This had to happen, after all the reports of cocaine traces found in almost all the toilets in the Palace of Westminster.
It seems Boris Johnson had a “routine” operation on his sinuses. That was enough for some of us to make fun of him:
UwU Pwime Ministew Bowis Johnson haz minuw woutine sinus opewation and is wecovewing in Downing Stweet ( ˘ ³˘)♥https://t.co/Y45Gts2ATz

Then some of us – and I admit this is the first thought that came to This Writer after hearing the news – had another idea:
JOHNSON HAS MINOR OPERATION ON SINUSES
Wonder if it was the same as the one Daniella Westbrook had
Line coming from No 10 not to be sniffed at 🤣#JohnsonOut147 #ResignNow #EnoughIsEnough

Daniella Westbrook is, of course, the former EastEnders star who famously had such a problem with cocaine that it destroyed her septum and she had to have cosmetic surgery as a result.

Soon, Twitter was alight:

Whilst the news is all about Johnson going to hospital for an operation on his "sinuses", why is famous Eastenders actress Daniella Westbrook trending? *sniff* *sniff*
P.S. We're not forgetting #Carriegate https://t.co/OUJxxLGJpJ

That "Daniella Westbrook" is trending, simply because Boris Johnson has a sinus op is why I can never leave Twitter

That might be enough for you, but there’s one more twist to the story:
*daniella Westbrook liked this* https://t.co/ogUxUl8cL5

Of course, there is no evidence that Boris Johnson has any current connection with either Ms Westbrook or cocaine.
(He does have a prior connection with the drug, though; in 2007,
Mr Johnson admitted to having used cocaine in an interview with Piers Morgan in GQ, but said the experience resulted in “no pharmacological, psycho-tropical or any other effect on me whatsoever”… He was unequivocal that the substance had been ingested, saying he “tried it at university” and remembered it “vividly”.)
But it speaks volumes about his ranking in the estimation of people across the UK that this was the first thing that came to their minds on hearing of his operation.
Given the recent Partygate scandal, a more “on the nose” comment would be that provided by Dorset Eye: that “Pinochhio” has had “his nose shortened”.
Neither response is an indication of faith in his leadership!

I love this blog. It’s made me look into the reasons for Sinus surgeries and the likely causes for them. On cocaine use they state that it is mainly disintegration of the septum but that it CAN cause issues in the sinus. It doesn’t state what issues. But later in the article it states that the common operation would be to remove polyps from the area which can be done under local or, as in Johnson’s case, a general anaesthesia. He had to have had a significant habit at one point to have damaged himself like this. It could have been before his political career of course..
