Jennifer Arcuri has confessed she had a codename for Boris Johnson that was intended to conceal their friendship when he rang her on the telephone.
The tech enterpriser saved the top Tory as ‘Alexander the Great’ after the Ancient Greek military leader and it came as she refused seven times to deny any sexual relationship with Boris Johnson but denied he granted her favours when he was the Mayor of London.
And she said that they swapped numbers after she met him during public events and that they instantly bonded over their shared appreciation of classic literature and evidently he wanted to be able to talk to her directly, so she gave him her number and that was that.
The first communication was when she was out with her friends and the call came in and her friends said that she couldn’t have his number because his privacy had to be safeguarded, so she put him under a codename.
But tech guru and former model Ms Arcuri blasted into the headlines after it surfaced she was given access to three foreign trade trips and that she had Boris speak at four of her events when he was the Mayor of London.
Boris Johnson had 24 hours to give details of their relationship to a conflict of interests probe in the London Assembly whose precepts prevent complementary treatment to friends but the Prime Minister claimed there was no interest to declare and has been referred to the police complaints body to evaluate whether he should face a criminal investigation.
But despite the top-level access, which started after they met in October 2011, Ms Arcuri asserted that Boris Johnson never gave her favouritism and she repeatedly declined to dismiss claims by acquaintances that she had a sexual relationship with the 55-year-old Prime Minister.
She also refused to say how many times Boris Johnson visited her Shoreditch flat, which contained an office and a pole dancing pole and she revealed that the new Prime Minister ask her to show him a few things on the pole.
So, they immediately bonded over their respective love of classic literature, sounds more like Fifty Shades of Grey, I wonder what shade of grey this series is from? Now I need a cup of cappuccino to read this scandalous romance.
And why would her friends claim that she had to have a codename for him? Undoubtedly there’s more than one Boris in London, and if you noticed the name Boris on someone’s phone you wouldn’t instantly leap to the conclusion that it was the Mayor of London.
Clearly, she’d been chatting to her friends about him for them to assume that stance, and she must have told them that there was rather more to it than simply showing him which buttons to press but then who cares, because Boris Johnson is human just like the rest of us – as long as he’s not giving away taxpayers money.
