Boris Johnson has refused to commit to an interview with the BBC’s Andrew Neil despite Jeremy Corbyn being grilled by the veteran journalist earlier this week. The Prime Minister insisted he had “barely stopped being interviewed” since calling the General Election and said that he would continue to submit to “all kinds of inquisitions and interrogations” until polling day. In an interview with the PA news agency, Mr Johnson was asked repeatedly whether he would be interviewed by Mr Neil. He replied: “Here I am being interviewed by you, I don’t think I have barely stopped being interviewed by people since the election began and will continue to submit to all kinds of inquisitions and interrogations until polling day.” Pressed again, Mr Johnson said: “I’m in discussion with all sorts of people about all sorts of interviews and look forward to doing many, many more.” Asked once more, he replied: “I’m going to do many, many interviews over the course of the next few days and I’m sure that people are having all sorts of conversations right now about who I’m going to be talking to when and where and I look forward to it very much.” Do you think Mr Johnson should agree to an interview with Andrew Neil?
