Boris Johnson made Chris Pincher a whip after being told of confirmed misconduct

Chris Pincher.

Doubts about Boris Johnson’s fitness to lead the UK must be multiplying after this revelation from the BBC:

Boris Johnson was made aware of a formal complaint about Chris Pincher’s “inappropriate behaviour” while Mr Pincher was a Foreign Office minister from 2019-20, BBC News can reveal.

It triggered a disciplinary process that confirmed the MP’s misconduct. Mr Pincher apologised after the process concluded, BBC News has been told.

BBC News understands the PM and the foreign secretary at the time – Dominic Raab – knew about the issue.

So Johnson knew Pincher was a wrong ‘un… and then appointed him to a hugely responsible position in the Whips’ Office anyway.

Remember that scandal in Theresa May’s time as PM, when the “dodgy dossier” of MPs’ wrongdoing known to the whips was made public?

Johnson put Pincher in that office and gave him access to that kind of information, we may conclude.

Was that a responsible thing to do – really?

It seems there may be much more muck to rake out of this already-filthy territory.
