And with Keir Starmer, the Labor opposition finally has a chairman who exposes Johnson's mistakes, says Birgit Maass.

As Mayor of London, Boris Johnson is said to have illegally provided grants to an ex-model years ago. According to the police, he has not committed a crime. His behavior could still have an aftermath.

The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is not being investigated by the police for abuse of office in the affair with the US businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri . This was announced by the independent police supervisory authority IOPC in London. Johnson was accused of illegally granting the ex-model grants and travel while serving as Mayor of London (2008 to 2016).

Arcuri is said to have received a total of £ 126,000 in public funding during Johnson's tenure as mayor.

Japan, show court documents.

Johnson may have had an intimate relationship with Arcuri, the regulator said. As Mayor, Johnson was also chief of police in the capital. The authority had therefore investigated the allegations.

City Parliament wants to investigate Johnson's behavior as mayor

The case could still have an aftermath. The London Assembly, a kind of city parliament, wants to take a closer look at Johnson's behavior. The IOPC agency had specifically checked whether Johnson had committed a crime. "This will not affect our investigation, which will focus on his behavior as mayor," said Len Duvall of the London Assembly.

In a BBC interview half a year ago, Arcuri let it be known that her relationship with Johnson was not purely platonic. It wasn't just a sexual intention that had sparked Johnson's interest in her. "He was very impressed with my energy, my ability to do things," said Arcuri at the time. Johnson should acknowledge the fact that she has been "part of his life" for a long time, she said.

If you're allergic, your immune system mistakes these harmless grains for a serious threat and releases histamine. That irritates your nose, causing you to sneeze the grains out, and produce mucus to flush them out.

Later she asked Johnson for an apology. She felt let down by him, she said in interviews with British television broadcaster . Johnson had "thrown them to the wolves." She was particularly hurt because the head of government is said to have ignored her attempts to contact her. She also confirmed a media report that she had saved Johnson on her cell phone under the name "Alexander the Great".
