Today, in the English Daily Mail (which, note, is called the Daily Mail, like it’s the proper Daily Mail, you know), this was the headline:
Meanwhile, in Scotland, where there is a general election in a few weeks, and where the Daily Mail, which oddly, becomes the Scottish Daily Mail, hates the SNP and Nicola Sturgeon even more than they apparently hate Boris Johnson, this is what they have to say:
And Boris and his incendiary comments are relegated to a small column at the bottom right hand page.
From what I read, the comments Johnson allegedly made have been verified to journalists like Robert Peston and Laura Kuenssberg, by several people who heard him sound off in temper.
Mr Gove has said that he was there and never heard the prime minister say any such thing… Not even a sniff of it… (He may have added that his wife thinks she will change the décor in number 10 that Carrie has overseen) …or maybe that is just a malicious rumour passed on to Munguin by a disaffected Chancellor, whose own wife may have been seen purchasing a tape measure.
