Prime Minister Boris Johnson took time out from trying to keep himself in a job today (7 November) to visit Tetley’s factory in – where else – Teesside.
As is the nature of official visits, Johnson wandered around the site for a bit hampering production, before sitting down for a refreshing cuppa with a pressganged audience of Tetley employees who were forced to laugh at his jokes (pictured above).
Pictures also unwittingly revealed the worrying absence of any beverage other than tea in the staff kitchen. And Tetley tea at that.
It has yet to be confirmed whether Johnson said he would “rather be dead in a ditch” than drink anything else.
