Emma Barnett left it late to own Boris Johnson’s Tory MP backer Rishi Sunak and it’s glorious
Boris Johnson was due to break cover and appear in public today to launch his Tory leadership bid.
But as lots of people have been pointing out, the leading contender to be the next prime minister hasn’t been taking too many questions of late.
It was a point made by 5 Live’s Emma Barnett to Johnson backer, his fellow Tory MP Rishi Sunak, and it’s a lovely moment.
Sound up (and watch to the end).
Watch until the end… https://t.co/hTzdXY3DiD

Look, he wants to be the next PM, so why should he be expected to put himself up to public scrutiny before he get's the top job? Come on 🤔🤦♂️

Indeed. The less you see of him the less he screw it up. Good planning
