A dream of squeaky


I was in another country. NZ I think. I was staying in a house with two women who were much old than me. Then mother eas there. he house had a woden floor. I was trying not to annout these people in that pokey house. It was unlovely and I do not recall the view. Not sure what I was doing there. Then mater said I was a Ganymede. She said it slowly and deliberately. It was notn quite ana ccusation. I was docile and responded in a measured manner that she was mistaken. she kept repeating it. we had discussed such conduct at the duke;s head yesternigth with the chums who showed up.

Laer I thoyght of a small man with a very dense warm brown beard. He was known as squaeaky n account of his rasping voice. He served foul beer. remers had compaliedn about such a chap in kent in 1994. Remers nonetheless drank the horrid beer. I awaoke and laughed myself silly at the name Squeaky remidned me of sequaky ave the very slender bald chap in dukhan.

later I was upin the thorne. had been dressed up as dracual playing with Fridays child. then he looked in 0 loo door was open. buni and bu came in. came too close. disliked being crowded. someone beside me was crowding me in reality. bu pulled a wooden partition out to guard my dignty.

going to the house. I feel a tad gauche that I shall spend time in saddler’s place.

Anne McElvoy had an affair with Boris Johnson


Around 2002 Anne McElvoy had a affair with Boris Johnson. Johnson was married to Marina Wheeler then – he still is. At the time Bo Jo was MP for Henley. He was also editor for the Spectator.

I have this on good authority from someone who worked with Boris every day. Miss McElvoy has reported on Bo Jo and never declared and interest. In 2008 when he stood for the mayoralty of London she questioned him in front of an audience. This was no grilling. Could it be due to the tenderness of an old flame?

The odd thing is the media did not publish news of this adulterous affair. It bothers me not one whit if Bo Jo had a hundred affairs. But when he had a liaison with Petronella Wyatt it was front page news. This is perhaps because Miss Wyatt became pregnant with Johnson’s baby and then aborted the baby. Petronella Wyatt’s mother told the press the whole sordid tale.

People say that Alexander Boris de Pffefel Johnson is like Trump.
