Boris Johnson 'has full confidence' in Rishi Sunak but Downing Street does not deny he discussed demoting him amid claims PM 'went tonto and tried to move him to Health Secretary from Chancellor in revenge for leaked letter'

Downing Street insisted that Boris Johnson has full confidence in Chancellor Rishi Sunak today amid claims the Prime Minister discussed demoting the Chancellor. Mr Johnson reportedly 'went tonto' in front of staff at a Downing Street meeting last week about the leak of a letter from the Chancellor calling for the easing of travel restrictions ahead of the relaxations announced last Wednesday. He is said to have mulled in front of a room full of aides moving the Chancellor to Health Secretary - a demotion from one of the four great offices of state.  Allies of the Chancellor last night warned that sacking Mr Sunak would see the Prime Minister 'lose direction completely'. Today the Prime Minister's official spokesman said there were no imminent plans for a Cabinet reshuffle, saying: 'The Prime Minister and the Chancellor have always enjoyed a close and effective working relationship, and will continue to do so.'  Mr Sunak is the clear frontrunner among Tory ac

The magistrate who shacked up with a law clerk 45 years his junior has revealed why he insists on pocketing her $180,000 death pay out, claiming her mother's solicitor had been 'intimidating and threatening', provoking him to dig his heels in.  Rodney Higgins, now 71, was engulfed by controversy in 2019 after his relationship with Ashleigh Petrie, 23, became public. He also claimed his young partner had access to his bank account and had been feeding her mother money before she died. The unlikely couple had lived together for six months and were also engaged, but  Ms Petrie was tragically killed when hit by a car just weeks after  Mr Higgins popped the question. Although the magistrate nicknamed 'Rod Rocketman' was earning more than $300,000 a year in his high-flying legal profession, he received Ms Petrie's entire $180,000 superannuation and life insurance benefit despite the young woman nominating her mum as the benefactor.
