Boris Johnson – who has frequently been accused of ‘acting’ like a cunt – is in the headlines again. The difference this time is he’s been accused of acting like a massive cunt.
Johnson is refusing to apologise for his behaviour. Not because he disagrees with the accusation. Simply because being a massive cunt is what pays the bills.
Johnson at large
Many people have reasonable arguments for disliking the burqa. Johnson’s argument was:
I dunno, they look like ninjas or some shit.
He further added:
How am I – the man behind Vote Leave – supposed to trust someone when they’re all covered up like that?
I’m not saying we should have a race war, but I am saying the words ‘race war’ and blowing this dog whistle I have quite loudly.
It’s about time we refocused on BRITISH values. If that’s not obvious enough, please understand that I’m pointing at my own pasty white skin when I say the word BRITISH.
Theresa May responded by saying:
Boris Johnson should apologise for being a massive cunt. We’ve worked very hard to make people think we’re not just a toxic shower of twats. We’ve worked less hard since getting into power, obviously, but still – Johnson’s just taking the piss.
Johnson still refused to say sorry, leaving May flapping like a stranded fish. When she asked if he was sure he didn’t want to apologise, Johnson said:
“I’ve been getting away with it for decades: why stop now?”
– Join The Canary, so we can keep holding the powerful to account.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
