The mobile phone number of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been circulating on the internet for the last 15 years within the reach of anyone, according to several local media this Friday. Apparently the Conservative leader’s direct contact was listed at the bottom of a press release from the time Johnson was Secretary of State for Higher Education in 2006, a document that would remain available online in 2021.
Earlier this month, British government officials urged the chief executive to change his phone number, concerned about the number of people who contacted you directly. Downing Street – the prime minister’s residence and official office – has made no comment on this matter to date.
In the aforementioned statement, journalists were encouraged to contact Johnson directly either through the office of the House of Commons or by calling his mobile phone. Precisely the use of the “premier’s” telephone has also been the focus of the media recently after it was learned that he had exchanged text messages with businessman James Dyson and with the Saudi prince Mohammed Bin Salman, which were leaked to the press.
The British newspaper The Daily Telegraph indicated earlier this month that Simon Case, the chief of officials of this country, had suggested to Johnson that he change his number since the current one was too well known.
Labor MP Rachel Hopkins today pointed out to the BBC that the availability of this contact has implications for safety, while the former national security adviser Lord ricketts warned that hostile states with “sophisticated cyber capabilities” or criminal gangs could access that number.
