Boris Johnson takes flight with donor who branded Theresa May a 'mad cow'
Boris Johnson accepted a helicopter ride from a Tory donor who described Theresa May as a "mad cow".
Perhaps the hors d'oeuvres weren't up to the wealthy donors usual standards given that only three days after the event he tweeted: "Tory MP's & Minister (sic) are bloody cowards. Your actions will be dealt with by your members who do your daily running around. You've let this mad cow with her advisors pull your pants down. You deserve to lose by a very clever Jeremy Corbyn. Amateurs...."
But it was not the first time the Tory donor had taken to social media to vent his fury at those working in SE1 - only a month earlier he had branded Theresa May's closest adviser, Gavin Barwell, a "total shit". Adding: "Your days are number."
In a separate tweet he gave Nick Boles the coveted title of the "biggest shit in Westminster". Also accusing the Common Market 2.0 architect of being a "childish tit".
Incredibly, the Tory donor seems to be more infuriated with the actions of his own party than those of the opposition, but he did find the time in February to call Jeremy Corbyn a "twat".
"I don't normally use horrible words on Corbyn," he confessed. "However.....Twat!! that's why he won't ever get the keys to No10. Always supports people trying to blow this country up."
At least Mr Johnson can take solace that he is no longer responsible for maintaining the entente cordial considering the likely impact of French President Emmanuel Macron discovering the top Tory had shared a dawn ride with a man who'd described him as a "little granny loving midget".
Getting through the morning broadcast round without raising an unplanned talking point does not get any easier after leaving office, David Cameron has revealed.
The Conservatives' bitter feud over Brexit has, it's fair to say, ramped up a notch this week with the publication of former Prime Minister David Cameron's memoirs.
Messages supporting Boris Johnson have begun to flood Facebook and Twitter in the past 24-hours. But who or what is behind the surge?
The bemused Labour leader was offered a size-20 floral blouse after he refused to back the PM's request for a general election.
