Who should be the next leader of the Conservative Party after Theresa May? The front runner is fading out as the Sun in an exclusive exposed Boris Johnson’s philandering issues and his marriage breakdown.
Mr Johnson’s exit will boost the chances of Home Secretary who is scoring 15 per cent in the chart. The Sun splashed the news of ex-foreign secretary and his high-flying lawyer wife Marina, both 54 on its front page.
The Johnsons’ 25-year marriage has been rocked previously by his flings with other women.
Before the marriage split news emerged, Mr Johnson as Tory members’ preferred next party leader. A regular poll on the ConservativeHome website revealed he now has the backing of 35 per cent of members and holds a 20-point lead over Home Secretary Sajid Javid in second place. Now the questions is how the Tory grassroots members with traditional views on marriage will react to Mr Johnson’s personal debacle. But he is a survivor. Neither of his previous infidelity scandals stopped him getting elected in 2008 as London mayor and re-elected in 2012.
Marina has thrown him out twice before — first in 2004 over his four-year affair with the writer Petronella Wyatt, and then again in 2010 when he was suspected of having a lovechild with art consultant Helen Macintyre. But both times Marina — mum to Lara and Boris’s other three children Milo Arthur, 23, Cassia Peaches, 21, and Theodore Apollo, 19 — eventually took him back.
The Johnsons are understood to have parted around the time they left the grace and favour mansion at Carlton Gardens last month following Boris’s resignation as Foreign Secretary, the Sun reported.
