Acuri confirms sexual relationship with Johnson

As described in the DailyGasLamp, there was a relationship between Johnson and Jennifer Arcuri and that Johnson used public money to splaffe over Arcuri. Arcuri confirms the sexual nature of the relationship. QED: Johnson used public money to buy sex. Splaffe!

Jennifer Arcuri has reportedly admitted having an affair with Boris Johnsonafter allegations that he used his position as London mayor to get the businesswoman favourable treatment.

The prime minister avoided a criminal investigation after the police watchdog found no evidence that he influenced the payment of thousands of pounds of public money to Acuri, or secured her participation in foreign trade trips that he led.

The Daily Mail reported that, when asked if she had an affair with Johnson while he was with his then wife Marina Wheeler, she said: “I think that goes without saying …It’s pretty much out there … But I’m not going to talk about it.” 

In the interview in Kentucky, where she is visiting family, she also discussed being bombarded by his “avalanches of passion”. When asked if she loved him, she is quoted as saying: “At the time I cared for him very deeply, but I never used the L word. I wouldn’t have recognised being in love. I cared very much about this man and I think that’s resolutely clear. That’s all I want to say.”

The L Word

I think the L word Acuri refers to is more the “£” word. (From wikiepedia: “The £ symbol derives from the upper case Latin letter L, representing libra pondo, the basic unit of weight in the Roman Empire, which in turn is derived from the Latin word, libra, meaning scales or a balance.)

Oh and incidently, the picture of Acuri outside 10, it is not photoshopped… (but was taken around 2015/2016, before Johnson was PM).

Perugia: 2020 re-run of Johnson’s mystery trip of 2018

Johnson is up to something.

  • It could be just organising his exit from Downing Street – or is that just wishful thinking?
  • Handing over the UK to the USA after a no-deal Brexit?
  • Or carving it up to suit the Russians?

This latter theory is based upon Johnson’s relationship with the son of former KGB Spy, Alexander Lebedev. 40 year old Evgeny Lebedev and Johnson have a strong bond: they met in 2009, when the former was dating “Spice Girl” Geri Halliwell and the latter was Mayor of London. That same year, Lebedev bought the Evening Standard newspaper together with his father and former KGB spy, Alexander. Since then, Evgeny and Boris have never left each other: Lebedev has even a dog named after the prime minister. In 2012, Johnson went to Lebedev’s Perugia for another party and Lebedev reportedly paid for everything, from private jets to taxis. In addition to the infamous trip in 2018, Johnson celebrated with the Russian millionaire also the landslide victory of the 2019 election and recently he handed him a peerage, making “Lord Lebedev” the first Russian-British member of the upper house of the glorious British Parliament.

As reported in La Republica, there is an official statement of the Italian airport dated September 17th, the British prime minister “travelled to Perugia over the past few days”. Sources: “Johnson landed in Perugia on Friday 11 September at 2 pm and left on Monday morning”. But Downing Street states “This claim is wrong”. This all stinks of a massive cover-up… since he supposedly held a Zoom Meeting, baptised his child and attended a Covid-19 meeting while he was secretly away at a location he is known to have partied. Some reports claim that he was baptising his child in Italy. This is clearly just a “limited hangout”. BJ was there for BJ not baptism. Apparently Airport Officials have backtracked and state that they had confused Johnson with Tony Blair (although clearly their original statement (see below) clearly differentiated them).

Much of this report is from La Republica…

During the weekend of the 12th and 13th September, the British premier is reported to have secretly been in Perugia, Italy. An official statement of the local airport dated September 17th claims that Mr Johnson was in Perugia “over the past few days”. Local airport sources state that Johnson “travelled to Perugia”. A source reported that Johnson landed in Perugia.

