Wading in ‘crottes’: Do Conservative supporters approve of Boris Johnson’s opinion of the French?

Boris Johnson: Open mouth, insert… crottes.

Here’s another challenge for Tories who support Boris Johnson – it has been revealed that he called the French “turds”, in comments that the BBC censored for reasons known only to its Tory-supporting news editors.

I would certainly like to know what the Conservative candidate in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election – expenses forger Chris Davies – thinks of such behaviour by his potential new leader.

To all other voters in the B&R constituency, I’d like to ask: Wouldn’t you?

It certainly seems the election of Mr Johnson as Tory leader – and prime minister – would make an advantageous Brexit deal less likely, rather than more so… and certainly unlikely to happen by October 31 as Mr Johnson insists.

But the BBC’s decision to cut the fact that Mr Johnson said it is also highly suspicious.

It indicates that Auntie is subject to political interference. At a time when the Corporation’s impartiality is under investigation by Ofcom, that could be extremely harmful to both the BBC and the Conservative Party.

I shall certainly expect to see this mentioned in any report that Ofcom produces.

Boris Johnson branded the French “turds” in remarks that the United Kingdom government successfully persuaded the BBC to remove from a documentary about his work at the Foreign Office.

The former Foreign Secretary was filmed making the comments in relation to the French government’s Brexit position, according to a leaked government memo seen by the Daily Mail.

However, the Foreign Office successfully argued that Johnson’s comments, if aired, would do “significant damage” to Anglo-French relations and harm Brexit negotiations.

In a memo seen by the Mail, officials note that “we negotiated the removal of one potentially awkward moment where the former foreign secretary calls the French ‘turds’ so as not to distract from the rest of the programme.”
