Boris trips up

If you missed Boris Johnson get a good grilling on the Andy Marr show, you can still catch it here. ‘Bicycle crash’ TV it might be but it shows how even a savvy media operator like Johnson can fall foul of a savage inquisition.

Mind you, if Johnson had simply admitted he made up the quote (he was young and paid the price), his affair (he’s a politician) and agreeing to let a friend have the contact details of a journalist who the friend wanted to ‘visit’ (nothing happened), then he would have perhaps looked less foolish than he ultimately did.

A suprising lack of candour from the man who normally plays the media game with far more assurance.
