‘Sir Beer Korma’: Johnson calls Starmer ‘sanctimonious’ over takeaway investigation

The Independent published this video item, entitled “‘Sir Beer Korma’: Johnson calls Starmer ‘sanctimonious’ over takeaway investigation” – below is their description.

Referring to Durham police’s investigation into the Labour’s Keir Starmer having food and drink with staff in lockdown, Mr Johnson said:

“After months of his frankly sanctimonious obsession… the great gaseous Zeppelin of his pomposity has been permanently punctured and irretrievably by the revelation that he is himself under investigation by the police… and yet… Sir Beer Korma is currently failing to hold himself to the same high standards that he demanded of me.”
