Responding to Boris Johnson rejecting doing an interview with Andrew Neil, Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Ed Davey said:
“Boris Johnson has bottled it. First he ducked Donald Trump now he’s avoiding Andrew Neil."
“The public will rightly see Boris Johnson as the coward he is, for failing to be held accountable in the same way as the other party leaders."
“How can we expect Johnson to stand up for the UK abroad when he’s chickening out of TV interviews at home?”
