As an attack, it was very well orchestrated and deadly with an added theatrical effect that had audiences gripped with anticipation.
“To see old Boris Johnson squirming like a mangy dog on the sofa was thouroughly unpleasant to watch, that is unless you are a Labour-ite socialist oik,” a friend of Boris told the Telegraph last night.
The BBC, naturally a champion of Labour’s manifesto, showed its audiences what it thinks of the Tories, but what if a Tory was actually behind the kicking of Boris?
“No doubt this has the paw prints of the Cameron corner all over it. It was a fresh gutting there on the sofa of a fellow Bullingdon boy, but it may have backfired because it seems that Boris is even more likeable now and a serious contender to the Conservative throne.” a Tory insider revealed.
