In the wake of the police being called to the house he shares with his girlfriend, Boris Johson is on a media blitz.
Not to answer any questions about what led the police being called, mind you, but he’s willing to talk about anything else.
During an interview with TalkRadio yesterday, he was handed the simplest of questions.
‘What do you do to relax?’ is the kind of softball question politicians dream of, where they can humanise themselves in a way that is supposed to make the everyday voter forget that they’re amongst the country’s elite.
Well, Boris completely fluffed the question, rambling on inarticulately about model buses and painting people.
See for yourself:

You know the wheels have come off when the journalist who asked the question tries to lend a hand to wrap up the rambling.
Reminds me of those outtakes from Inside the Foreign Office, where he could hardly finish a sentence.
Speaking of painting buses and bollocks – whatever happened to all that Brexit money that was going to the NHS, pal?
Perhaps Boris’ ramblings are meant to distract from the police being called after his ‘row’ with Carrie Symonds, although the Johnson campaign only made things worse with a terribly staged photo to try and show the couple’s united front.
How convenient that this picture emerges in the wake of all this, right?
The Telegraph with an inside scoop:
Believed to have been taken by one of Miss Symonds’ female friends in the Sussex garden of another close confidante, the two cameraphone pictures first raised eyebrows when they appeared on a news website without any credit or fees attached on Monday morning…
As one paparazzo told The Telegraph: “The whole thing is so obviously staged. It’s real amateur hour stuff. If you wanted to do it properly you’d have used a long lens and have people in the way to make it look more authentic.
“And if it had been taken by a real photographer, of course they would have charged for it. In fact even members of the public know the papers pay for pictures these days. The fact that it was put out without anyone’s name on it, for nothing, tells you it was an inside job.”
Stunning PR fightback there, guys.
Oh, don’t ask Boris about the photos, either, because political speak 101 is in session:

Standard stuff from a Brexiteer who will do and say anything to ascend to power.
What’s the saddest part of all this? Boris will probably still go on to become British Prime Minister, because being a spoiled moron with terrible hair seems to be the political winning ticket these days.
