Short thread on the Prime Minister's dad - Stanley Johnson.

• Last week, Johnson Senior uploaded a pic of his visit to the @ChineseEmbinUK.

From L to R: H.E Zheng Zequang, Political Councillor Zhang Limin, OneTribe TV CEO Dale Templar, and Johnson Sr.
Note one of those who commented '👏🙌❤️' - Maxjohhsonofficial.

AKA Max Johnson, Boris's half-brother who is based in Hong Kong.

So why was Stanley Johnson in the Embassy? Because he and Max are "trekking along the Silk Road next summer"…
As we all know, the Silk Road goes through Xinjiang, a North-Western region where at least five countries have on a political level declared an active genocide to be taking place.
So will this be covered? No, according to Dale Templar (@DaleTemplar) managing director of One Tribe Talent, the production company working on the project.

"This is not a political piece." Not sure how well that will hold up.
Sidenote: here was Nigel Farage's reaction to Johnson Senior's latest Embassy visit, and a pic of Max and Stanley with former Ambo last year.

Anyway - to conclude: Johnson and Johnson will be retracing Silk Road and will make no mention of gross human rights abuses in the process.

Disappointing editorial decision making throughout. Worth keeping a v close eye on which officials they meet too.
As always - sign up to learn more.
