Boris Johnson mocked as the Monty Python knight who ran away after ducking Luxembourg press conference

Another ambition fulfilled for Boris Johnson after the so-called prime minister was widely hailed as ‘Sir Boris’ following his unfortunate press conference no show in Luxembourg.

A knighthood? Already? Except the knight everyone was referring to was Monty Python’s ‘Sir Robin’ from Monthy Python and the Holy Grail.

You know, this one.

Those lyrics in full …

Bravely bold Sir Robin
Rode forth from Camelot
He was not afraid to die
Oh, brave Sir Robin
He was not at all afraid
To be killed in nasty ways
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin

He was not in the least bit scared
To be mashed into a pulp
Or to have his eyes gouged out
And his elbows broken
To have his kneecaps split
And his body burned away
And his limbs all hacked and mangled
Brave Sir Robin

His head smashed in
And his heart cut out
And his liver removed
And his bowels unplugged
And his nostrils raped
And his bottom burnt off
And his penis split and his…
“That’s… that’s enough music for now, lads.”
Brave Sir Robin ran away

Bravely ran away away
(I didn’t!)
When danger reared its ugly head
He bravely turned his tail and fled
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
(I didn’t!)
And gallantly he chickened out

Bravely taking to his feet
(I never did!)
He beat a very brave retreat
(All lies!)
Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin!
(I never!)
