The British Prime Minister is asked to change the number: Some messages with lobbyists are revealed
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been asked to change his phone number due to the numerous messages he receives from lobbyists. His cabinet secretary, Simon Case, says the recommendation was made last year, but Boris Johnson declined the advice. Sources from Downing Street told the Telegraph that Prime Minister Johnson's use of WhatsApp is a 'permanent problem' for some Downing Street officials about the conversations that take place.
'The problem with Boris is that he responds to everyone . '
However, it is not said that Prime Minister Johnson has accepted any of the lobbyists' demands.
Politico published an article claiming that Johnson receives private messages from James Dyson and Saudi ruler Mohammed bin Salman. Downing Street has announced that there will be an internal investigation into the leaks of private messages between Boris Johnson and billionaire Dyson where tax issues are said to have been discussed.
Johnson himself promised to fix the issue after personal lobbying by James as the latter also sought to market fans at the height of the coronavirus crisis. The investigation is expected to bring to light the talks and whether Prime Minister Johnson may have struck a deal.
