Boris Johnson 'put father Stanley up for knighthood in resignation honours list' | The Sun
BORIS Johnson has put his father up for a knighthood in his resignation honours list.
The former PM’s roll of 100 nominations is said to be nearly double the length of predecessors Theresa May and David Cameron, The Times reported last night.
It comes after BoJo was accused of cronyism when he nominated his brother Jo, 51, for a peerage in 2020, making him Lord Johnson of Marylebone.
Stanley Johnson, 82, would become Sir Stanley if approved by the Cabinet Office.
The nomination is likely to raise eyebrows after Stanley was accused of inappropriately touching Tory MP Caroline Nokes and a female journalist in 2021.
Ms Nokes accused him of slapping her backside “about as hard as he could” at the 2003 Tory Party conference.

Mr Johnson, an ex-Tory MEP, said he had no recollection of either incident.

A spokesman for Boris Johnson said: “We will not comment. It is not done with honours.”
The final nomination would need to by signed off by No 10.
