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.

And just a few of the things people said about it.



Simply 9 times Emily Maitlis was our absolute queen
