A complete Muppet. And a character from Sesame Street
It quickly became clear that the usual Bozza bonhomie was not going to cut the mustard, as he waffled and blustered, being caught out misquoting sources and contradicting his earlier position on the European Single Market. He cited German finance minister Wolfgang Schauble twice, but both times Schauble did not say what Bozza suggested. Single Market access meant paying, and signing up to free movement.
Could it get worse still? It certainly could: after Marr introduced the idea of Bozza’s ambition, Johnson claimed too much time was being spent on the subject before denouncing the line of inquiry as “Cobblers”. And after all that waffling, and more looking not at his host, Marr had to call a halt. Farage would have taken a quarter of the time and made his points - valid or otherwise - far more effectively.
Like the pre-General Election chat with Mil The Younger that reduced Bozza to complaining to Marr about where he went to school, this was yet another example of why he is not fit to take over from Cameron. And nor is he fit to front the Leave campaign. He’s also a dead loss as Mayor of London. What, then, is the point of Boris Johnson?
