Boris Johnson claims he ‘loves’ Mark Drakeford
Boris Johnson has claimed that he loves Mark Drakeford.
The Conservative Prime Minister was responding to claims that he does not engage enough with the Welsh Government.
The First Minister has repeatedly criticised the UK Government for infrequent meetings during the coronavirus pandemic.
But in an interview with ITV Cymru Wales’ political editor Boris Johnson put the blame on Mark Drakford.
He said: “He keeps saying by the way that I never I never call him, well he never calls me – I mean come on – it takes two to tango.
“I love the guy but he’s not on the phone to me all the time [and] I keep reading in the papers: ‘Mark Drakeford denounces Boris Johnson for failing to ring him up’ – well come on, you know he can always – If he really wants to have a conversation then he can ring me up.”
