Boris Johnson grows during managerial elections today after the fight with girlfriend Carrie Symonds

Boris Johnson should be grilled today in a leading election after the police were called to the flat he shared with girlfriend Carrie Symonds after reports of a & # 39; flat-breaking, screaming row & # 39 ;.

During the frightening bust-up, which took place in the early hours of Friday morning in the Ms Symonds flat in Camberwell, South London, the 31-year-old spider doctor was heard yelling: "get rid of me" and "go away from "My flat & # 39 ;.

The argument could seriously damage Johnson & # 39; s leadership, as he joins Jeremy Hunt this afternoon for the first of 16 national recruitments in Birmingham, where he will encounter questions from broadcaster Iain Dale.

Mr. Johnson, 55, and Mr. Hunt, 52, will each make a short pitch for the audience, followed by questions from Dale and the Tory members during the event.

Fierce queue news at Mrs. Symonds' flat came forward last night after a neighbor handed over a recording of the fiery altercation in The Guardian newspaper. In the recording, Mr. Johnson can be heard screaming & # 39; getting out of my f *** ing laptop & # 39; before a loud bang is heard.

The boy next door, the 32-year-old daycare worker Fatimah, was one of those who heard the loud dispute. She said: “There was a lot of shouting, a lady was shouting and I could hear glasses or plates being thrown a few times.

& # 39; The man shouted back. I could hear it through my walls. I watched TV and muted it because I was so worried. It took about ten minutes. I've never heard anything like this before.

& # 39; You could hear that glass was being destroyed and other things. It was clear that the lady was angry, she screamed hysterically. My walls were shaking with all the noise and the things thrown around. & # 39;

In recording their argument, Miss Symonds, who was hoping to marry Mr. Johnson after leaving his second wife, was heard to have complained about red wine on her couch. She then said: & # 39; You don't care about anything because you're spoiled. You have no worries about money or anything. & # 39;

Last night, MPs said that Mr Johnson could request an order to suppress any attempt to release the recording.

The neighbor who made the recording the Guardian told: & # 39; A popping sound of what sounded like records. There was a very loud scream that I know was Carrie and she screamed to get away a lot.

& # 39; She said, & # 39; come from my flat & # 39; and he said no. And then there was silence after the screaming. My partner, half asleep in bed, had heard a loud bang and the house shook.

& # 39; I was hoping someone would open the door and say: & # 39; We are good & # 39 ;. I knocked three times and nobody came to the door. & # 39; That neighbor called the police.

Scotland Yard initially told the Guardian that they had no report of the incident, but after they received the case number, the reference number and the car's identification marks, they confirmed that they were going to Miss's flat at 24 minutes past midnight Symonds had been called and had spoken to all the residents of the address, & # 39; who were safe and sound & # 39 ;.

The quarrel between Miss Symonds and Mr Johnson comes after the former Foreign Minister has won the last round of voting for a place on Downing Street with 160 votes, more than half of all conservative MPs.

Mr. Johnson showed no signs of the nocturnal queue because he was seen smiling at a conservative summer party just an hour after the news broke.

A spokesman for Mr. Johnson declined to comment on the incident.

It came as:

  • Several neighbors described the altercation as & # 39; the worst they have ever heard & # 39;
  • One MP warned that it could seriously damage Johnson's Tory leadership campaign
  • Another said the clash between Miss Symonds and Mr. Johnson is their & # 39; worst nightmare & # 39; used to be
  • Security minister Ben Wallace deleted a tweet that defended Mr. Johnson over the dramatic bust-up
  • Johnson turned out not to have told his campaign team about the police visit to the flat he shares with Miss Symonds

Lefty neighbors give admission to Guardian. Newspaper reaches new low point is a better news story. & # 39;

Reports show that Mr. Johnson had not informed his campaign team about the police visit last night.

This morning – in the aftermath of the fight – Tory former attorney general Dominic Grieve said that character is relevant in the conservative leadership race and adds that it is important in both public and private life.

What neighbors heard during the blood-curdling quarrel between Boris Johnson and his lover at her apartment in South London

Neighbors heard that Miss Symonds said to Johnson: & # 39; Get rid of me & # 39; and & # 39; get out of my apartment & # 39 ;.

She said he had ruined a bank of red wine: & You don't care because you're spoiled. You have no worries about money or anything. & # 39;

The neighbor who took the line told The Guardian: & There was a popping sound of what sounded like records. A few very loud screams sounded that I am sure it was Carrie and she screamed to go out a lot & # 39;

& # 39; She said, & # 39; come from my flat & # 39; and he said no. And then there was silence after the screaming. My partner, half asleep in bed, had heard a loud bang and the house shook.

