Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
No itís not. The police said no offence had been committed, therefore it is a private matter.
That's not how 'public interest' works within UK law. The same would apply to much lower ranking public servants, and this is the person who is seeking the highest public office in the land.

Case in point...

The findings of his daughter's privacy court case from 2010...

Quote:
(c) The judge was entitled on the evidence before her to find that the claimant's expectation of privacy relating to her paternity was outweighed by the public interest in the father's reckless behaviour. It was noted that this was not the first time the claimant's father had fathered a child after a 'brief adulterous affair'.


The Master of the Rolls said in conclusion:-
"...The core information in this story, namely that the father had an adulterous affair with the mother, deceiving both his wife and the mother's partner and that the claimant, born about 9 months later, was likely to be the father's child, was a public interest matter which the electorate was entitled to know when considering his fitness for high public office."

A full copy of the judgement can be found below:-

And from 2013...

Quote:
Boris has a younger daughter, Stephanie, who was born in 2009.Her mother is arts advisor Helen Mcintyre who Boris had an affair with.
Boris tried to keep the affair under wraps at the time and initially denied paternity.
However, in 2013, an injunction seeking to ban reporting of her existence was quashed by the Court of Appeal.
