(ANSA) – LONDON, JUL 28 – It will be the estate of Lord Anthony Bamford, 76-year-old British super billionaire and patron of the construction machinery giant JMB, to host the highly anticipated delayed wedding party with which Prime Minister Boris Johnson over the weekend and the first lady Carrie will take leave of power in some way and who knows for how long: after a turbulent three-year period in Downing Street destined to close prematurely obtorto collo on 5 September.
A party organized by the outgoing Tory Prime Minister and his third wife more than a year after their ‘yes’, then celebrated in a minor tone due to those Covid restrictions that both were accused of having then violated under the Partygate , one of the scandals that contributed to his downfall. Initially planned in the official country residence of the heads of government, the reception was transferred to a private mansion – as announced in recent weeks – to avoid new controversies that had already appeared in the light of the announcement of the premier’s resignation. Whose stubborn tenure in the government for the management of current affairs, pending the election of a successor to lead the majority party and therefore to the supreme office, would not have justified, according to newspapers and opponents, the further use of residence and public resources for a family event.
A knot finally untied by the availability of Bamford, now reveal the tabloids, anticipating that the party will be held precisely in the historic property of the lord-nabob, long-time financier of the Conservative Party and personal friend of Johnson, but also of the Labor predecessor Tony Blair or of the same heir to the throne Charles: property that extends for hundreds of hectares in the exclusive green of the English countryside of the Cotswolds.
