BBC presenter Steph McGovern – who compered Boris’s Rotherham speech – slipped in a snide remark as Boris left the stage, saying:
“For the record, I am a girly swot and I’m proud of it… let’s see who’s in the job the longest”
This will be picked up…
UPDATE: McGovern apologises
At a non BBC event I was hosting today, I made a light hearted remark after the Prime Minister’s speech. Sorry that this caused offence to some. That was absolutely not my intention.
