Boris defends himself
Some libertarian. And it doesn't even work! "People aren't drinking on the tube," Clark went on. "They're getting on the tube drunk."
This, it should be noted, took place at a meeting of the sort of people who unironically use phrases like 'political correctness gone mad' ("The Freedom Zone"), and also included an MEP sounding off about travellers ("We're not allowed to call
them gypsies any more"). So it's unlikely to represent the mainstream of Tory thinking.
But still, it makes a change to see Boris attacked from the right.
