A YouGov poll reveals 61% of the public find Boris Johnson lacks the charm of Jimmy Saville’.
A further ten percent believe him to be ‘less trustworthy than Saville’.
But the survey also shows the public think Johnson ‘clearly believes he’s telling the truth, while he’s speaking’.
And this, 85% of the public say, is as good as it gets in British politics, these days.
“It’s like Brexit,” one woman said, “you know it won’t be anything like as good as they say it will but as long as they’re telling us we’re better than the French and the Germans, you really want to vote for it.”
