This BBC explainer of Boris Johnson’s worst week is a simply devastating 6 minutes
This is fabulously done by the BBC’s estimable Ros Atkins, a six-minute take on Boris Johnson’s worst week which is simply devastating stuff.
It tells the story of the Owen Paterson debacle and Boris Johnson’s humiliating U-turn which has plunged his government into crisis.
Atkins tells it completely straight and it’s all the more extraordinary – and infuriating – for it.
In case you’ve missed all the twists and turns that led up to a government u-turn and to Owen Paterson’s resignation as an MP, here’s 6 minutes on a busy 24 hours. Produced by Harriet Ridley and Jack Kilbride. https://t.co/RjbD8irHGN pic.twitter.com/m4ToqxvaOi

What’s so great about this from @BBCRosAtkins is that as usual he plays it completely straight and that’s actually all that’s needed to show just how grubby and wrong this whole sorry episode was
The facts are the facts and Ros spells them out brilliantly https://t.co/tkTRdRid9z
