After years of unofficially positioning himself to become PM, Boris Johnson has now launched his actual campaign. Surprisingly, it was less ape-like than we might have expected at this point. He did literally hurl his own shit, but he refrained from doing a King Kong at least.
Same shit, different day
Johnson called a press conference to announce his leadership run. When asked if he stood by his awful comments about that terrible thing which he did, he answered:
He then proceeded to shit in his own hand and launch his turds like smelly cricket balls. The press had come prepared for this, as they’d all covered Boris before. As such, the man’s political nuggets bounced harmlessly off their umbrellas.
Johnson wasn’t finished there, though. When asked to elaborate on his “total lack of a Brexit plan”, the would-be PM said:
He then spent the next five minutes wrestling with a cardboard cut-out of Jean-Claude Juncker – a pantomime that ended with him urinating on the cut-out like a mad wolf – his supporters cheering all the while.
The bottom of the barrel
As a literal ape man, Johnson knows a little something about climbing his way to the top. He hasn’t had to climb very far, of course, because this is how low the bar is set:
Beth Rigby: Why did you call Muslim women letterboxes?
Boris Johnson: British people want politicians to say what they mean.

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.