& # 39; I was hoping someone would open the door and say: & # 39; We are good & # 39 ;. I knocked three times and nobody came to the door. & # 39;

Earl McDermott, who lives in the area, told MailOnline: & # 39; It was quite a tear. Glasses are crushed, shouted and a lot of hassle.

& # 39; I walked past Johnson & # 39; s house and you heard it coming from the top floor. I thought someone was killed. & # 39;

The neighbor boy, 32-year-old childcare worker Fatimah, said: & There was a lot of shouting, a lady shouting and I could hear glasses or plates being thrown a few times.

& # 39; The man shouted back. I could hear it through my walls. I watched TV and muted it because I was so worried.

& # 39; I am not used to being in a quiet neighborhood – nothing is going in, so I was worried.

& # 39; I did not call the police because the police arrived a few minutes later. I saw a police van and a police car appear. I knew they would probably address the situation.

& # 39; It took a little longer than ten minutes. His voice was fairly calm but her voice was louder. I couldn't understand what she was saying because she was just very angry. & # 39;

Raymond Campbell, 48 years old who lives four doors down, told MailOnline: & I saw the police arriving just after midnight. I just arrived.

& # 39; I didn't know what had happened, but I asked some neighbors & # 39; in the morning. They said there was a relationship between Johnson and his partner. & # 39;

He told BBC Radio 4 & # 39; s Today program: & # 39; I think the problem of the character of a candidate, representing a party's leadership, and the striving to be prime minister, will be relevant.

& # 39; And must be relevant because they are in a position of responsibility where they have to make very important decisions. & # 39;

He added: & # 39; I think one should be a bit careful about what aspects of the character really matter.

& # 39; But it is clear that matters such as reliability and honesty are very important things. And I think they are important in private and private life and that they are also important in public life. & # 39;

Residents expressed themselves after the altercation on Friday morning around 12.24 a.m.

Child caretaker Fatimah, who described that & # 39; glass was destroyed & # 39; at the property, said: & i have a four year old son and i was afraid that the noise would wake him up.

& # 39; He had a much calmer voice and he only told her to calm down, but she still threw things over. & # 39;

She added: & # 39; I did not call the police because the police arrived a few minutes later. I saw a police van and a police car appear. I knew they would probably address the situation.

& # 39; It took a little longer than ten minutes. His voice was fairly calm but her voice was louder. I couldn't understand what she was saying because she was just very angry. & # 39;

She said she wasn't sure who called the police.

Her husband, Imran, 33, said his wife had been afraid of the commotion.

When he asked him what he thought of the dispute, he said: & # 39; He is a human being, everyone makes arguments. We all get angry here and there. & # 39;

Raymond Campbell, 48 years old who lives four doors down, told MailOnline: & I saw the police arrive just after midnight. I just arrived

& # 39; Everyone knows that Boris Johnson lives here. We see him cycling around. The police entered his house and a police bus arrived a little later. They were there for about 10 to 15 minutes.

& # 39; I didn't know what had happened, but I asked some neighbors & # 39; in the morning. They said there was a relationship between Johnson and his partner. & # 39;

A neighbor told the Telegraph: & # 39; I heard the line, it was pretty loud. I was quite concerned to be honest, it was bad.

& # 39; I heard a lot of beating – it sounded like plates or glasses – and I could hear her scream. It was certain of her, I didn't hear him. There was a lot of shouting and cursing. It didn't take that long, maybe five minutes. It was unusual because it is very quiet here. We don't normally do this here. & # 39;

Two police cars & a van arrived within a few minutes, shortly after midnight, but after receiving reassurances from both people in the flat they left that they & # 39; are safe and well & # 39; goods.

Neighbors told the Times that they had not even realized that Johnson lived in the apartment until earlier this week.

One of them said: & # 39; Boris has been visiting for six to nine months. I think he lives there now because of the frequency that we see him. He leaves the house at 8 am and is picked up by his babysitters. & # 39;

Mr. Johnson was caught when Mrs. Symonds' words – & # 39; get off & # 39; and & # 39; come out of my flat & # 39; – were picked up on a neighbor's phone.

The Miss Symond flat is on the first floor of a converted semi-detached Georgian villa.

It is not clear whether the neighbor who has taken the line lives in the same building, either above or below, or on the first floor of the adjoining house.

