Johnson’s crime crackdown busted: ‘This is just bluster to get headlines and get votes’

Boris Johnson: He may learn very quickly that he must think before making unsupportable announcements.

All it takes to destroy Boris Johnson’s bluster is a little in-depth questioning – as Emma Barnett proved when she destroyed Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, the deputy chair of the Commons public accounts committee on the BBC’s Newsnight yesterday (August 12).

    “Or are you a government not attached to facts?”

    These incompetent Tory politicians, who appear to think that their plummy accents make them competent, could have been discredited years ago if they had been cross examined and challenged robustly by the media.
