Boris Johnson refuses to deny he plans to build a £150,000 tree house in Checkers

Boris Johnson didn’t deny the bombshell report that he and his wife Carrie were planning to build a treetop hideout for son Wilfred – funded by the same donor tapped to refurbish his Downing Street flat

Boris Johnson has refused to deny he is planning a £150,000 tree house for his son Wilf in Checkers.

Bombshell reports said the Prime Minister and his wife Carrie planned to set up the hideout in his Grace and Favor retreat in the summer of 2020.

Two sources told the Times talks were being held about Tory donor Lord Brownlow funding the project and plans had been drawn up.

But they pulled the plug on safety advice, despite the bulletproof glass design as seen from the street.

No10 aides also warned that building a treehouse “would look awful” which costs more than a whole house in some parts of the UK.

Asked if a penny of taxpayer or donor money was spent planning a tree house in Checkers, Boris Johnson replied: “I will not comment on non-existent properties or non-existent jobs for my family.”

He said the story appears to be true and asked how voters would feel about the huge spending, adding, “I make no comment on this story or your claim that it’s true.”

Lord Brownlow was the same donor who paid a £112,000 bill for a luxurious refurbishment of the Johnsons’ Downing Street flat.

Boris Johnson later paid the money back himself after an outcry, and the Conservative Party was fined £17,800 by the Electoral Commission for “failing to fully report” the donation.

Texts then emerged showing that the Prime Minister had promised to look at the peer’s idea of ​​a “Big Exhibition 2.0” while asking for the money.
Luxurious tree houses can include zip lines, rope bridges, castle-like towers, and even hot tubs and yoga studios.

Caryn Mitten of designer Blue Forest told the Times the company’s children’s playhouses start at around £90,000 and go up to “whatever you’re willing to pay”.

An example is the “Narnia Wardrobe” with a hobbit hole door covered by fur cloaks giving way to a slide.

She added: “They are all fully fitted inside, with double glazed windows. We always add a basket and roller on the deck that you can raise and lower and put champagne in.

“It’s all about the finishing touches to make it feel special.”

Wilf was Boris Johnson’s sixth child and his first with Carrie in April 2020, weeks after fighting for his life in hospital with Covid.

He was followed last year by the couple’s daughter Romy.
