New PM continues dire start to tenure as tour continues to misfire
Boris Johnson’s woeful start to his tenure has continued, with the new PM attracting heavy criticism for refusing to answer any televised questions from journalists. Johnson has met with boos in England and Scotland, trended number one on Twitter yesterday after sneaking out of the back door from a meeting with Nicola Sturgeon in Edinburgh and was ‘welcomed’ to Wales by a pithy message in a South Wales supermarket.
Journalists noted Johnson’s cowardice on Twitter:
Johnson is now on his way to the Welsh Assembly in Cardiff for 6pm. It will be interesting to see how he is ‘greeted’ there by public and politicians.
Keeping Johnson away from microphones and cameras may have worked during his campaign to persuade a handful of Tory party members to vote for him as their new leader, but it will quickly backfire on him as PM, as Theresa May discovered to her cost.
Johnson is quickly becoming ‘MayBot2’
