A LETTER complaining about Boris Johnson's "effortless superiority" from one of his teachers has re-emerged as pressure continues to mount over Downing Street parties.

The report, from classics master Martin Hammond to Stanley Johnson in 1982, criticised the 17-year-old for thinking he should be free of the "network of obligation that binds everyone".

The teacher also said Johnson "believes it is churlish of us not to regard him as an exception".

He wrote: "Boris really has adopted a disgracefully cavalier attitude to his classical studies. [He] sometimes seems affronted when criticised for what amounts to a gross failure of responsibility (and surprised at the same time that he was not appointed Captain of the school for the next half).

"I think he honestly believes that it is churlish of us not to regard him as an exception, one who should be free of the network of obligation that binds everyone else."

It comes as Tory MPs from several ranks of the party said they think there would be enough letters to trigger a leadership contest after the publication of Sue Gray's inquiry into the lockdown breaches.

It's also emerged a group of a dozen or so of the 2019 intake had met in the office of Alicia Kearns, Rutland and Melton Tory MP, to discuss his future as prime minister.

Johnson had the prestigious education at Eton after winning a scholarship.

It was also reported in The Times that the Conservative leader ignored his own isolation rules after contracting Covid-19 in March 2020.

Despite warnings from No 10 staff after developing a bad cough, Johnson reportedly continued to hold in-person briefings and had staff in to help with IT problems – even after being confined to the Chancellor’s office. He is said to have dismissed concerns by beating his chest and claiming he was “strong like bull”.
