Peter Oborne: The scale of Boris Johnson’s lying is unprecedented (E978)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to award-winning journalist and author of ‘The Assault on Truth: Boris Johnson, Donald Trump and the Emergence of a New Moral Barbarism’, Peter Oborne. He discusses why Boris Johnson is an unprecedented liar in British political history, his belief that the ‘ends justify the means’ approach is a left-wing tradition and why it is dangerous the right are now using the alleged tactic, British involvement in the Yemen War, how the amount of what he calls ‘probable lies’ on the floor of the House of Commons spiked after Boris Johnson entered power and much more! Finally, we speak to drill artist and London mayoral candidate DrillMinister. He discusses why he believes Sadiq Khan is not fighting the mayoral election fairly, why he believes London under Sadiq Khan is a dictatorship, his own vision for a post-Covid London, his views on President Biden and Julian Assange and much more!
