WATCH: Inflatable Boris Collapses During PM’s Photoshoot

Hat-tip to Mikey Smith for farcical footage of the Hartlepool inflatable Boris, which collapsed perfectly on cue during the PM’s photoshoot directly underneath it – despite managing to stay inflated all night. Critics will say it was merely mirroring its mini-me’s release of hot air during his victory speech…

Boris Declares Victory in Jersey

The PM has hailed the end of the third battle of Jersey, understatedly calling the matter “resolved” after the 100 French fishing boats ran away earlier this afternoon.

The announcement comes as No. 10 says the two Royal Navy vessels will depart the island’s waters in the coming hours, though will remain on standby in case Jersey once again finds itself in an hour of need. In the words of Maggie, just rejoice at that news, and congratulate our forces and the marines…

Poll Shows Voters Don’t Care About ‘Tory Sleaze’

New data from YouGov shows that 70% of voters haven’t been following the claims that Tory donors fronted the costs for the Downing Street refurb. Despite it being Labour’s best attack line for the past month, 9% saying they aren’t aware of the story at all, 35% are aware though haven’t been following it, and 26% say they’ve not been doing so closely. Starmer’s been insisting all week that his sleaze allegations were “breaking through”…

The same poll also found that just 32% of voters thought that Labour could form a competent government, compared to 41% who thought the Tories were currently running one. 90% of voters also think the government has had an excellent vaccine rollout – and half credit Boris for its success. It looks like voters care more about shots in their arms than sleaze in the headlines, with the Tories heading into today’s mass poll with a ten-point lead…

The British Politics Boxing Championship

Sadiq Khan is the latest politician to be filmed getting sweaty in the boxing ring. Boris brings brute power; Sadiq looks surprisingly spritely; Farage focused on the media – laying into cameras as he no doubt often wanted to do for real. Unfortunately, Sir Keir looked the weakest, albeit with the traditional inflated boxing trash-talking about punching Boris at PMQs:

Guido will leave it up to readers to decide who will be able to claim a knockout result on Thursday…

UPDATE:  Sadiq tells JoePolitics he could take Boris:

NEW: Boris’s Phone Number Finally Removed from Internet

Boris’s personal phone number has finally been removed from the internet after it was revealed last night it’s been freely available, and easily accessible, for over 15 years. Popbitch broke the story, revealing the number had been available in an online think-tank press release from Boris’s shadow education days in 2006. Scrutiny of access to the PM has been heightened since revelations both James Dyson and a Universal Credit claimant texted him to sort out policy problems. While attempts last night to call the PM resulted in a ‘user busy’ beep, this morning calls are instantly answered by a female voice saying the phone has been switched off. WhatsApps are also going undelivered…

Guido notes the Politeia press release has finally been pulled, no doubt after hours of furious calls from No. 10’s press officers. The damage will be done however, especially given last week’s reports that Boris had been told to change his ancient phone number by Simon Case on security grounds.

This morning former national security advisor Lord Ricketts warned there could be security implications should the number have fallen into the hands of hostile states, or domestic hackers, saying he would have thought a mobile number change upon becoming PM would be an “elementary security precaution these days”. At least the press release is now unavailable. As long as no one internet archived it…

Boris: “I Love John Lewis!”

As Guido fact-checked on Tuesday, the supposed No. 10 John Lewis hate in fact originated in a Tatler profile about Carrie, not from Carrie or Boris themselves. While the store is using the story as a clever advertising opportunity, the PM has finally put this specific controversy to bed, saying he loves John Lewis. On the wider flat-gate he told the pool clip “I don’t think there’s anything to see here”, which may do less to pour cold water on the story…
