BRITAIN’s leftie fake news media caused a stir yesterday claiming that Prime Minister Boris Johnson had been seen at an Italian airport, leading to wild rumours that the under-fire PM had ‘snook-off’ for a secret jaunt amid the COVID crisis, however… as usual with the fake news… it was a false story.
The Guardian gleefully reported that Number Ten had been forced to deny the rumours.
“According to a statement and local sources, Boris Johnson recently travelled to Perugia, in Italy, apparently on the Sept 12-13th weekend.”
The source added that Downing Street had dismissed the claims, but says in his story that “local airport sources” told the newspaper that the PM had travelled through Perugia Airport.
One source was quoted as saying that Boris arrived “on Friday 11 September at 2pm” and left the following Monday.”
For starters the story was suspect. Mr Johnson hosted a Zoom call with 256 Tory MPs on the Friday.
Number 10 denied the allegations and said that the report in the Italian press was “completely untrue.” and for good reason too.
It later turned out that it was, in fact, Tony Blair who was in Italy and not Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The PM and fiancee Carrie Symonds had also baptised their son Wilfred that weekend he was supposed to be in Italy.
