THE G7 meeting in Italy has rejected Boris Johnson’s plan to sneak into the tuck shop late at night and make off with sweets, it has emerged.
The foreign secretary interrupted discussions of the humanitarian crisis in Syria to outline the sweet-theft scheme, insisting it would be a ‘wizard prang’.
Italian foreign minister Angelino Alfano said: “We rejected the proposal to ‘pinch loads of tuck and scoff it in the dorm’ on the grounds that it was not G7 business and extremely juvenile.
“I don’t even think there’s a ‘tuck shop’ in this high-end hotel. There’s a small convenience store in the lobby, but it’s not really appropriate for government ministers to break in and commit petty theft.
“Also everyone here has a generous expense account, so we can easily buy as many sweets as we like, even a whole jar of fizzbombs.”
