Boris Johnson had no reason to run away from Luxembourg press conference

UK prime minister Boris Johnson was shown to have run away from shadows when he walked out of a press conference with Luxembourg’s prime minister, Xavier Bettel.

We were all told he had backed out because of loud behaviour from anti-Brexit protesters – and then one of that crowd contacted LBC with the facts.

‘Catherine’, of – guess where? – Luxembourg, had this to say:

We heard on Friday he was coming to Luxembourg and we decided we would go and welcome him. As you can see, it hasn’t been taken very kindly by people who back Brexit and the right-wing press in the UK.

There was no ambush. A lot of us are in our 40s and 50s, there were some youngsters, but most people were working or at schools so they couldn’t attend the demonstration. There were about 50 of us, some say 75.

We were noisy. We were booing when he arrived and were calling him a liar – which we can back up on the basis of his record.

We asked by the press to not make any noise while Mr Johnson spoke because the press wanted to hear what he had to say. We, being reasonable people who can be reasoned with, decided that was perfectly acceptable.

When he came out, we booed him. And if he took the lectern, we would have piped down. We’re not hoodlums causing violent scuffles in the street.

He never took the stand, which I consider to be an act of cowardice.

And they were right – because that’s what it was.

    A bad case of stage fright, strangely uncharacteristic of extrovert Boris the exuberant public mega-clown.
