On Tuesday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that there had been “no impropriety” in his relationship with the United States businesswoman, which is now subjected to a possible misconduct investigation.
On Friday, the London Government has said that it had referred PM Johnson to the UK Police watchdog for potential probe over allegations of misconduct involving Tech Entrepreneur Jennifer Arcuri, while he was the Mayor of London.
When questioned about the allegations on LBC Radio, PM Johnson continued that “I can tell you there was no impropriety as far as I’m concerned.”
Questioned why the allegations had surfaced, the UK Prime Minister has linked them to those who wanted to limit him from delivering Brexit.
PM Johnson said, “I think there’s a very good reason, and that is what I’ve been tasked, one way or the other, to get Brexit done by Oct. 31, and there are quite a lot of well-meaning, and highly intelligent people, who basically think that would be something they don’t want to see.”
“And I think that there is a concerted effort now to frustrate Brexit,” added Boris Johnson.
