Journalist Charlotte Edwardes Enacts #metoo on Johnson
Charlotte Edwardes, a columnist, wrote in The Sunday Times that Johnson had groped her at a lunch in 1999. When he was editor of The Spectator magazine.
“Under the table, I feel Johnson’s hand on my thigh. He gives it a squeeze,” Edwardes wrote.
Edwardes said that after the meal, she confided in another woman who had sat on the other side of Johnson. The other woman said Johnson had also groped her also, Edwardes said.
Asked in a television interview if he had inappropriately touched her thigh as she reported, Johnson said: “No”.
When subsequently asked if she had made up the account, he replied: “I’m just saying what I said, and I think what the public want to hear what we are doing for them and the country not Gossip.
Asked if the allegations were overshadowing the conference, he said “Not at all. I think what the public want to hear is what we’re doing to bring the country together and get on with improving their lives.”
After a denial by a Downing Street spokesman, Edwardes said on Twitter: “If the prime minister doesn’t recollect the incident then clearly I have a better memory than he does.”
Journalist Edwardes was apparently writing to mark the second anniversary of the start of the #MeToo movement. Which began in October 2017 after allegations surfaced of sexual misconduct by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The movement saw women around the world sharing stories of sexual harassment and abuse on social media using the hashtag #MeToo.
Meanwhile, London’s Labour-run local government said on Friday it had referred Johnson to a police watchdog for potential investigation. For alleged allegations of misconduct involving a U.S. businesswoman while he was mayor of London.
