“The Conservative Party is the oldest, greatest political party in the world. It’s a big broad church and we don’t do deals with other parties”
Boris Johnson, Andrew Marr Show
Boris Johnson was lying to Andrew Marr when he said that the Conservative Party doesn’t do deals with other parties. Marr’s failure to challenge Johnson when he was palpably lying is another example of the readiness of senior political journalists not to challenge the prime minister’s falsehoods and lies.