The mystery of Boris Johnson’s “trip to Perugia”
On the afternoon of Thursday September 17th, a famous Uruguayan Barcelona footballer, Luis Suarez, arrived in Perugia, welcomed by cheering fans and supporters, to take an Italian exam in order to obtain the Italian passport. Immediately afterwards, the international airport of Perugia issued a proud statement: “Over the past few days, many names and personalities from the political, sporting and economic world have arrived here in Perugia. From Prada CEO Patrizio Bertelli to the British PM Boris Johnson, preceded by Tony Blair (former UK premier) and not least the champion footballer Luis Suarez from Barcelona, who landed this afternoon to take an Italian language exam at the University for Foreigners of Perugia. Umbria and our airport are at the center of the world at this end of the season, with more and more personalities choosing the “San Francesco d’Assisi” airport thanks to its strategic position in the center of Italy, the speed of connection and the always punctual and efficient service that the airport is able to guarantee”.

Boris Johnson in Perugia “over the past few days”? Could that be possible? In the past, Johnson had frequented several times Umbria’s main town, mostly to visit his longtime friend Evgeny Lebedev, 40 years old, a Russian-British businessman and editor of the London newspaper “Evening Standard”, well known also for his famous weekend parties at his majestic estates in Umbria. Johnson’s last trip there on the record caused quite a scandal: on April 28th 2018, as Foreign Minister of May’s government, he flew to Umbria without security less than two months after the Russian novichok poisoning of the double-agent spy Sergej Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, in order to join one of the parties in fabulous Palazzo Terranova, Lebedev’s fairytale residence, shrouded in impenetrable secrecy. At the same place, that same year, the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman had come for a dinner together with Virgin boss Richard Branson. The following morning, on April 29th, Johnson turned up at San Francesco d’Assisi airport, still unescorted, and looking sleepy and drained, with his shirt out of trousers and his wrinkled attire, as if he had slept in those same clothes until a few hours before embarking a Ryanair flight to London Stansted Airport.

Asked about the September 17th press release mentioning Johnson on the same day, a Perugia airport spokesman confirmed it, adding that both “Johnson and Blair were here in Perugia last week”. An airport worker confirmed Johnson’s presence “on Friday Sept 11th or Thursday Sept 10th, I don’t remember well”. Another airport source assured that the British Prime Minister arrived “on Friday September 11th at 2 pm and left on Monday September 14th at 7.45”, while former PM Tony Blair was reported to be in Perugia from 8 to 11 September, according to the same source.

Earlier in the morning of Friday September 11th, the British Prime Minister was reputed to working in Downing Street. Later that day, the PM also had a Zoom call with 256 Tory MPs on Brexit: Johnson’s Internet line was remarkably poor that evening and broke down for about 20 minutes. “When Johnson came back on the line he joked that he should probably invest in gigabit broadband”, an MP told “Politics Home”.

As for the outward journey, however, there were two other private flights from Farnborough airport that week: one was a Hawker Beechcraft jet landing in Perugia on Thursday 10 September at 1.30pm, the second one a Bombardier Challenger 350 landed at 10.59 on Saturday 12 September. According to the website Flightradar24, Johnson’s alleged return flight from Perugia started at 8.27 am on Monday by a Embraer Legacy 500 jet, landing at 9.39 am local time at the RAF British military airport Northolt. Which is located, among other things, in Ruislip, adjoining Johnson’s constituency of Uxbridge and South Ruislip.

According to sources from Perugia airport, the return plane was supposed to take off at 7.45 am that day. However, apparently there was a problem because it took off 40 minutes later than the scheduled time. That Monday morning, September 17th, Johnson and the British Home Secretary, Priti Patel, were due to visits in London, then everything was cancelled at the last moment. That afternoon Downing Street added that Johnson “was in London and attended a coronavirus meeting in the morning”.

On Saturday September 12th, Johnson, together with his girlfriend Carrie Symonds, reportedly baptised his little son Wilfred, as broken last Monday by the “Telegraph” and the “Sun”, an event that Downing Street hasn’t commented on. On that occasion, it had been defined “an ultra-secret ceremony”, for which no details or the place were known, but a source told the “Sun” that “they’re not intending to release photographs as it was a special private moment. It was a priority for Boris and ­Carrie that the entire ­baptism was Covid secure. There was no reception or party afterwards. Perhaps they’ll have a big celebration whenever they get married.” Checking the website Flightradar24, almost half of the (very few) flights operating at Perugia airport were connecting the Umbria main town and London.

