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:
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?”

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
