Carrie Symonds' 'could bin No10 Grenfell disc with Stormzy signature'
How Carrie Symonds is bringing her ‘incredible taste’ to the inside of Downing Street – starting with getting rid of Theresa May’s signed Stormzy album, reveals Tory campaigner and PM’s friend Nimko Ali
- Ali said charity disk could be on hit list now they can ‘finally unpack their boxes’
- Grime star Stormzy has made repeated attacks on Mr Johnson and his politics
- He led 100,000-strong chant of ‘F*** Boris’ as he headlined Glastonbury last year
A Tory activist friend of Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds opened the door on their life in Downing Street today, suggesting they could take down an album signed by Stormzy after he attacked the PM’s politics.
Nimko Ali, 36, a campaigner against female genital mutilation, said that the Grenfell disaster charity disk given to previous leader Theresa May could be on Ms Symonds’ hit list now they can ‘finally unpack their boxes’.
Stormzy, real name Michael Owuo Jr, has made repeated attacks on Mr Johnson, including leading a chant of ‘F*** Boris’ as he headlined the Glastonbury Festival last year.
And after Mr Johnson’s election win in December he accused the PM of spurring on racists in the UK.
In a wide-ranging interview with the Evening Standard Ms Ali she hailed the ‘incredible taste’ of Mr Johnson’s partner.
‘Her flat in Camberwell was impeccable,’ she said.
‘She has an eye for style and detail and makes you feel welcome, putting up photos that remind you of times together.
‘Theresa May had a Grenfell record on the wall signed by Stormzy. I’m not sure if that will still be there.
‘I don’t think much else will change.’

Croydon-born Stormzy, 26, was among stars who collaborated on a cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water in 2017 to raise funded for survivors of the tragedy in West London that left 72 people dead.
He became the first black British solo artist to headline the famous festival last year.
During his act he sang ‘Vossi Bop’, which includes the lyrics: ‘I’ll never die, I’m Chuck Norris.’
He then held out his microphone and the 100,000 crowd chanted the rest of the words: ‘F**k the government and f**k Boris.’
Ms Ali is close to Ms Symonds and the pair have visited Somaliland, where she was born.
They were also pictured together during the election campaign before Mr Johnson’s 80-seat win.
Ms Ali is a former Women’s Equality Party candidate turned Tory supporter. But she admitted to the Standard that she had tactically voted Green in December, despite her closeness to Mr Johnson.
‘He knows. I’ve told people in the Conservative Party and no one called me a traitor as they would’ve on the Left,’ she said.
‘I voted Green because I wanted to take away from a Labour majority.’
