Parental origins, education and marriages

Johnson is the eldest of the four children of Stanley Johnson, a former Conservative Member of the European Parliament and employee of the European Commission and World Bank, and of his first wife, the painter Charlotte Fawcett (later Wahl),[2] the daughter of Sir James Fawcett, a barrister[3] and president of the European Commission of Human Rights.[4] .He is the elder brother of Rachel Johnson, a writer and journalist, Jo Johnson, a columnist and Associate Editor of the Financial Times, and Leo Johnson, an entrepreneur.^ Before becoming Editor of the Sunday Telegraph, she was a highly respected financial journalist (Financial Editor of The Times} and before that a very good editor of Retail Week.

On his father's side Johnson is a great-grandson of Ali Kemal Bey, a liberal Turkish journalist and the interior minister in the government of Damat Ferid Pasha, Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire, who was murdered during the Turkish War of Independence.[5] During World War I, Boris's grandfather and great aunt were recognised as British subjects and took their grandmother's maiden name of Johnson. In reference to his cosmopolitan ancestry, Johnson has described himself as a "one-man melting pot" — with a combination of Muslims, Jews and Christians comprising his great-grandparentage.[6] His father's maternal grandmother, Marie Louise de Pfeffel, was a descendant of Prince Paul of Württemberg through his relationship with a German actress. Through Prince Paul, Johnson is a descendant of King George II, and through George's great-great-great grandfather King James I a descendant of all of the previous British royal houses.
.Johnson was born in New York City,[7] but his family returned to Britain soon afterwards, as his mother had yet to take her Oxford University final exams.^ New York City .

[1] He was educated at the European School in Brussels,[8] at Ashdown House School and at Eton College, where he was a King's Scholar. He read Classics at Balliol College, Oxford, as a Brackenbury scholar and was elected President of the Oxford Union at his second attempt. .Frank Luntz[9] and Radosław Sikorski[1] have claimed Johnson touted himself as a supporter of the Social Democratic Party, then a dominant faction in the university, as a strategy to win the Union presidency, although Johnson denies that he was more than the SDP's preferred candidate.^ Read more from Iain Dale Boris Johnson brings in the sleazebusters In January I spoke at a London Chambers of Commerce panel session titled Can Boris Win?

In 1987 he married Allegra Mostyn-Owen but the marriage was dissolved in 1993.[11] Later that year, he married Marina Wheeler, a barrister, the daughter of journalist and broadcaster Sir Charles Wheeler and his Sikh Indian wife, Dip Singh.[12] The Wheeler and Johnson families have known each other for decades,[1] and Marina Wheeler was at the European School in Brussels at the same time as her future husband. They have two sons—Milo Arthur (born 1995) and Theodore Apollo (born 1999)—and two daughters—Lara Lettice (born 1993) and Cassia Peaches (born 1997).[13] Boris Johnson and his family currently live in Holloway, North London. Boris's current stepmother, Jenny, the second wife of his father Stanley, is also the stepdaughter of Edward Sieff, the former chairman of Marks & Spencer.[14]

Journalism and history

Upon graduating from Oxford, he only spent a week as a management consultant at L.E.K. Consulting:
Try as I might, I could not look at an overhead projection of a growth profit matrix, and stay conscious.
He then became a trainee reporter for The Times. Within a year he was sacked for falsifying a quotation from his godfather, Colin Lucas, later vice-chancellor of Oxford University.[15] After a short time as a writer for the Wolverhampton Express & Star, he joined The Daily Telegraph in 1987 as leader and feature writer, and from 1989 to 1994 was the paper's European Community correspondent. He served as assistant editor from 1994 to 1999. In 1995 a recording of a telephone conversation was made public revealing a plot by a friend to physically assault a News of the World journalist. but he retained his job at the Telegraph. .There was no evidence that Boris intended to provide information that would facilitate the assault of the journalist, even though he promised under pressure to provide this information.^ The filming stopped so there is no more direct video evidence, but eyewitnesses said on camera later that she was manhandled to the ground, cuffed and taken to the Station.

