Poor Kevin Maguire! A crushing defeat by Boris Johnson leaves him no alternative but to fib like a madman in the paper he edits, the Daily Mirror! We will ignore his porkies about Boris Johnson ‘s hugely successful mayoralty, But any reaction to his lie that Sir Keir Starmer is a working class lad made good can only be hysterical laughter.

Shocked at the stressed state of Richard Ratcliffe, customers and staff in #chemistdownroad wanted to send a message to PM Boris. They are fully aware of what a difficult situation this is.
