Tory leader runs scared from second debate with Jeremy Corbyn – and from hustings against Labour’s Ali Milani in Uxbridge and South Ruislip seat
Boris Johnson – in spite of the shameless spin of the Establishment media – clearly knows that Jeremy Corbyn won Tuesday’s first leaders’ debate by a country mile.
So eager to avoid another drubbing is the Tory leader that he has chickened out of a planned follow-up debate on Channel 4. He does not appear to have given an official reason.
But it’s not only Labour’s leader who has Johnson running scared. Johnson has also refused to debate his Labour opponent Ali Milani at the planned hustings in the battle for the Uxbridge and South Ruislip seat Johnson needs to retain to stay in Parliament, as Milani announced this evening:
Just think: before the general election was called, Tory MPs and media pundits were telling the nation that Johnson is not the same kind of campaigner Theresa ‘Maybot’ was in 2017.
They were right: he’s proving himself to be worse.
But now he’s scared to show his face – and seems terrified to debate with any politicians of substance.
