“Clever”, my arse. Johnson is a cowardly, lying, sniveling POS, who as “PM” is duty-bound to answer to the public. He is no “statesman”. “Narcissistic bully” is a hat that fits Johnson far more than a Neill, whose job it is to hold public servants’ feet to the fire.
Johnson had agreed the interview. Ducking out now just highlights what a craven sh1tehouse he is and always has been. As if we needed any confirmation of that.