His association with The Spectator began as political columnist from 1994 to 1995. In 1999 he became editor of The Spectator, where he stayed until December 2005 upon being appointed Shadow Minister for Higher Education.
He wrote an autobiographical account of his experience of the 2001 election campaign Friends, Voters, Countrymen: Jottings on the Stump. He is also author of three collections of journalism, Johnson's Column, Lend Me Your Ears and Have I Got Views For You. His comic first novel Seventy-Two Virgins was published in 2004,[16] and his next book will be The New British Revolution, though he has put publication on hold until after the London Mayoral election.[17] He was nominated in 2004 for a British Academy Television Award, and has attracted several unofficial fan clubs and sites. His official website and blog started in September, 2004.
Johnson is a popular historian and his first documentary series, The Dream of Rome, comparing the Roman Empire and the modern-day European Union, was broadcast in 2006.
After being elected mayor, he announced that he would be resuming his weekly column for The Daily Telegraph. The Guardian reported that he had agreed a £250,000 annual salary for doing so. The report added that he will donate £25,000 each towards two scholarships: one for students of journalism, and the other for the teaching of classics.[18]

Political career

After having been defeated in Clwyd South in the 1997 general election, Johnson was elected MP for Henley, succeeding Michael Heseltine, in the 2001 General Election. He described this election in his 2002 book, Friends, Voters, Countrymen. In 2004 he was appointed to the front bench as Shadow Minister for the Arts in a small reshuffle resulting from the resignation of the Shadow Home Affairs Spokesman, Nick Hawkins. He was also from November 2003 vice-chairman of the Conservative Party, with an emphasis on campaigning.[19]
.Johnson was dismissed from these high-profile posts in November, 2004 over accusations that he lied to Michael Howard about a four-year extramarital affair with Petronella Wyatt, The Spectator's New York correspondent and former deputy editor.^ As a society we did move from status to contract over the course of about 300 years but the high watermark of contract was mid-twentieth century.

.Johnson derided these allegations as "an inverted pyramid of piffle", but Howard sacked Johnson because he believed press reports showed Johnson had lied, rather than for the affair itself.^ January 04, 2010 at 11:17 AM Report this comment To Jack Roob: I'd rather read Boris than your sad invective.

Higher education

He was appointed Shadow Minister for Higher Education on 9 December 2005 by new Conservative Leader David Cameron, and resigned as editor of The Spectator soon afterwards. On 2 April 2006 it was alleged in the News of the World that Johnson had had another extramarital affair, this time with Times Higher Education Supplement journalist Anna Fazackerley. The video[21] shows him emerging from her flat and waving to her in a taxi. .Subsequently, in a speech at the University of Exeter concerning student finance, he allegedly made comical remarks about his gratitude to the audience for not "raising other issues" during the talk, which may have been a reference to the allegations.^ This is about *respect* - and those who project themselves as having affinity with a community where there is much talk about 'dissing' as in disrespecting other people.
  • A simple way to keep law and order – make everyone kiss and cuddle - Telegraph 10 February 2010 12:33 UTC news.google.com [Source type: General]

A report in The Times[22] stated that Cameron regarded the possible affair as a private matter, and that Johnson would not lose his job over it.
.Johnson stood for the February 2006 election of Rector of the University of Edinburgh, after receiving seven times more nominations than needed to stand.^ Been in that situation more times than I care to remember.
  • A simple way to keep law and order – make everyone kiss and cuddle - Telegraph 10 February 2010 12:33 UTC news.google.com [Source type: General]

[23] His presence as candidate caused an unprecedented turn-out and sparked an "Anyone but Boris" campaign.[24] Protests included having drinks thrown over him at his first of two visits to the student body.[23][25] Johnson eventually polled third of four, with 2,123 votes, behind 3,052 votes for journalist Magnus Linklater and 3,597 for Green Party MSP Mark Ballard.[24] Johnson was quoted as having been pleased to mobilise the student body, but disappointed at the personal campaign against him as an "English top-up fee merchant".[24]
.In September 2006, his image was used in 'Boris needs you' and 'I Love Boris' material to promote the Conservative Party's image during Freshers' Week in universities.^ Harbinger on January 04, 2010 at 10:53 AM Report this comment It's the family therapists you need to introduce this to Boris.

