the Oldie magazine reports, one of the journalist­s there has yet to pay their £85 share of the bill. and the guilty party? The PM!
