Must-watch: Johnson forgets he’s on camera and signals angrily for help escaping awkward questions

Cowardly PM gives the game away

Boris Johnson has been running scared from any difficult media appearances – cancelling debates with Jeremy Corbyn after being outclassed twice by the Labour leader and bailing out of a tough interview with the BBC’s Andrew Neil.

It seems he felt he was on safe territory appearing on Tory-friendly LBC radio this morning – but quickly came off the rails when challenged by a single mother over his arrogant insults to working-class people.

That call clearly rattled the cowardly Tory leader, because when a further tough question came in Johnson went to pieces – and clearly forgot that, even though it was a radio interview, LBC live-streams its programmes.

Johnson can clearly be seen signally angrily at host Nick Ferrari to cut the call and move onto easier topics:

Johnson’s fury that anyone should dare challenge him is clear. No wonder he daren’t face an interview with BBC rottweiler Neil.

But the appropriate question is this: how dare a man with no morals, no character, no backbone and no self-control ask the country to put him back in Downing Street?

Update: Johnson has claimed he was mimicking Nick Ferrari. His face shows it wasn’t in any sense of fun – and his lack of self-control is clear. His explanation doesn’t make it any better.
