BOZIER’S BACK: disgraced founder returns with a sexting app

Sex pest and former Labour social media manager Luke Bozier, who was cautioned for possessing pictures of underage girls, has returned to the startup scene with a photo-sharing app called Babl.

Former political aide, disgraced startup founder and underage sex enthusiast Luke Bozier, who accepted a Police caution for possessing indecent images of underage girls, is set to launch a new photo-messaging app.

Bozier, who parted ways with former Tory MP Louise Mensch after his arrest in December 2012, has created Babl, a messaging app that allows people to send one word messages with a cap of 20 characters. Users of the smartphone program will also be able to attach a photo to their message.

When The Kernel contacted Bozier about the new app, he said: “Friends are added via a Babl PIN, like BBM.

“The app also includes comprehensive blocking and privacy controls, including three layers of encryption.”

Interestingly, unlike other networking sites, Babl “requires no personal information to use, not even an email address or phone number”.

Messages sent via the new service, which will be available from Monday in Android’s Play Store, are automatically deleted from the servers after seven days, unless they are published to a user’s profile.

Talking about the target market for the app, Bozier said: “I can see this really tapping the teen market, which is currently very lucrative and exciting”.

The idea of sending a single-word message had been the subject of a spoof video by YouTube channel Mega64. The video also spoofed video looping app Vine.

Bozier has been previously accused of soliciting underage girls under the pen name “Nicholas Smith”.

Images and quotes posted to the internet, apparently the result of unauthorised access to his email account, saw the entrepreneur allegedly boast about the size of his genitals.

The father of two allegedly solicited for sex on Craigslist, commenting, ”I like young girls. I’m hot and well endowed. Available today.”

He also reportedly boasted of his predilection for “Brazilian jailbait”.

Following our report on Bozier’s antics in December 2012, multiple British newspapers reported that Bozier had been arrested, with some sources claiming he had fled the country after splitting with his long-term partner.

It later emerged that Bozier had in fact been arrested and had accepted a police caution five months afterwards, on suspicion of viewing or possessing indecent images of children.
