Tory leader’s contortions during Marr interview
Police have submitted a file to the Crown Prosecution Service concerning the Russian links of Boris Johnson and Michael Gove. The Tories have refused to release an intelligence services report on Russian activities until after the general election even though the intelligence services say there is no reason to delay, leading to justified questions about what they want to keep hidden.
Last year, Johnson squirmed and floundered when pressed by Andrew Marr on his acceptance of a £160,000 donation to play tennis with the wife of a Russian oligarch closely linked to Vladimir Putin – a video that went viral at the time and deserves to do so again:
The Tories have accepted enormous sums – many times more than £160,000 – from Russian donors and have never satisfactorily explained what those donors receive or expect in return.
