Scrutiny – what scrutiny! How can parachuted-in Tory candidate Jupp wish to work for this ogre?
“As an exhibition in shameless buck-passing and politicising of a tragedy, it was hard to beat Boris Johnson yesterday.
On national TV, the mask slipped and the fairly disciplined and boringly repetitive candidate we have seen for the last few weeks was revealed as the Bullingdon bully he is.
By talking over, talking back, by dodging and weaving, by deploying straight out lies, Johnson tried to pin the responsibility for the early release of the London Bridge terrorist on a Labour government of nine years ago.
When asked about his own Tory Government of the last decade, that has closed courts, stripped the prison and probation service of budgets and the wherewithal to manage released felons, he squirmed that it was not his government.
It was the Johnson version of “someone else did it and ran away”.
It wasn’t statesmanlike, it wasn’t truthful, it wasn’t even dignified,considering the father of one of the victims had explicitly made a call not to use his son’s death as an excuse for flogging stiffer sentences in an election atmosphere.
It is easy to see why this cowardly Conservative lion is running from the scrutiny of the public.
He’s also running scared from Andrew Neil, though he blustered that he would submit to an interview by the Scots media prosecutor – if only the time could be found.
It is growing increasingly clear that Johnson is unfit for the office of Prime Minister.
The more people see of him, the more obvious it becomes to voters.
He is trying to sneak back into Downing Street without scrutiny and without giving account of himself.
If the polls are to be believed, voters in Scotland have already decided to reject Boris.
Hopefully voters in England will wake up and smell the coffee before it is too late.”
