London, June 17 (EFE). – Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson used his first column in the “Daily Mail” newspaper to explain in detail how weight loss pills made him sick, so he chose to exercise to lose weight.
Johnson agreed with the paper to publish one column a week, having resigned as MP eight days earlier following criticism from the House of Commons Privileges Committee, which concluded the politician had misled Parliament about “Partygate”, the parties at the official residence in Downing Street. during a pandemic.
In his 1,200-word journal article, the former Conservative prime minister discusses his failed experiment with appetite suppressants, although he concludes they could be used to tackle the UK’s obesity crisis.
As usual, the former leader of the Conservative Party uses quotes from Roman Emperor Julius Caesar or English playwright William Shakespeare to give color to his text.
In his column, Johnson says he noticed a colleague in government losing weight and wondered how he had achieved it.
“I immediately thought of Julius Caesar and his preference for well-fed fellows. Let me carry fat men about me,” said the Roman dictator, shortly before his assassination, shortly before his assassination.
He adds that he found out that the government partner was using a “wonderful” pill that he tried himself, but finally gave it up because he got sick, so he now turns to “exercise and willpower,” but concludes that it can be used to help others lose weight if it works for them.
After it became official on Friday that Johnson would be a Daily Mail columnist, the Parliamentary Advisory Committee on Business Appointments (ACOPA) – the regulator – suggested Johnson had committed a “breach” of parliamentary rules by reporting on the 30 minutes. Before that his signing will be announced in the tabloid.
The ministerial law states that MPs must ensure no new appointments are announced before the committee can give its advice, which is mandatory even if the MP has recently resigned, according to a spokeswoman for that committee.
The House of Commons Privileges Committee on Thursday, when publishing its report, recommended Johnson be suspended from the House of Commons for 90 days for “gate party”, although the penalty would not be applied because the politician had resigned as an MP.
Johnson later called the report “nonsense” and called Thursday a “terrible day” for democracy.
