Piers Morgan was visibly shocked after Boris Johnson’s media minder, Robert Oxley, dropped the F-bomb live on ITV.
Commentators thought the incident had the potential to damage the Prime Minister’s election campaign until the quick thinking Oxley told Morgan he could ‘fucking have some’ before making his way to the Good Morning Britain studio.
Morgan described Oxley as ‘extremely obnoxious, very aggressive, foul mouthed and repulsive.’
The presenter then crumpled under the power of a bodyshot from Oxley before reacting to a firm uppercut by spitting his two front teeth and a chunk of lower lip at co-presenter Susannah Reid. With Morgan speadeagled on the floor, Oxley continued to lay into him with kicks to the ribs on behalf of British soldiers, phone hacking victims and vegans.
After crawling to the ITV kitchen, Morgan sought safety in the fridge but found it full to the brim with out of date items including mouldy yogurt, last years’ trifle and Boris Johnson.
The final day of campaigning began with a YouGov poll indicating Labour had closed the gap on the Conservatives.
But the sight of Piers Morgan having the living shit kicked out of him on live TV by one of the Prime Ministers’ aides has swung the pendulum back in Boris’ favour.
