The BBC agreed to cover up an outburst from Boris Johnson in which he branded the French ‘turds’ over Brexit , it has been reported.
The broadcaster was following Johnson for a documentary when he made the remark, apparently out of frustration over France refusing Britain a better exit deal.
But according to the Daily Mail, they removed it from the finished documentary at the request of the Foreign Office.
A leaked Whitehall memo allegedly said the remark becoming public would make Anglo-French relations “awkward.”
Meanwhile, Johnson is said to be preparing an ‘emergency budget’ for a no deal Brexit , including tax cuts and an overhaul of stamp duty, according to the Times.
And allies of Johnson were reported to have claimed he had offered Home Secretary Sajid Javid the job of Chancellor during a phone call at the weekend.
A spokesperson for Mr Johnson denied any Cabinet jobs had been offered.
