Boris Johnson's mum has passed away aged 79

Whatever you think of Boris, today is a day to feel sympathy for him and all the Johnson clan. His mum passed away unexpectedly and peacefully yesterday. She herself was not a Tory and was the daughter of a one-time President for the European Commission for human rights. An artist, she fought Parkinson’s disease for almost forty years.

You can’t imagine the level of hate and bile spewed out on Twitter against the PM at the loss of his mother. Sickening.

I haven’t looked on there yet Judd. You’d think people would be a bit more sensitive at a time like this. After all the whole family have differing views on politics.

Any mother that called their child de Pfeffel gets my vote.

A man only has one mother it’s sad for him.

I agree Muddy, and what an achievement, living that long with a life altering condition and remaining creative.

Non of us forget how we feel when our mum dies :two_hearts:

I’m sad for Boris…I hope he is OK.

Sad news for Boris in these worrying times.

I trust those on the forum who dislike him will have the decency to show some respect.
