Hugh Grant was the last good prime minister to grace this Brexit-stricken land. Oh wait, that wasn’t real. Grant’sLove Actuallydays are long gone, but he’s certainly not taken a backseat when it comes to politics.
In an interview on BBC Radio 4 Today, theNotting Hillstar gave a powerful response to the utterly bizarre Conservative Party broadcast featuring aLove Actuallyparody.
The truly baffling video shows Boris Johnson re-enacting the rom-com’s creepiest moment, while somehow managing to make it even creepier.
“I did notice that one of the cards from the original film that he [Johnson] didn’t hold up was the one where Andrew Lincoln held up a card saying: ‘Because at Christmas you tell the truth,'” said Grant.
“I just wonder if the spin doctors in the Tory party thought that was a card that wouldn’t look too great in Boris Johnson’s hands.”
“One of the cards… Boris Johnson didn’t hold up was the one saying “Because at Christmas you tell the truth”

Just last week, Grant showed up on constituents’ doorsteps in London while out canvassing for Liberal Democrat candidate Luciana Berger. He is currently urging voters to vote tactically against the Conservative party.
Perhaps telling the truth isn’t the campaign strategy the Tories are going for?
