‘Crazy’: Boris Johnson heckled in febrile cauldron of... an English garden center (VIDEO)

‘Crazy’: Boris Johnson heckled in febrile cauldron of... an English garden center (VIDEO)
Boris Johnson, the favorite to become Britain’s next prime minister, has been roundly mocked by members of the public in a location he probably thought he was safe from abuse as a Conservative – a garden center in Kent, England.

The Tory leadership hopeful was visiting Polhill garden center, near Sevenoaks, as part of his campaign to become Theresa May’s successor when he received some harsh words from a couple of fellow visitors. Safe to say they made it clear they weren’t his biggest fans.

Video footage shows one woman saying “Good luck with your preposterous ideas,” as she walked passed the former foreign secretary, before snapping at him: “Shame your brother’s not running.” A man is then seen branding Johnson “crazy” to his face.

Johnson can be heard chuntering “thank you,” as he ploughs on through the garden center and is finally met with a smile and a handshake from a loyal fan.

His brother Jo Johnson is the Tory MP for nearby Orpington, while the garden center’s Sevenoaks constituency is represented by fellow Conservative Sir Michael Fallon.

The incident comes after Glastonbury headliner Stormzy chanted “F**k Boris” on the main stage – though Johnson later insisted the grime artist from Croydon, south London was saying “Back Boris.”

Normally such a welcoming area for Conservatives, this has seemingly given Johnson a jab in the ribs before Tory members cast their votes in the leadership election. A new Conservative leader and de facto prime minister will be installed on July 23.
