Boris Johnson had several things to say about Turkey during the European Referendum – many of which weren’t true. In a development that has shocked everyone, the man who lied about Turkey has now lied about lying about Turkey.
Speaking on the matter, Johnson said:
Speak about Turkey? I’ve never even heard of Turkey. I wasn’t even aware that turkeys are a kind of monumental chicken until earlier.
When it was pointed out that he’d actually visited Turkey, he went on:
My assistant led me to believe we’d travelled to Blackpool. I did wonder why I couldn’t understand anyone, but you know what these Northerners are like.
The Northern interviewer asked for clarification on what Northerners are like, to which Johnson replied:
I couldn’t say, because I’ve never met one. I’m not even sure which bit of the country they’re from, or, indeed, what a compass is. I’m also just remembering that I don’t speak any English, and will have to vacate this verbose symposium post-haste.
At this point, Johnson slowly backed away from the podium then ran off.
Pants on fire
Watching this display, we couldn’t help but wonder: does Johnson have no shame?
Oh right, of course he doesn’t. He’s Boris fucking Johnson – the man with all the decency of an ivory arse-scratcher.

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.
