Chris Matheson – 2021 Comments on Boris Johnson’s Remarks About Journalists

The comments made by Chris Matheson, the Shadow Media Minister, on 23 February 2021.

For Boris Johnson to say journalists are ‘always abusing people’ probably says more about his own career.

It is particularly troubling coming so soon after the Prime Minister stood by one of his ministers who attacked a journalist who was just trying to do her job.

We know from Donald Trump that these kind of assaults on the free press are dangerous and designed to stir up distrust and division.

Boris Johnson should withdraw these remarks and apologise.