From Ricky Coxon

  • Boris did/not go to Perugia in Italy” – why does this matter? A thread.
  • 1/ Background first. On the 17th Sept, officials at Perugia airport said Johnson was there “in the last few days”. Later they confirmed he “landed on the 11th at 2pm and left on the 14th at 7:45am”.
  • 2/ Downing Street denies he went at all. So the first issue is that either the officials at Perugia airport are lying or Johnson’s staff at Downing street are. This isn’t the first and only time Johnson has lied so I’m calling dibs on it being him.
  • 3/ The evidence is pretty obvious. The Flightradar site shows a couple of private jets flying in and out of Perugia’s airport at approximately the times above – one even landed at an RAF base in Johnson’s home constituency.
  • 4/ Why Perugia? And why lie about it? Well apart from making the lie the dead cat story, it is pretty worrying that Johnson has gone there. Perugia is the home of Johnson’s longtime friend Evgeny Lebedev. He’s been there before on a number of occasions.
  • 5/ One time in 2018, whilst foreign secretary and just after the Salisbury poisonings, he went to Perugia without any security and was seen at the airport looking disheveled and worse for wear.
  • 6/ Lebedev also threw a huge party for Johnson after he won the 2019 general election in December. Aww, that’s nice. Friends.
  • 7/ But the real question is: in the midst of the 2nd wave of Covid-19 AND during the most crucial period in EU trade deal negotiations AND during the largest recession in modern history, did Prime Minister Johnson toddle off on a jolly?
  • 8/ Evgeny Lebedev is the son of Alexander Lebedev. Alexander was a KGB spy for Russia based in London. During the collapse of the USSR, Alexander became an oligarch worth an estimated $3b. Not bad considering his parents were teachers in communist Russia.
  • 9/ Like most of the Russian oligarchs, at the end of the USSR, Alexander was given a ton of state assets that moved from public ownership to private hands making him very rich indeed.
  • 10/ Many people, including myself, have warned that Brexit will create a handful of extremely rich oligarchs at the cost of the ordinary UK citizen. But that might just be a complete coincidence.
  • 11/ The Putin-supporting Lebedev’s own two British newspapers, the Evening Standard and the Independent, as well as a Russian newspaper.
  • 12/ If I were an oligarch that gained my wealth by illicit means, I would buy a newspaper in a foreign tax haven and use it to control the narrative and spread misinformation that enabled me to continue my life of total lawlessness & spoilt privilege. But that’s me.
  • 13/ In Fact, in spring 2019, MI6 and special branch had Evgeny Lebedev down as a “potential security risk”. But by June 2019 this was down-graded by order of the Cabinet Office and Lebedev was then given an honours in the Queens new years honours list.
  • 14/ Gove and Cummings run the Cabinet office by the way. Their financial backer and founder of LeaveEU is multi-millionaire Aaron Banks. He’s married to the daughter of another former Russian spy and Putin oligarch. I shit you not, look it up.
  • 15/ When Cummings broke the lockdown rules people asked “what does he have on Johnson?”. A former senior MI6 officer has speculated that “someone may have a Kompromat on the Prime Minister”.
  • 18/ Anyway, over the weekend, some files called #FINCEN were leaked. They contain over 200,000 suspicious financial transactions worth over $2trillion that were facilitated by banks around the world, including UK bank HSBC. Both the US and UK Gov’t appears to have ignored them.
  • 19/ One of these dodgy transactions was for $8m and involved another Russian oligarch called Vladimir Chernukhin. He’s a close ally of Putin and a general bad guy. He’s been accused by US officials as “playing a key role in advancing Russia’s malign activities”.
  • 20/ Vladimir’s wife, Lubov Chernukhin, has donated £1.7m to the Tory party just before the Brexit vote. She’s paid £160,000 to Boris Johnson for a game of tennis too. The Chernukhin’s live in London. Is anyone spotting a pattern yet?
  • 21/ Very powerful, wealthy, and loyal Russian oligarchs have set-up base in London. They own and use the British press and the UK’s generous tax avoidance network, including British banks, along with the inner sanctum of the Tory party to influence UK politics to their advantage.
  • 22/ And then earlier this year we finally got to hear about the Russian interference report. It said UK authorities were deliberately looking the other way when it came to foreign interference in our elections and democracy. It’s starting to make sense now.

