He's done his bit by making Johnson appealing to dog lovers. He's probably now been returned.

But which one?

I see there are now claims of impropriety and 'leg squeezing' going back twenty years. Why can't these women (and they are usually women) say something sooner? It might save everyone a lot of grief.

Agree. 20 years ago I would find it difficult to give a very informative account of anything I did, or not...…………..

One could conclude then that it is perfectly acceptable for a 'random bloke' to squeeze a woman's bottom or leg, but it becomes a hanging offence the moment that random bloke becomes a senior politician or a 'famous celebrity'.

I am just glad I am married and getting old. I think I would be too afraid to ask a girl out today for fear of getting into trouble for doing or saying the wrong thing.

Re: Boris Gate

I imagine the next punter caught kerb crawling will just say "honest your worship I was just asking about technology lessons"
Suppose its an improvement on "I was lost and asking for directions"
