& # 39; Lynton did not like Mr. Johnson's accusatory question and knocked the phone down & # 39 ;, said a party insider.
Another political operator from Tory told News UK Sir Lynton and his allies saw Miss Symonds as a political liability towards Mr. Johnson, a father of four who turned 55 last month.
& # 39; They consider her to be a barnacle on the boat and wonder if Boris judged it was a good idea for him to show off their relationship when he ran premier, & # 39; said this source.
Miss Symonds resigned from her Tory position in August 2018, a month after Johnson resigned as foreign minister in protest against the predecessor Theresa May's progress over the Brexit negotiations.
Nameless sources had previously told the Daily Mail that the Conservative Party leaders had accused her of incurring unauthorized charges.
They secretly include taxis in the names of junior staff to hide the fact that they were before her, and use taxis for free trips home and to bars and restaurants to meet friends , even when they were not employed.