Comedy as a Right Wing Tool

The “Have I Got News For You” Effect

Juliet Jacques (writer, filmmaker and host of the political arts podcast Suite) takes apart the gaslighting within the BBC’s and MSM Comedy in her article “How Corbyn Unmasked Comedy”. She argues that the way comedians treated Jeremy Corbyn demolishes their anti-establishment credentials (and thus exposes the gaslighting from the establishment). This post quotes extensively from Jacques article.

While comedians should have, could have and probably did, make fun of Corbyn’s Jam making and interest in manhole covers, apparently the true fun was apparently re-running the establishment gaslighting of Corbyn as AS, Russia-lover and terrorist sympathizer. So either comedians are no longer anti-establishment, left wingers or they have lost the ability to see how they had been co-opted into a right wing agenda.

While New Labour allowed comedy shows like The Thick Of It to project Labour and Conservatives as “all the same”. This proposition wore thin as Cameron and Osborne’s cuts became harsher. It collapsed when Corbyn assumed the Labour leadership on an anti-austerity platform. Suddenly, the “both-sides -framing” comedian jokes were no longer funny. It was only with Corbyn’s ascent that showed that mainstream comedy had been taken over and completely de-radicalised over the previous two decades. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, one could see Spitting Image taking apart the Conservatives or Fry and Laurie shoving Rupert Murdoch off a bridge for the sake of humanity. Somewhere in the early 21st century comedy was taken over as a tool for the establishment. The fool became the tool.

As many commentators have noted Johnson’s appearance on Have I got News For You made him appear approachable, making him more likely to be elected leader of the Conservative Party (and hence PM) despite his dreadful record with women, children, public money, Russian spies, diplomacy, detail and the truth. Did Corbyn refuse the offer of appearing on the show? Was he ever asked?

Charlie Brooker, who had long cast himself on Screenwipe as an angry outsider, alone on his sofa venting his frustrations about politics and its mediation, did a typically cynical vignette on his 2016 end-of-year show on Corbyn’s argument with Richard Branson over whether seats were available on a Virgin train. Coming right after a gag about Corbyn failing to ‘recognise’ anti-Semitism, with no mention of his record of standing up for Jewish and anti-fascist causes, Brooker spent far more time attacking Corbyn than Branson. He did so with no consideration of why Branson might cast doubt on Corbyn’s story, nor why Sky News would side with Branson, let alone giving any idea of why his willingness to confront corporate interests appealed enough to Labour’s members for them to re-elect him by a landslide that summer. Brooker’s sister-in-law, incidentally, is a Labour MP who supported Owen Smith in that leadership contest.

Juliet Jacques

Another trend that made it harder for satirists to land meaningful blows on the Labour leader was that the media attacked Corbyn from every possible angle, often in mutually contradictory ways: comedians then became no differnt from the establishment!

Mainstream comedy came out of the GE2019 very badly. Russell Howard, with a net worth of £5 million, told his audience that Corbyn and Boris Johnson were politically indistinguishableHave I Got News for You – and the satirical paper Private Eye, edited by regular HIGNFY panellist Ian Hislop – blamed Corbyn for Johnson’s victory without taking responsibility for helping Johnson establish his ‘harmless clown’ persona through repeated appearances on the programme.