2008 London Mayoral election

After several days of speculation, Johnson announced he was a potential Conservative candidate for the London mayoral election in 2008 on 16 July 2007.[27] Reported as saying[27]
The opportunity is too great, and the prize too wonderful to miss ... the chance to represent London and speak for Londoners
he resigned as Shadow Minister for Higher Education. He was confirmed as the Conservative candidate on 27 September 2007 after gaining 75% of the vote in a public London-wide primary.[28]
The Conservative Party hired Australian election strategist Lynton Crosby to run Johnson's campaign. .Aware of Johnson's propensity for committing gaffes, Crosby prevented him from holding interviews with the print and broadcast media in favour of radio talk shows and daytime television which asked "easier" questions.^ But, to forgive, one has to ask, show remorse or penitence and back it up with commitment not to offend again.
  • A simple way to keep law and order – make everyone kiss and cuddle - Telegraph 10 February 2010 12:33 UTC news.google.com [Source type: General]

[29][30] Crosby also made Johnson tell fewer jokes and have a simpler haircut to help make him appear more serious.[29] The campaign targeted Conservative-leaning suburbs in outer London to capitalise on a sense of detachment with the Livingstone administration which had focused on inner London areas.[30]
His campaign was launched in Edmonton in March 2008 when David Cameron, introducing Johnson, commented "I don't always agree with him, but I respect the fact that he's absolutely his own man."[31]
Johnson pledged to introduce new Routemaster-derived buses to replace the city's fleet of articulated buses if elected Mayor.
His manifesto was published in sections; they were, together with quotes or general content:
Accountability
.2008 manifesto: "Making London’s Mayor Accountable"...^ "Kiss and make up in front of the London Mayor we saw on TV at the Beijing Olympics you fools", the Arabic probably went.

[32]
I believe Londoners should have a greater say on how their city is run, more information on how decisions are made and details on how City Hall money is spent.
Ken Livingstone presides over a budget of more than £10billion and demands £311 per year from the average taxpaying household in London. Yet Londoners have little confidence in the Mayor spending their money with care and prudence.
Business
...it is essential that the Mayor takes a positive lead and ensures the best possible conditions for London businesses – large and small.
2008 manifesto: "Backing London Business"...[33]
Environment
2008 manifesto: "Protecting Our Local Environment"...[34]
...I will work to make London a pleasant and safe place to live, by nurturing and protecting the public spaces that bind us all together.
Crime
2008 manifesto: "Making London Safer"'...[35]
I will: Provide strong leadership,... Make buses, trains and stations safer,... Tackle knife and gun crimes,... Help the ignored victims of sexual violence,... .Demand a police service accountable to you.^ You can only imagine his feeling about black people now and also the inadequate police ‘service’.
  • A simple way to keep law and order – make everyone kiss and cuddle - Telegraph 10 February 2010 12:33 UTC news.google.com [Source type: General]

He included a pledge to remove red tape in the Metropolitan Police Service.
Housing
2008 manifesto: "Building A Better London"...[36]
I will: Help More Londoners Afford Their Own Home,... Design Developments To Combat Crime,... Protect Green Spaces and Historic Views.
Seniors
2008 manifesto: "Appreciating Our Seniors"...[37]
Under my Mayoralty I am certain that London will be judged as a civilised place; a city that cares for and acknowledges its older citizens.
Transport
2008 manifesto: "Getting Londoners Moving"...[38]
The Mayor’s biggest area of responsibility is transport, and I intend to put the commuter first by introducing policies that will first and foremost make journeys faster and more reliable.
... Our challenge... is to make our transport system better to improve our quality of life.
He promised:
.
  • better orbital public transport: "One of the limitations of the public transport network in outer London is the lack of direct and convenient orbital routes."
  • cutting crime by increasing police presence on public transport
  • to scrap controversial articulated "bendy" buses and replace them with modern designs of the iconic Routemaster bus.^ And by the way, the ever-presence of police on the streets is one way to ensure a law-abiding population, as BJ has found.

