Boris Johnson appears to be getting it from all sides today as the row over his burka comments hits day four – and he graces the front page of six newspapers. So, perhaps some light relief could be found on Channel 4 news. In a discussion on right wing populism and Johnson’s comments, Labour’s Rupa Huq launched into a bizarre impersonation of the Tory MP. However, she was soon cut off by host Krishnan Guru-Murthy when she made a risque joke:
Meant to say @Channel4News "The Boris of old was mildly amusing but the loveable rogue act's worn thin and now he's dangerously pandering to the far right" but never ended sentence… Thanks @krishgm for stepping in before I tried to throw in some Latin to top it off. pic.twitter.com/zspYrcYg9b

Happily, the Spectator’s Freddy Gray was on hand to step in.
