At dawn with pistols

This morning’s interview conducted by Joanna Gosling on the Victoria Derbyshire program was a jewel.

Boris Johnson’s father was invited to talk about why Boris didn’t attend the Channel 4 leader’s debate, and avoids the Andrew Neil program.

Accusations were made that Boris is frightened and that he tries to avoid being interviewed.

Boris Johnson’s father said at one point, that it is no way to speak, people used to say: “See you in the morning with pistols”. Whereby Joanna Gosling replied it is 2019. Ha, ha, ha.

A viewer then asked which politicians these days ask their dad to get the coals out of the fire and speak for them.

I put a better transcript later.

But having watched a film about censorship in China yesterday, it seems quite disturbing that Boris Johnson’s father finds it amazing that people are allowed to call the Prime Minister a liar and that the Conservative Party threaten to withdraw the license of Channel 4, underlyingly.