Johnson's candidature received opposition from across the political spectrum. .Right-wing journalists Simon Heffer and Peregrine Worsthorne described Johnson as not being serious enough to hold the role of Mayor of London,[40] Worsthorne noting that the "harder he tried [to be serious], the more insincere, incoherent, evasive and even puerile he looked and sounded".[41] Ken Livingstone described Johnson as "a joke".[42] Left of centre commentators claimed that Johnson was not suited to be Mayor of such an ethnically diverse city because he had previously made comments which they interpreted as racist,[43] a situation exacerbated when the British National Party urged its supporters to give their second preference votes to Johnson.^ Login or register to post comments Re: Mayor of London Links Video Games to Wave of Stabbings Submitted by Chuma - June 20, 2008 at 6:54 pm -0500 No.  They really really aren't.  Most give at least a hint of competance or rationality.  Boris is a useless waste of space, more suited to appearances on Have I Got News For You.

[44] Johnson denied allegations of racism and stated that he did not want any BNP supporters to vote for him.
Johnson's candidacy was the subject of international interest. .Germany's Der Spiegel and America's National Public Radio reported the race, both quoting Johnson as saying "if you vote for the Conservatives, your wife will get bigger breasts, and your chances of driving a BMW M3 will increase",[45][46] without however giving a source for this; the BBC has quoted the same statement by him from his 2004 campaign trail.^ I've written you separately about rallying expat votes, with which I hope you can give a helping hand - and attached for your information my letter extremely critical of the BBC, and all their hugely over paid, totally politically biased Panjandrums.

Though most pollsters—with the exception of YouGov which accurately forecast the final result—predicted either a close result or narrow win for Livingstone,[48] it was announced on 2 May 2008 Johnson had garnered a total of 1,168,738 first and second preference votes to Livingstone's 1,028,966.[49] Johnson benefited from a large voter turnout in Conservative strongholds, in particular Bexley and Bromley where he amassed a majority of over 80,000 over Livingstone.[50] Following his victory, he praised Livingstone as a "very considerable public servant" and added that he hoped to "discover a way in which the mayoralty can continue to benefit from your transparent love of London".[49] He also announced that, as a result of his victory, he would resign as Member of Parliament for Henley.[51]
He celebrated his election victory at Altitude 360 located in Millbank Tower. It was here that David Cameron and all his supporters gathered to congratulate him on becoming Mayor of London.

Staff appointments

.Johnson assumed control at City Hall on 4 May 2008. He appointed Richard Barnes as his Deputy Mayor on 6 May 2008, as well as appointing the following to newly devolved offices; Ian Clement as Deputy Mayor for Government Relations, Kit Malthouse as Deputy Mayor for Policing and Ray Lewis as Deputy Mayor for Young People.^ Morocco is still a police state run by a tiny minority of people connected with the royal household as a result of which young Moroccans emigrate en masse.

The Mayor also appointed Munira Mirza as his cultural adviser and Nick Boles, the founder of Policy Exchange, as Chief of Staff.[53] Sir Simon Milton has become Senior Adviser for Planning.[52]. He appointed Anthony Browne as Policy Director.
.Political opponents questioned Johnson's judgement when Ray Lewis resigned on 4 July 2008, shortly after taking up his post, following allegations of financial misconduct during his prior career as a Church of England priest and inappropriate behaviour in respect of a false claim to have been appointed as a magistrate.^ Your proposal, Boris, for conciliation in place of courts in minor cases is a good one and should be followed up by policy makers of all political parties.

[54] Hazel Blears, the UK Communities Secretary, said that "People across the country will note that after just two months, the new Tory administration in London is in complete disarray. Londoners need to know what Boris knew and why the situation has changed."[55] Kit Malthouse however, London's Deputy Mayor for Policing, defended Lewis and said that he had "dedicated himself to saving young lives in London", regarding his policies on tackling knife crime, and called the Labour Party "ungracious" and accused them of "dancing on his political grave".[56] Johnson himself said that he was "misled" by Lewis.[57] On 22 June 2009, Ian Clement resigned after breaking rules by paying for personal items using a corporate credit card.

