Miriam Margolyes says only thing ‘bumbling s**t’ Boris Johnson is good at is adultery
The Call The Midwife star has never been afraid to speak her mind, and has more than a few bad words to say about what a terrible job our Prime Minister is doing
Call The Midwife star Miriam Margolyes has delivered the mother of all rollickings to Boris Johnson – branding him an “incompetent s**t”.
Miriam, 79, suggests “bumbling” Boris is a shadow of formidable Tory leader Margaret Thatcher.
And she takes a swipe at Dominic Cummings, who drove 260 miles during lockdown.
She says: “Boris Johnson couldn’t direct s**t into a paper bag. He is completely incompetent.
“He’s got that malevolent little squit Dominic Cummings to make his thoughts clear for him.
“He was an incompetent mayor and he’s an incompetent Prime Minister and the sooner we get rid of him the better.
“The U-turns, don’t wear a mask, put your mask on, take your mask off, and then rules that are made that the Tory people don’t adhere to and all the money that is coming in from these Russian oligarchs.
“The Tory Party is funded by criminal Russians, it’s crazy.”
Staunch socialist Miriam goes on: “I was a very strong critic of Mrs Thatcher but she was an impressive woman, a formidable leader, a remarkable person.
“You couldn’t say Boris Johnson is remarkable, he’s a remarkable s**t, he’s a remarkable adulterer.
“I mean he doesn’t know how many children he’s got and he’s our leader. Get rid of that bumbling t**t, he’s hopeless. God help us. I think standards have slipped.
“I feel a great sadness, I mourn what’s happened to England, the country of my birth, the country of my language, the best literature and we had an outstanding Royal Family.”
Mr Johnson, 56, has a son with fiancée Carrie Symonds, four children with ex-wife Marina Wheeler and is reported to have another child after an affair.
Miriam, who is currently in BBC series Almost Australian, also raised fears over Donald Trump as she spoke about lockdown play Watching Rosie, a tender portrayal of experiencing dementia.
The actress says: “Well, I’m scared of getting Alzheimer’s and losing my marbles. Scared of having a stroke like my mother did. I really am very frightened.
“I’m not a brave person at all. I don’t know what the future holds and I’m sort of despairing but then I think somebody like President Trump, he may not know it, but he’s got dementia.
“He is exhibiting signs of mental deterioration. He’s leading the world into chaos and he needs to be removed.”
