Here’s a weird one: Is Boris Johnson conducting a social media charm campaign?

I’ve received a curious message. See what you make of it:

My wife has a YouTube page that she hosts a chat group on every so often. now this is not a big page and she has less than a 1000 subscribers.

last night whilst doing her live chat a person came into her chat and asked, “what did people think of Boris Johnson”. I thought this was a very unusual question to ask, because her chat groups are not about politics. To cut a long story short, three different people joined her chat session and all three asked the same question. I did suggest this must be the Tories latest media surge to get people to like Boris.

I have enclosed a link to last nights video and you will see for yourself these people in the chat asking about Boris: –

The clip is very long (nearly 90 minutes) – but has anyone else experienced anything similar on social media?

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    Bots or kids paid to invade webchats to whip up support for Borris as the Tory party is learning there big hero is seen as a joke everywhere and the panic is setting in so spray money at the problem the Tory way…

    I haven’t watched it yet but it could just be that Boris is a talking point at the moment. Even my “key worker” on the Right Steps to Work programme the other day said that he supports Boris and thinks that he is “the man for the job” when we were having a one-to-one meeting that turned into a general chat. He was also very disparaging of Jeremy Corbyn, saying “that man” whilst shaking his head. People working at the foodbank have been discussing Boris in the tea breaks too, mostly not favourably apart from one volunteer (a Sun reader) who admirers Boris for speaking his mind! God help us.

    Strikes me the Tories are running a Cambridge Analytica-style data mining exercise. Tory thought always follows the same narrow sewage stream. They aren’t very good at original thought.
