Greeted by a Good Morning Britain reporter, the Prime Minister retreated into a walk-in fridge where he was joining a milk round in Leeds. His minder mouthed “Oh, for fuck’s sake” and tried to keep the journalist away.
Two months ago, Boris Johnson had promised to appear on Good Morning Britain to be interviewed by Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, so the programme was trying to nail him down for his final opportunity to do so before the general election.
But while the PM quaked unstatesmanlike in the chiller, the reporter turned to the camera and noted his “frosty reception”. What a pro.
