Emily Maitlis on the Boris Johnson flat refurbishment row went viral because she totally nails it
Boris Johnson today dismissed the row over his Downing Street refurbishment as a ‘farrago of nonsense’ after the Electoral Commission announced a full investigation into exactly who paid for what.
We mention this because Emily Maitlis’s Newnight introduction last night – about why the story ‘isn’t about furnishing, wallpaper or even John Lewis’ – went viral on Twitter.
It’s brilliantly done and well worth a minute and a bit of anyone’s time.

Maitlis is a gem
so clear, so succinct and doing the work of a journalist – telling truth to power

Brilliant intro and summary of a situation that some can dismiss as trivial but is anything but.
