Boris’s dad FINALLY gets the message! Stanley Johnson wears a mask on the Tube after previously being spotted in shop and airport without one

  • The PM’s father shared a photo of him with Thérèse Coffey and MP John Penrose
  • It comes after Stanley was slammed for not wearing a covering in a supermarket
  • He was also photographed pulling one down while he read in an airport last week
  • The ex-Tory MEP also faces questions after biography claims he hit PM’s mother

Stanley Johnson has finally got the message to wear a face mask as he donned one on the London Underground.

The Prime Minister’s father shared a photo of him with Work and Pensions Secretary Thérèse Coffey and MP John Penrose on his Instagram today.

He wrote: ‘Masks firmly in Place on the Jubilee Line with @theresecoffey and @JohnPenroseNews after #CPF session at the ”virtual” Conservative Party Conference.’

It comes after the I’m A Celebrity star was slammed for not wearing a face covering in a supermarket and pulling one down while he read in an airport last week.

He also faces questions after a new biography claimed he hit the PM’s mother in a domestic violence incident that broke her nose.

The 80-year-old was seen reclining on an airport chair while reading a book with his mask pulled down his face last Sunday.

He was waiting for a plane in Athens, Greece, where the law states masks have to be worn at all times in public spaces.

Stanley had spent three weeks at his Greek villa before he was spotted openly flouting the rules while waiting for an aeroplane to return him to the UK.

Airport witnesses also claimed that he had disobeyed social-distancing rules.

One told The Daily Star: ‘I first noticed Stanley because he sat too close to me at the gate so I had to shuffle along the seats to maintain social distancing – then I noticed he wasn’t wearing his mask properly.

‘I find his behaviour shocking ­given he is the father of the Prime Minister who is currently enforcing these rules.’

On Wednesday he was photographed shopping in his local newsagent without wearing any face covering.

Stanley admitted he was ‘maybe not 100 per cent up to speed’ with the rules having just returned from abroad and said he was ‘extremely sorry’.

Meanwhile a biography claimed on Saturday he had hit the PM’s mother in a domestic violence incident that left her needing hospital treatment.

It is one of a string of revelations in The Gambler, a major biography of the PM by Tom Bower, which is being serialised in The Mail on Sunday.

Mr Bower describes Stanley’s first marriage, to Boris Johnson’s mother Charlotte, as violent and unhappy, quoting her as saying: ‘He broke my nose.’

She added: ‘He made me feel like I deserved it.’ ‘I want the truth to be told.’

Family friends on Saturday confirmed the story to the Mail on Sunday, but insisted the incident had been a one-off.

Stanley was previously met with a furious backlash earlier this year after he jetted to his four-bedroom home in Greece – ignoring Foreign Office guidance at the time.

He had claimed he needed to ‘Covid proof’ his villa before the letting season began.
