Johnson’s former aide said she worked as PM’s “nanny”

Former Deputy Chief of Staff to the British Prime Minister Cleo Watson said that her work with Boris Johnson on Downing Street was more like a babysitter for the prime minister.

“My role in Downing Street sounds cool, but a lot of the time I was closer to the role of a nanny for Boris,” – said Watson.


She noted that during the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, she constantly measured the temperature of the British prime minister, during his recovery from COVID-19 reminded him to drink vitamins or do exercises, often indicated the need to wash his hands, and also reminded him to refrain from inappropriate expressions.


Watson also stressed that she left Downing Street following the departure of Johnson’s former chief adviser Dominic Cummings in 2020.