A senior MP told Mail Online: & Boris is clearly the favorite in this leadership race, but four weeks in politics takes a long time.

& # 39; He has 16 recruitments, all of which are broadcast on TV … a lot can change.

& # 39; I think many conservative members are waiting for the outcome of the debates and things like that.

& # 39; This may well be their concern about him. You are talking about activists from the Conservative Party … there are many different types of people.

How Carrie Symonds has transformed the image of Boris Johnson

Carrie Symonds, a glamorous PR manager who describes friends as brilliant and ambitious, is seen as a transformation of Mr. Johnson's image.

Under her guidance, his famous blond mane has been trimmed, he has lost weight, and his characteristic, tousled appearance has been replaced by a sharply fitting image.

Carrie comes from a successful background because her father Matthew Symonds was a co-founder of The Independent newspaper and her mother Josephine Mcaffee a successful media lawyer.

The pair currently divides their time between her London apartment and her Oxfordshire home, but friends expect Carrie to go to 10 when Boris wins the leadership game.

& # 39; Despite the age gap, it's a good love match, & # 39; said one. & # 39; When they met, it was a ghost meeting. Carrie is incredibly fast and funny.

& # 39; He found her brilliant. She is passionate about pro-animal welfare and pro-environment, and Boris really likes that about her. & # 39;

Sources say that Carrie's ability to effortlessly combine the intense focus needed to win a fiercely fought leadership campaign with a playful sense of pleasure has been shifted to Boris, gaining a competence that his political operation once did not have .

Earlier this month, she attended his leadership competition, provoking speculation and hoping to move to number 10 if he succeeds in taking up his position of power.

It is also said that he would hope to marry Miss Symonds once his divorce with Marina Wheeler, with whom he has four children, has been completed. The breach is said to have seriously deteriorated the relationship between Mr. Johnson and his children.

Another MP said: & # 39; You just couldn't make it up. If the majority of your members are over 60, most have grandchildren, most are settled, most are stable … the activists turn around and say we want this guy to be PM? Anyone who is normal would think so.

& # 39; This guest will be prime minister and all this stuff is going on in his private life – how chaotic is he? If he can't keep it together at his age, what the hell is going on?

& # 39; This goes on and on. It will damage him. & # 39;

A Tory MP told the sun: & What on earth is he thinking? This is our worst nightmare. & # 39;

Others were more averse to the allegations, where a member of Mr. Johnson's team said: “It's just a fight with his girlfriend, right?

& # 39; I am sure it can all be explained and that is what I imagine Carrie is going to do tomorrow. & # 39;

A source for Jeremy Hunt, Mr. Johnson's opponent, said: & # 39; If this is as bad as it looks for the first time, it could be the shortest Tory Leadership competition ever. & # 39;

But Richard Barnes, who was Deputy Mayor of London under Mr. Johnson, told Newsnight: & I doubt the neighbors' motives there with a microphone pressed against the wall to record someone's line … so worried they were, they went to The Guardian. & # 39;

The line came just a few hours after Mr. Johnson had corrected his position as the runaway favorite to succeed Theresa May as prime minister.

In the last vote of Tory MPs, he received 160 votes, equal to more than half of the total.

His lead was so great that senior Tories believes he was able to & # 39; borrow & # 39; to Jeremy Hunt to eliminate his bitter rival Michael Gove.

On Saturday, he participates in the first of 16 TV broadcasts for Tory members in Birmingham.

It is suspected that Mr Johnson attended a benefit party in Reading on Thursday evening, before returning to the flat he shared with Miss Symonds since he left his second wife Marina last year.

It now risks adding concerns to some higher Tories about Mr. Johnson's suitability for senior office.

Could Boris Johnson's personal life be a responsibility for his chances of becoming a PM?

Mr. Johnson's team declined to comment tonight and hopes that the episode can be dismissed as a personal tirade.

But it is a concern among MEPs that Mr Johnson's fleeting personal life could be a responsibility and could be raised in a hectic series of election meetings where candidates are about to board.

Mr. Johnson announced that he split from second wife Marina Wheeler just before his relationship with Mrs. Symonds – former media head for the Conservative Party – became public.

If he succeeds Theresa May, Mr. Johnson is likely to earn the dubious record that he is the first prime minister in modern times to divorce Downing Street.

During the campaign, Mr. Johnson was confronted with pressure to indicate how many children he has.

Both BBC's Emma Barnett and ITV's Piers Morgan have excited his supporters about why Johnson was apparently unwilling to ask questions about his public and private life – including the number of offspring.

