Johnson himself has now clarified his thoughts on the matter.
Free the paedos
Look – I’m not saying we should let every one of these rascals get away with it – far from it. All I meant is that if someone has got away with it for this long, then that’s an achievement worth recognising. These modern offenders are unseemly fellows who seem more interested in getting media attention than anything. The old school British molesters spared us from hearing about their dirty deeds, and I say hats off to them.
When the gathered journalists had picked their jaws off the floor, one of them asked if Johnson – like all Tories – simply has a vested interest in awful people not being held accountable for their crimes. He answered with a string of Johnson-isms:
Pish posh. Tally nackle. Dimpsy wimpsy.

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.
