“Is Boris Johnson honest?”

That was the question asked by journalist Michael Crick yesterday. And the person he asked was the Conservative candidate in the North Shropshire by-election.

Unfortunately we have to link to the Daily Mail so you can see his answer(s), but it is worth watching the whole of this gem of a video.

To everyone helping today’s efforts – have a great day!  And good luck to Helen Morgan.

    Why did he leave Channel 4 to go ‘the enemy’?

    Oops,should be go to!!

  • Great video, Mary. Helen Morgan is the stand out candidate here but we can feel for what the Conservative and Labour candidates in the spotlight are going through. The Romanian lady working as a leaflet deliverer in the rain and putting Reform UK literature through doors was a good find by Michael Crick.

  • What a nerve, what a cheek, what ignorance by the Tory candidate to choose to be interviewed in front of the Wilfred Owen statue. Owen was no Tory….. indeed in Dulce et Decorum Est he condemns the ‘old damned lie’.

    I loved the bit when the Tory candidate was challenged on a question of local geography and could not answer.

    Actually, David, Owen simply referred to “the Old Lie”. He didn’t need to add any emphasis.

    @Neil Hickman
    Things I didn’t expect to see in a Lib Dem article… “Actually David Owen…”

  • The Conservative candidate is a former Army Medic, so probably entitled to make common cause with Wilfred Owen. It has not done him much good though. Christine Jardine reporting that Helen Morgan will not just win, but win comfortably overturning a 23,000 majority with a massive 26% swing. Not a happy Christmas in Downing Street!

    Helen Morgan should write a book: “Boris Johnson – My Part in his Downfall”.

  • Congratulations to all those involved.
    I hope that we will now focus on life after Johnson. If he were to stay, things would be much easier at the next election.
    However with a new prime minister it will be up to us to have clear policies for the seriously damaged country that we will be faced with in the next few years.
