#PleaseLeaveMyTown Trends On Twitter After Very Polite British Man Tells Boris Johnson Off In Viral Video

BBC1

The hashtag #PleaseLeaveMyTown became the top Twitter trend in the U.K. on Thursday evening after Boris Johnson was confronted in Yorkshire.


The Prime Minister was setting the scene for a “people versus Parliament" election strategy when BBC footage caught the moment a member of the public shook his hand and said: “Please leave my town."

Johnson promptly replied: “I will very soon" – the clip has since been shared widely on social media earning hundreds of thousands of views.

The man in the video was hailed as a British hero for coining the phrase.

Several Labour MPs used the hashtag to share the video, with Labour MP and shadow justice secretary Richard Burgon tweeting: “When two worlds collide – straight talking Yorkshire meets Bullingdon bluster! #PleaseLeaveMyTown."

Labour MP for Liverpool Walton Dan Carden meanwhile tweeted: “This is what happens when Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson actually comes face to face with “the people" he claims to speak for."

The viral exchange rounded off another torrid day for Johnson as his brother quit the Government, he was accused of using police officers in a “political stunt," and his Commons leader Jacob Rees-Mogg was criticized by England's chief medical officer.

Most of the time, dress codes are there for a reason. Sure, there are the unfair instances of "no spaghetti straps at school" and "no jeans at the office". But at the same time, there are certain work environments that don't call for inappropriate wear. And when you go in for that first interview, you've got to leave a good impression.

On a recent visit to Toronto, Tom Felton—the actor behind Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter franchise—shared a hilariously self-deprecating shot from his visit to a Harry Potter exhibit.

While there, Felton donned a Slytherin robe and posed next to a picture of his younger self as Malfoy, looking...well, a bit rough around the edges.