In this sense, Johnson stands alongside Donald Trump, Jair Bolsonaro, Volodymyr Zelensky and Jar-Jar Binks as right-wing populists who built up a supportive base through mass entertainment. Like them, Johnson is impervious to satire – he doesn’t care how he comes across to ‘respectable’ people. With an 80 seat majority – that was predicted by Cummings and then delivered by the power of Big Data, electoral roll confusion and postal vote fraud, using money from Russian Oligarchs and other Tax Haven users, Johnson can do anything and get away with anything.

There is a Pattern

The Establishment approach to control of comedy reflects the way the press, magazines and music have been infiltrated since WW2.

  • The Press – “free press” dominated by a few billionaires. Read up on Operation Mockingbird and Orwell Rolls in his Grave
  • Music industry was infiltrated, turning the revolutionary zeal of 1950, 60s and 70s to bland pop of the 21st century.
  • Social media – dominated by a few companies: facebook and google – both having support from right wing sources. Note that Tik-Tok is about to be banned!

The comedy you watch is being changed, controlled and steering you in a particular direction. You are being gaslit.

BBC threatens left wing comedians not to mock Government or Trump!

And from the Independent, 2nd September 2020

BBC can’t find enough Right Wing Comedians

The Dog That Doesn’t Hunt

You have to make your own mind on this but it does look like the IOPC is like the Dog That Doesn’t Hunt… The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) examined the prime minister’s dealings with businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri, and whether her company benefited financially from their relationship but…

“Evidence required to establish whether Boris Johnson may have committed misconduct in public office had been deleted. The material stored in digital devices, email accounts and computer drives belonging to the mayor and his appointees was deleted when he left office in 2016.”

IOPC Report 2020

Notice the lack of mention of reviewing data on servers, archives or back-ups, which is where you’d expect to find the evidence.

“The requirement in the Greater London Authority (GLA) Records Management Guidance for any material concerning GLA business (which includes sponsorship and trade missions) to be transferred to executive officers prior to deletion appears not to have been followed.”

IOPC Report 2020

The report said there was

  • no record of the rationale for accepting Ms Arcuri’s attendance on trade missions
  • or sponsorship of applications for grants
  • or the decision to pay her lnnotech company almost £24,000.

Note that elsewhere the figures being discussed are much higher.

“Mr Johnson’s solicitors have said he has no relevant documents in his custody or control, and Ms Arcuri has said that she deleted any relevant email correspondence…” and the failure to ensure GLA records were secured… “may have prevented the review from reviewing relevant evidence”.

IOPC Report 2020

The GLA stated that email and computer drives of departing staff, including a mayor and their appointees, are “promptly deleted” as a matter of course, and that mobile phones and laptops are returned and wiped for re-use. [TDG: again no mention of servers, back-ups or archives]

The GLA’s own guidance says departing mayors should arrange for records to be preserved but “there is no evidence that Mr Johnson and his outgoing appointees transferred any records to executive officers at the end of the mayoral term in 2016, nor that they were reminded of their obligation to do so before they left”.

The IOPC called for the “matter of concern” to be addressed with a full audit of the GLA’s information retention policies. (TDG: In other words, the GLA had already wiped and shredded everything of any importance because of the l-o-n-g process of alerting them to the fact that the investigation was going to happen.)

The IOPC reported “months of efforts” to access evidence but concluded that there were no further “reasonable and proportionate steps that can be taken by this review or by any future criminal investigations which could result in the recovery of more material”.

The IOPC concluded that there was only evidence supporting reasonable suspicion that Mr Johnson committed misconduct in public office in relation to one of six allegations. That related to a 2015 trade mission in New York, where Ms Arcuri was permitted to attend despite the fact her company was not eligible to participate. The report said it “occurred after the time when we have evidence suggesting that there may have been an intimate/sexual relationship between Ms Arcuri and Mr Johnson”. A letter from Mr Johnson’s solicitor said: “If and when Ms Arcuri did attend any such events, our client was not previously expecting her to attend.”

