Hugh in vid jibe for PM

Daily Star - - NEWS -

HUGH Grant has blasted a Love Ac­tu­ally spoof cam­paign video by the Con­ser­va­tives.

The clip sees Boris John­son em­u­lat­ing a scene from the 2003 Christ­mas film.

He si­lently holds up Brexit-themed mes­sages to a woman at her front door.

Hugh, 59, who played the PM in the film, said: “I did no­tice one of the cards from the orig­i­nal film he didn’t hold up was the one say­ing, ‘Be­cause at Christ­mas you tell the truth.’

“I won­der if the spin doc­tors in the Tory Party thought that wouldn’t look too great in Boris John­son’s hands.”

A NEW Banksy mu­ral has been de­faced just hours af­ter it ap­peared on a wall.

A van­dal in a hoodie stunned on­look­ers by ask­ing: “Shall I tag it?” be­fore spray­ing red noses on the rein­deer art­work. ■

The paint­ing had ap­peared in Birmingham’s Jew­ellery Quar­ter de­pict­ing two rein­deer pulling a bench as a sleigh to high­light home­less­ness.
