Apparently, Boris the Bozo was addressing the Tory faithful somewhere, and waving a kipper around as he sought to blame the EU for kipper transportation rules from the Isle of Man which are actually set by the UK government, not the EU. The EU regulates transport of fresh fish, but Boris is blithely unaware that kippers are smoked, not fresh.
Par for the course. I’m prepare to believe that he managed to scrape a degree in classics from Oxford, and is not completely illiterate, but he’s pig-ignorant about everything else.
Waving red herrings around, for god’s sakes. That smoked him out.
