Boris chews through masking tape that has silenced him for last fortnight

BORIS Johnson has finally chewed through the masking tape that has sealed his mouth in the run-up to the election.

Johnson, who was bound and gagged by fellow Tories after his last gaffe in a Sikh temple, is now audible again and may even manage a major calamity before the end of the day.

Johnson’s handler Julian Cook said: “As soon as he got the tape off he called someone a ‘Grumbulber’.”

We don’t know what it is but we can only assume it’s some old school derogatory term that hasn’t been used for a couple of centuries.”

A Tory insider said: “We just hope he doesn’t get the leg and arm-binding ropes off before tomorrow morning.”

Any time after that and he’s your problem, not ours.”
