Boris Johnson is frustrating Jeremy Hunt, by refusing to engage in a televised debate with Jeremy Hunt
And attempts for the debate to go ahead without Britain’s favourite tousled haired buffoon, soon to be leader of the Tory Party, are being hampered by a similar reaction from Boris’ empty chair.
Mr Johnson is under pressure to answer questions about a row with his partner in the early hours of Friday which led to police being called to his London home.
“What my owner gets up to in the privacy of his girlfriend’s flat, is his own business”, claimed the leather and steel, Roche Bobois, empty conference chair, “What kind of world are we living in, when the prospective Prime Minister of this country has to lower himself, by answering questions over alleged domestic abuse against a vulnerable woman and a wine related staining of a soft furnishing? ”
Mr Hunt said it was “very disrespectful” of Mr Johnson to refuse to do “any tough media interviews” and urged him to take part in a Sky News leadership debate scheduled for Tuesday
“If Jeremy Hunt thinks I’m going to turn up and have to answer lots of stupid, irrelevant questions surrounding imprisoned British citizens in Iran, my owner’s thoughts on historical child abuse investigations and how he wasted £37M of London taxpayers money, on bridge that never got built; then he’ll have to find another empty chair to debate with”, stated Empty Chair, “Brexit is what people want to talk about, not all this other, tish-tosh”
Mr Hunt said he was “not interested” in Mr Johnson’s private life but he should “man up” and debate with him on TV this week.
“Man up? Man Up?”, screamed an ever more emotional chair, “My owner is man of deep principles and steely integrity. Much loved by the five children the press are allowed to report on.”
