Boris brings carroty to the situation
BORIS Johnson embarked on a bizarre speech about how carrots could benefit from Britain’s decision to leave the EU after mishearing a question from a journalist asking for clarity on Brexit.
The British foreign secretary was asked for some ‘clarity’ on Brexit at a press conference yesterday but appeared to mishear the question.
He responded: ‘The carrot?’ before the journalist responded: ‘The clarity’.
Mr Johnson then began a rambling speech about how carrots could benefit from Brexit.
‘Clarity! Okay. God. Carrot. Carrot… Well, as I say, I think you have an abundance of clarity in the prime minister’s Lancaster House speech.
‘What I’m trying to address is a feeling that I pick up, talking to people that they’re not getting the message, the positive agenda – I think there is a great positive agenda and we need to get out there and explain it.
‘And it could be good for carrots too, by the way.
‘All right, you didn’t actually mention carrots, but… we can take back control of our agricultural policies, and it may be that we can do wonderful things with, you know, our own regulations to, you know, promote organic carrots.’
Pardon? Boris Johnson misheard journalist’s question