Alcohol use ban on public transport

.On 7 May 2008, Johnson announced plans to ban the consumption of alcohol on the London transport network, effective from 1 June,[58] a policy described by Jeroen Weimar, Transport for London's director of transport policing and enforcement, as reasonable, saying people should be more considerate on the trains.^ June 20, 2008 MCV reports that London Mayor Boris Johnson has mentioned violent video games in relation to a wave of knife crime plaguing Great Britain.

On the final evening on which alcohol was to be permitted on London transport, thousands of drinkers descended on the Underground system to mark the event. Six London Underground stations were closed as trouble began, and a number of staff and police were assaulted. Police made 17 arrests as several trains were damaged and withdrawn from service.[59]

Forensic Audit Panel

The formation of the Forensic Audit Panel was announced on 8 May 2008. The Panel is tasked with monitoring and investigating financial management at the London Development Agency and the Greater London Authority.[60] It is headed by Patience Wheatcroft, former editor of The Sunday Telegraph. Previously the GLA investigated allegations of financial mismanagement itself.
.Johnson's announcement was criticised by Labour for the perceived politicisation of this nominally independent panel, who asked if the appointment of these key Johnson allies to the panel - "to dig dirt on Ken Livingstone" - was "an appropriate use of public funds".[61] Wheatcroft is married to a Conservative councilor[62] and three of the four remaining panel members also have close links to the Conservatives: Stephen Greenhalgh (Conservative Leader of Hammersmith and Fulham Council), Patrick Frederick (Chairman of Conservative Business Relations for South East England and Southern London) and Edward Lister (Conservative Leader of Wandsworth Council).^ I live in North London, and, quite frankly, Mr Johnson, if you want to stop the wave of stabbings on the streets then give these kids a future.

The panel reported in July 2008.[63] Its findings included that it had "identified failings in the LDA’s leadership, governance and basic controls which have led to our overall conclusion that the former LDA board was ineffective" and also raised a number of concerns about the value for money achieved on projects that the LDA had funded. However, on the central allegations that the previous administration had misused their powers, the Panel found "their attempts to influence LDA project decisions did not breach any rules or protocols".

2008 Olympics

.Johnson was present at the closing ceremony of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing as London's representative to receive the Olympic flag from Guo Jinlong, the Mayor of Beijing in order to announce formally London as Olympic host city.^ "Kiss and make up in front of the London Mayor we saw on TV at the Beijing Olympics you fools", the Arabic probably went.

At the subsequent handover party held at London House in Beijing, he gave a speech in which he declared 'ping pong is coming home'.[64]

U.S. presidential election

.In August 2008, Johnson broke from the traditional procedure of those in public office not publicly commenting on other nations' elections when he openly endorsed then-Senator Barack Obama for the presidency of the United States.^ Morocco still has its annexationist claims--a dispute even former US secretary of state James Baker mediated as an envoy of the United Nations.

Resignation of Sir Ian Blair

In October 2008, Boris Johnson forced the resignation of the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis Ian Blair, hours after taking control of London’s police authority. Those in support of this measure claimed that Blair's handling of certain events, such as the death of Jean-Charles de Menezes,bonus payments and bias in favour of a piece of Government legislation left his position untenable, but critics have argued that the forced resignation makes the role of the commissioner more political.[68][69]

Expenses controversy

.In June 2009, it was revealed that Mayoral expenditure on taxi fares had risen by 540% under Boris Johnson's administration, from £729 in 2007/08 to £4,698 in 2008/09 [70].^ June 20, 2008 MCV reports that London Mayor Boris Johnson has mentioned violent video games in relation to a wave of knife crime plaguing Great Britain.

.Several expense claims for very short taxi journeys were submitted by the Mayor, many which included charges for taxis to wait several hours for the Mayor to use them with the meter running (for example, a return journey from City Hall to Elephant and Castle - a journey of 3 miles - which cost £99.50).^ Login or register to post comments Re: Mayor of London Links Video Games to Wave of Stabbings Submitted by Cheater87 - June 20, 2008 at 8:54 pm -0500 How many games have you using knifes???

.There are questions about whether some of this expenditure was allowed under GLA rules, which state taxis should only be used when there is no feasible public transport alternative and which ban paying taxis to wait more than 20 minutes.^ Note: Individual schools may enter more than one entrepreneurial program but each program must be associated with only one school.
