‘What could be more natural’ than to talk about your children – Johnson’s evasiveness exposes his nature
Boris Johnson squirmed visibly – and huffed in arrogant annoyance – when challenged by a single mother over his huge insults to working-class people.
Johnson – still running scared both of further debate with Jeremy Corbyn and of the grilling he was scheduled to undergo from the BBC’s Andrew Neil – may have expected an easy ride from the Tory-friendly LBC station and its right-wing presenter.
But a woman called in to the programme to take Johnson to task – and as Nick Ferrari read back to Johnson his astonishing insults to whole classes of people, Johnson squirmed visibly.
And huffed in annoyance at the cheek of anyone confronting him with his own behaviour:
Sky News also examined Johnson’s conduct. And in an unusually frank assessment it decided that Johnson’s evasiveness over his own children – he is believed to have at least two that are not publicly acknowledged – will be taken by UK people as a sign of his untrustworthiness.
Johnson’s shiftiness and sense of entitlement are clear in the footage – but they are only part of the picture.
That a man who has more children than he is prepared to admit should criticise working-class people and especially single mothers working hard to look after theirs is a sign of a towering arrogance and hypocrisy that nobody should even think about voting for.
