Will Boris Johnson chicken out of Andrew Neil interview?
Boris Johnson is yet to agree a date for his interview with Andrew Neil, the broadcaster revealed on Twitter.
Responding to a tweet from LBC radio host and former Conservative candidate Iain Dale, Neil said: “Since we haven’t yet got a date from Mr Johnson, I’m not sure this is helpful, Iain.”
Tough interviews with SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s have already aired on BBC at prime time.
A Labour source indicated they were unaware Johnson had not agreed to a date for interview before Neil’s tweet.
Both Nicola Sturgeon and Jeremy Corbyn faced difficult questions in the interviews with Neil, who is known for his combative style with politicians.
