Was Conor Burns in line for a peerage as a payoff for silence?

Last Updated: October 11, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Conor Burns, the formerly-Tory MP who was sacked from the government and suspended from the Conservative whip after an alleged altercation with another man’s thigh, was in line for elevation to the House of Lords by Boris Johnson, it seems.

The reason?

Well, we don’t know for sure – but the smart money says it’s because he was the one who burst in on Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds (as she was then) while he was allegedly (again) having an extra-marital canoodle with her in a government office, some years ago.

Burns didn’t spill the beans on this one, although details emerged later.

It’s a deeply dodgy reason for sending anyone to the Upper Chamber of Parliament – especially somebody who may have a record of sexual inappropriateness.

Yes indeed: sordid.
