Johnson's Yorkshire walkabout goes awry | The Guardian |

The political walkabout is a staple in the diet of the campaigning politician. And, despite dodging the odd egg or milkshake being considered an occupational hazard, it's a task Boris Johnson has relished. He may wish he had not bothered on Thursday.

Because, where Gordon Brown had his "bigoted woman" and Ed Miliband had his bacon sandwich, the prime minister has a "please leave my town".

Johnson was approached by a member of the public while in Morely in Leeds. The man smiled and greeted the prime minister with a handshake, before politely asking him to leave his town. "I will, very soon," replied Johnson, as the man clapped him on his back and walked away.
