BBC Question time was explosive this week as the panel discussed the report that Boris Johnson was giving his father a knighthood.
Journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown pointed out that “Stanley Johnson was a wife beater” – this lead to Fiona Bruce explaining that “he broke his wife’s nose, she was hospitalised. It did happen, but it was a one off”
In a new book, The Gambler, author Tom Bower describes Stanley’s marriage to Boris Johnson’s mum Charlotte as violent and unhappy.
She told the author: “He broke my nose. He made me feel like I deserved it.”
“I want the truth to be told.”
