So, we’re due to have the first December General Election since 1923. The election, which is due to take place on 12 December, has been called because Boris Johnson has failed to secure Brexit as he promised by 31 October. Who’s fault is that? If you take Johnson’s word for it, then it’s the fault of Jeremy Corbyn, who’s being blamed for everything from a cholera outbreak in London in 1843 to starting the Vietnam War. Anyone who’s followed Johnson’s career will know that, for him, the truth is a foreign country.
Today, in an unofficial start to the election campaign, Johnson popped up at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge for a presser and it didn’t go according to plan as this clip shared by Artist Taxi Driver on Twitter shows us.
Of course, this didn’t appear on any of the television news broadcasts, nor was it mentioned by any of the so-called reporters, whose job it is to report the facts. Instead, we have a news media that is in hock to this government. Instead, we were treated to the sight of Johnson in a lab coat babbling about Corbyn being responsible for his failure to ‘get Brexit done’ as he put it.
Julia Simons, the medical student who stood up to Johnson, later tweeted.
