Tory leader again in trouble under scrutiny – twitches and shakes his head when confronted by his own political cowardice and dishonesty
The reasons why Boris Johnson is running scared of debating Jeremy Corbyn again and of being interviewed by BBC rottweiler Andrew Neil are becoming clearer by the minute.
Several times today the Tory leader has floundered under relatively innocuous questioning – and it happened again this morning as a Guardian journalist challenged him on the ‘cowardice’ of not including any plans in the Tories’ manifesto to tackle the Tory-created social care crisis:
Johnson babbled in response, but did not provide an explanation of why there were no manifesto plans to tackle what he admits is a huge crisis.
Yet again Johnson has shown that he simply cannot handle scrutiny. That the BBC has colluded to help him avoid the Neil interview is inexcusable – but even without that grilling it is plain he is unfit for office.
