The Truth about Goats
Mark O’Brien (47) was ‘spitting feathers’ at the fact that Boris Johnson had once mentioned the very thing he went on to do. ‘I’m outraged he said it. Am I annoyed that he did it? No, I’m fine with that. It’s just I can’t stand spoilers.
‘I’ve zero tolerance for foreshadowing. If someone kicks me in the balls, I’ll accept that. But I’d be furious if they bragged about it first.
‘For me, I’m just frustrated by his sloppy use of language. Piling? PILING? Was that the best synonym he could come up with? 150,000 deaths are at the very least industrial ‘stacking’. ‘Heaping’, ‘heaping’ is surely better? He’s making a mole hill out of a mountain…of corpses’.
Asked if he thought there should be repercussions for the PM, Mark replied: ‘Well, no, at least he kept his word’.
