Boris Causes Minor Diplomatic Incident

Things have not gone entirely to plan on Boris’ trip to the West Bank today.

First, a Jewish Chronicle journalist covering the trip alongside British journalists was told by the Palestinians that she could not attend because she is Israeli. Nice.

Then, the Palestinian Prime Minister’s office banned British journalists from attending his meeting with the London Mayor. Palestinian journalists will be allowed to ask questions.

What next? Boris blasted those who want to boycott Israel as “corduroy-jacketed lefties”:

Comments which led to threats from Palestinians on Twitter of a mass protest and “security concerns” meaning that all Boris’ meetings in the Palestinian territories had to be cancelled. According to LBC’s Tom Swarbrick, who is on the trip, the British press pack have been holed up in their hotel and are now heading back to Jerusalem. Just one problem…

Cripes!
