As other political representatives stood still in remembrance, Boris Johnson’s shifty eyes were wandering
As the SKWAWKBOX reported earlier, Boris Johnson made two separate blunders during today’s Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in London. First Johnson – mind seemingly wandering – set off before his turn to place a wreath at the monument; then he placed it upside down in a show of ceremonial disrespect.
The Establishment broadcasters appear to have ignored Johnson’s actions entirely – in stark contrast to the blanket coverage that would have followed had it been Corbyn.
But a sharp-eyed SKWAWKBOX reader spotted that by this point Johnson had already shown disrespect to the memory of fallen servicemen and women.
During the silence at 11am, as other political leaders stood still in remembrance, Johnson’s eyes, head and attention were wandering all over the place:
If Corbyn had done any one of the things Boris Johnson did today, the media would not stop repeating it for a week or more – every half hour at least.
But Boris Johnson’s indiscipline and disrespect has apparently prompted nothing but profound silence among broadcasters – during a period in which balanced reporting rules are supposed to apply.
