Can the forward march of Boris Johnson be halted? Eddie Mair seems to think so. His admirers at SKY News, BBC etc will try their damnedest to help him recover, by burying footage of this interview, and help him come up with excuses for things like to, at the very least, turn a blind eye to the planning for a violent assault. I had heard of this before, but couldn’t understand why journalists never asked Boris about that. After this interview on the Marr Show, Eddie Mair is a hero on twitter, with English people saying they’ll let Scotland have its independence in return for letting them keep Eddie Mair. Eddie is a wonderful broadcaster, but these facts were in the public arena before. Why Gavin Esler, Jon Sopel, Adam Boulton, Cathy Newman never ever remind their viewers about Boris Johnson’s history is not in the public arena. Maybe it has something to do with their right-wing prejudices.
