Naga Munchetty skewers Tory PM with simple question. Johnson’s answer? Because my parents gave me lots of opportunities
Boris Johnson imploded live on the BBC this morning when presenter Naga Munchetty asked him the simple question of why people should relate to him.
Johnson stammered, spluttered and flapped – and when words eventually came out, his answer why the hard-pressed millions in the UK should relate to him was because of his family privilege:
So there you have it, people. Boris Johnson thinks you should like him because his rich family was able to open doors for him.
He thinks you should relate to him because he’s had all the opportunities his class has spent years denying to millions of us – including millions of our children.
