Video: Saltburn in N Yorks gives Johnson a ‘warm’ NE welcome as cowardly PM flees

Tory leader dashes to escape

Boris Johnson made the mistake of making a public visit to Saltburn in the north-east of North Yorkshire yesterday on an attempted PR stunt. He could hardly get away fast enough:


Just as they say the Queen thinks the world smells of new paint, Boris Johnson might soon think it resounds with Labour supporters pursuing him with the chanted name of the Labour leader that Johnson dare not debate a second time after the rout he suffered in the first.

  1. I said in one of my earlier post that if anyone gets close to BoJo on one of his PR stunts they should start singing “Oh Jeremy Corbyn” to him. I am so glad to see that this trick has been tried now and I thimk the example will be replicated if this clip goes viral. So SHARE…

    People love a good joke and the joke is on our clown of a PM. This isn’t a confident look; he will not be able to take such serious humiliation on the campaign trail. Dom will have to rethink how BoJo’s handlers will need to conceal him even more now.

    1. If anyone gets close to BoJo on one of his PR stunts they should stick him one ffs!

  2. I was going to post the latest Britain Elects, with YEAH! RIGHT!

    1. Its the security certificate for the site not been updated or possibly dns service corrupted. I can get those messages trying to get in to my own router. Nothing to worry about

      1. The point is your own router isn’t a business handling confidential data, asking the public to hand over data and without encryption you could be susceptible to anything submitted being intercepted.

        Anyway I agree there’s nothing particularly bad about that BUT this is a supposed professional outlet so there’s no excuse if their website is like that is any of their data secure?

  3. Next video of him scuttling off I want to hear “Run Boris, run Boris, run, run, run…”
    Victoria Derbyshire just now to Tory Dan Poulter: “I don’t feel you’ve answered ONE question today”