Mr. Johnson has four children with his wife Marina Wheeler, who he divorced from last year with the couple who are now divorcing.

In 2013, it turned out that Mr. Johnson had conceived a child in an extra-marital relationship with Helen Macintyre, a professional art consultant, and the Court of Appeal ruled that the public had the right to know about it after a privacy duel to hold the birth. secret.

The daughter is said to be the second child to be conceived by Johnson as a result of an affair during the trial, The Guardian said.

Mr. Johnson previously reached the headlines in the 2000s about an affair with the socialite Petronella Wyatt. She reportedly had an abortion as a result of the relationship.

Hunt has emphasized his own seemingly idyllic family life during his campaign so far, and also suggests that Mr. Johnson cannot be trusted by the EU & # 39; trusted & # 39 ;.

It can also raise doubts among party members, who are older and more socially conservative than the general public.

Supporters believe that the controversy over previous indiscretions, including a series of mistresses, a love child and the earlier tampering with drugs & # 39; have been priced in & # 39; by those who believe he is the only candidate who can deliver the Brexit and restore the fortune of the party.

But Mr. Hunt has made it clear that he is striving for a test of & # 39; character & # 39; to make.

Asked if he could defy the odds and win yesterday, Mr. Hunt replied & # 39; absolutely & # 39 ;, adding that the 160,000 members of the party were looking for & # 39; someone they trust as prime minster & # 39 ;.

In a statement, Scotland Yard confirmed that they had been called 24 minutes past midnight to the Miss Symonds flat. It went on: & # 39; The caller was concerned about the well-being of a neighbor. The police were present and spoke to all residents of the address, who were all safe and sound.

& # 39; There were no offenses or concerns visible to the officers and there was no reason for police action. & # 39;

Johnson has said little in public about his relationship with Miss Symonds, a former communications chief for the Conservative Party.

But the couple have been more open in recent months. Earlier this month, she attended his leadership competition, provoking speculation and hoping to move to number 10 if he succeeds in taking up his position of power.

It is also said that he would hope to marry Miss Symonds once his divorce with Miss Wheeler, with whom he has four children, has been completed. The breach is said to have seriously deteriorated the relationship between Mr. Johnson and his children.

Miss Symonds, a glamorous PR manager who describes friends as brilliant and ambitious, is seen as a transformation of Mr. Johnson's image.

Under her guidance, his famous blond mane has been trimmed, he has lost weight, and his characteristic, tousled appearance has been replaced by a sharply fitting image.

The incident certainly seems to disrupt Mr Johnson's carefully choreographed procession in number 10.

With polls showing that he has an overwhelming head start, the MP fought for media interviews and public appearances, fearing that his campaign might derail from a blunder.

An ally described it as the & # 39; Ming vase strategy & # 39 ;, compared his position with that of Tony Blair before the 1997 landslide election, which he described as & # 39; wearing a Ming vase on a polished marble floor & # 39 ;

The incident is concerned about MPs that Mr. Johnson's fleeting personal life could be a responsibility, and could be raised in an extraordinary number of election events where candidates are about to board.

Mr. Johnson announced that he split from second wife Marina Wheeler just before his relationship with Mrs. Symonds – former media head for the Conservative Party – became public.

If he succeeds Theresa May, Mr. Johnson is likely to earn the dubious record that he is the first prime minister in modern times to divorce Downing Street.

Mr Johnson is the big favorite to win the Tory Leadership competition and become the next Prime Minister.

The forerunner said it was him and not his challenger, Jeremy Hunt, who could reverse the fate of the Conservative Party after it had sustained a blood-curdling result in local and European elections earlier this year.

He made the remark when he and Mr. Hunt formally started their fight as they each met their first quirks by Tory members.

What happens now? Tory leading rivals are facing three weeks in a row for the loyal party

Jeremy Hunt has effectively fourteen days to derail the march from Boris Johnson to Tory leader – with the first election ceremonies taking place tomorrow.

The two candidates are faced with four weeks of campaigning events in which they explain their stables to the 160,000 Conservative members who will decide who will enter No10.

But their ballot papers are not broadcast by post until July 6 – which means Mr. Hunt has two weeks to give a knockout blow to the predecessor.

The party organized 16 election events across the country – with the first in Birmingham tomorrow afternoon. The last event will be in London on the evening of July 17 and a new leader will be announced in the week of July 22.