After conducting interviews, taking statements and reviewing more than 900 documents reviewed, including eight years of relevant emails from other sources, the IOPC concluded that a criminal investigation could not be launched.

“For Mr Johnson to have committed an offence of misconduct in public office, there must be evidence either that he wilfully misconducted himself or that he wilfully neglected his public duties,” it added.

Trying to find another methaphor for “the Dog That Doesn’t Hunt”, this was the result: the term is modelled on the 17th-18th century phrase “that cock won’t fight”. In the days of cock-fighting, a cock that wouldn’t fight when out into the pit and so a natural metaphor for a plan that wouldn’t work. And indeed, Johnson may not have got his “leg over”… but, it does look the IOPC has just generated a lot of work with no intention of uncovering any misconduct. Both have indicated that there was a “relationship” and Arcuri milked it for all it was worth – she cannot be blamed for that – but see her videos on youtube – her technical prowess is not high despite her bravado. Whether there was sex there is, in any case, irrelevant (although it seems highly likely), Johnson should not use his public office to grant her favours AND THERE IS EVIDENCE HE DID THAT!

The only way to really decide his guilt would be in court. But this will not happen. The establishment will not be sending the Prime Minister to trial. Meanwhile, has anyone seen the Russia Report?

Stories being lost in CovId GasLight

While the Queen is coming on TV to say “stay indoors… we will meet again” (rather obviously WW2 imagery), questions over her son, Andrew, and his relationship with arch-blackmail and pedophile, Geoffery Epstein, and victim, Virginia Roberts, remain unanswered. Andrew claims that he can’t remember the relationship – presumeably because he was bonking so many other of Epstein’s young girls at the time. Andrew doesn’t refute knowing Epstein only Roberts. He claims that the photo of him and 17 year old Roberts was faked (despite photographic experts claiming it hasn’t been). He counters her acusations by trite responses: how he couldn’t sweat at the time because of PTSD from when he was a helicopter pilot in the 1982 Falklands War and on a particular date Roberts mentioned, Andrew claimed he was at Pizza Hut in Woking despite not producing any substantial evidence for these counter claims. It’s nuts! No impartial person would believe Andrew and not believe Roberts. That is why Andrew is refusing to help the FBI investigation into Epstein (despite saying pubically that he would).

Anyway here is a full video of the investigation into Epstein and his role with the global elites.

Video of Epstein investigation (March 2020)

Meanwhile a new book highlights the danger of still-on-the-run, Epstein Accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell. American lawyer Bradley Edwards made it his life’s mission on behalf of countless young female victims to put Jeffrey Epstein behind bars. Following the billionaire paedophile’s “death”, he has written a book, Relentless Pursuit. The Daily Mail is reprinting summaries of the stories within the book which includes Maxwell herself abusing young girls.

Meanwhile, Roberts’ latest concern is that doctors are trying to kill her off with CovId-19. While her paranoia levels may be quite high on this claim, try to see it from her perspective: it is not an unreasonable conclusion considering the the strangeness of Epstein’s own death and the strange suicide of Ghislane’s father. But to truly decide how this is news is being treated, just read some of the comments to the Daily Mail story: the overwhelming majority are criticisms of Roberts herself!

Meanwhile Andrew breaks cover to hand over Easter Eggs in a publicity stunt. Obviously expecting to go unchallenged, unpunished.

Of course, no story at the moment can go without discussing Boris Johnson and his return from the fridge-like environment of the ICU at St Thomas’ Hospital. Regarding Prince Andrew, he said he’d seen good that Andrew has done for UK business overseas; he sat next to Andrew in public in November… and that the institution of the monarchy was “beyond reproach” – like being able to do what they like, to who they like with no justice to the victims… From the DailyGasLamp point of view, the elite control the news agenda using news management to bury bad news, never letting a crisis go to waste, fooling the public with bread and circus displays, keep watching the TV (because the revolution will never be on TV)…. so… on a scale from 1 to 10 how likely were the elites ready to commit election fraud in December 2019?
