Hair-raising: After cancelling three appearances before the Commons liaison committee, it would seem reasonable to suggest that Mr Johnson is ‘frit’.

A senior MP has described Boris Johnson’s behaviour as “unacceptable” after he sidestepped a meeting to scrutinise his actions as prime minister – for a third time.

In a handwritten note to Commons liaison committee chair Sarah Wollaston, Mr Johnson said he needed to concentrate on delivering Brexit – which is one of the issues on which he was set to be grilled.

In her reply, Dr Wollaston said: “You are refusing to face detailed scrutiny from select committee chairs tomorrow morning.

“This is the third time that you have postponed or cancelled.”

She added: “Our role as select committee chairs is to ask you detailed questions on behalf of the public and we planned to do so on Brexit, climate change, health and social care. It is unacceptable that you are refusing to be held to account.”

This is more in the ongoing saga of Dictator Johnson, who believes he can do anything he wants without the slightest responsibility to anybody else.

Scrutiny committees have little power, and it would be impossible to unseat BoJob as a result of anything said there.

But a hearing that exposed his blundering could be a public relations disaster.

With an election looming, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that he doesn’t want to be shown up as the utter dunderhead he is.