July 22: New leader announced

The precursor and the self-described & # 39; underdog & # 39; today tried to convince the conservative local bosses and councilors in what was the first of more than a dozen events for the grassroots party in which the couple will participate the following month.

But it is Mr. Johnson's opinion that made the biggest impression when he quoted the British-conservative war-time prime minister he wrote about.

& # 39; I never knew we got nine percent in a national election & # 39 ;, he said, according to The Sun, as he referred to the recent electoral struggle of the Tories.

& # 39; My message to you is today: the hour is darkest before dawn. We can turn this thing around. & # 39;

The support of the local government figures from Tory will be crucial for the chances of victory of both men and whoever becomes PM will depend on them to motivate activists and knock on doors.

The appearance of Mr. Hunt and Mr. Johnson before the Conservative Group of the Local Government Association came after it was claimed that Mr. Johnson's team had warned ministers that if they did not support them publicly, their careers would be destroyed.

The struggle to become prime minister, the last two will face a debilitating series of 16 recruitments in the UK, starting in Birmingham on Saturday, and up and down the country for the coming month.

The final outcome of the leadership competition will only be announced in the week of July 22, with the two remaining candidates taking part in a series of election meetings for Tory members across the country before votes are counted.

Johnson and Hunt will participate in a debate on ITV on July 9.

The broadcaster has promised to get & # 39; answers to the questions that matter & # 39; in his coverage of the two hopeful people to be the next prime minister.

ITV made the announcement following the news that Michael Gove had been knocked out of the leadership game, causing Messrs Johnson and Hunt to compete for votes from Tory membership.

It comes after the BBC program with the five possible PM & # 39; s was widely condemned after one of the & # 39; regular voters & # 39; posting questions emerged was an imam who had previously posted dirty tweets about Israel.

Two divorces, a child of love and a mistress scorned: the complicated romantic history of Boris Johnson

BY SAM GREENHILL

Glorification Boris Johnson has a series of failed relationships with his name.

The flirting MP started at least five extra-marital flirtations and got at least two of his mistresses pregnant.

When his affair with Carrie Symonds came to light last September, he and his long-standing wife Marina Wheeler asked for divorce. Their daughter Lara Johnson, 26, who is only five years younger than Miss Symonds, allegedly has her father a & # 39; selfish b ****** & # 39; branded.

Mr. Johnson – who once reported his cheating as & # 39; an inverted pyramid of piffle & # 39; had rejected – married Oxford University, Allegra Mostyn-Owen in 1987, but divorced in 1993 after cheating on her with Marina.

In 2004, his four-year affair with journalist and author of society, Petronella Wyatt, the daughter of Labor grandee Lord Wyatt, became public.

She later explained how she had an abortion and suffered a miscarriage.

Mr. Johnson was fired because of his role as shadow art minister by the then Tory leader Michael Howard because he lied about the relationship. Mr. Howard's spokesperson said at the time that it was a matter of & # 39; personal morality & # 39; went.

Two years later, World News reported an affair with journalist Anna Fazackerley, saying that Mr. Johnson had been seen leaving her apartment in London.

At that time, Miss Wheeler threw her husband away from their house, but the couple fixed it later.

The following year he fathered a child with art consultant Helen Macintyre.

It is clear that Miss Wheeler kicked him out of the parental home again.

In 2016, Miss Wyatt said: “He is excessively proud of his Turkish origin and his views on issues such as monogamy are definitely Eastern. & # 39; I find it really unreasonable for men to be limited to one woman & # 39 ;, he grumbled at me and could not understand the reaction of the media to his personal affairs. & # 39;

City lawyer Miss Wheeler, 54, a Cambridge-educated QC and the daughter of the veteran BBC correspondent Sir Charles Wheeler, endured her husband's unfaithfulness for years.

But last September was the last drop for the mother of the four older children of the MP – Lara, Milo Arthur, 23, Cassia Peaches, 21, and Theodore Apollo, 19.

Since then, Miss Symonds and her boyfriend have kept a low profile and only photographed a few times together.

Mr. Johnson owns a house in Oxfordshire, but has moved to the South London flat that Miss Symonds bought last year for just over £ 650,000 with the help of a mortgage.

On New Year's Eve they held a discreet party for close friends, who were said to be very much in love & # 39; laymen.

Miss Symonds is nicknamed & # 39; Flotus & # 39 ;, an abbreviation for & # 39; First Lady of the United States & # 39 ;, the acronym used for the wife of the American president. Mr. Johnson has reportedly tried to speed up his divorce so that he can take her to Downing Street if he wins the leadership game.
