Listen to what follows in disbelief and wonder, dear reader:

Absorb the scorn:

Simon N Ricketts tweeted: “Eddie Mair to a bumbling Boris Johnson. ‘This is not the Two Ronnies. You don’t get to answer the previous question.’”

The reason for the mockery is clear to anyone with a long enough memory: Diane Abbott was brutally abused for making mistakes about Labour’s plans to restore police numbers, and the cost of those plans, only a few weeks ago during the general election campaign.

Would the mainstream media pillory Mr Johnson in the same way? John Prescott didn’t think so (see his tweet above). Nor did others:

No, Mr Johnson probably won’t be ridiculed as much as Diane Abbott.

But he should.

He – and the Conservative government – is a national embarrassment.
