Boris puts his foot in it (finds other foot already there)

by Stephen Tall on September 8, 2006

As editor of The Spectator, Boris Johnson published an editorial accusing Liverpudlians of wallowing in their own victim status. He agreed to visit Liverpool to demonstrate his abject contrition.

As a columnist for The Daily Torygraph, Boris Johnson wrote an article published yesterday linking Papua New Guinea to “orgies of cannibalism and chief-killing”. He has agreed to visit Papua New Guinea to demonstrate his abject contrition.

My suggestion to Boris is quite simple. Next time you decide to really piss someone off, why not choose a Caribbean island? There are worse places to spend your time being contrite, y’know.
