Boris calls Labour campaign chief a ‘big girl’s blouse’

Boris Johnson is awesome:

Boris Johnson has called Labour’s election campaign chief a “big girl’s blouse” in a bizarre exchange before the BBC Question Time special in York.

Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn were set to clash in the final televised showdown of the election campaign.

But before the main event Mr Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, and Andrew Gwynne, the man in charge of Labour’s campaign, had an impromptu row live on Sky News.

Mr Johnson was giving an interview and Mr Gwynne intervened and said: “Long time no see. Why wouldn’t you go head to head with me today Boris?”

Mr Johnson said: “I’m being heckled by some Labour MP whose name… oh, Andrew Gwynne who has just joined me. Do you want to come and join me?

Come on then you big girl’s blouse. Come on then. Come on then. Come on. He wants to join me. My friend Mr Andrew Gwynne has requested a joint appearance and I am not one to try and crowd him out.”   

Mr Gwynne then joined the interview and the pair put their arms around each other’s shoulders.

Mr Johnson said: “My question to Andrew Gwynne is does he want immigration to be higher or lower as a result of Brexit?”

Mr Gwynne replied: “Well, Boris I am at a disadvantage here but you know that we want managed immigration, we are leaving the EU.”

Mr Johnson said: “I’m not hearing an answer. Are you leaving the customs union.”

Mr Gwynne said: “We are leaving the European Union.”

Boris replied: “I am asked him this last time you may remember.”

The Foreign Secretary then appeared to stumble and started to take Mr Gwynne down with him.

“I’m so sorry,” Mr Johnson said. “Go on.”

Mr Gwynne said: “Don’t be a pillock.”

If only our politicians were as much fun.
