Boris Johnson lays bricks on campaign trail in Bedford
Boris Johnson visits visits a David Wilson Homes building site in Bedford while on the campaign trail.
He tries his hand at bricklaying and is then given a tour of the remainder of the site.
Mr Johnson remarked that his efforts were “not bad” – before looking back on his work and adding: “Kind of.” A site worker then took a spirit level to inspect the PM’s efforts.
Matt Quinn, a bricklaying foreman who helped the Prime Minister, said Mr Johnson “wasn’t bad” and suggested he was following in the footsteps of Winston Churchill, who enjoyed bricklaying as a hobby.
