Boris Johnson’s Answer To Question About His Whereabouts Leaves People Confused

Boris Johnson is known for not quite answering questions in the usual manner.

But his latest TV appearance has left viewers utterly confused as to what he was on about.

The Prime Minister spent Christmas at his country retreat Chequers but broke away to resume official duties, visiting a vaccination centre in Milton Keynes today (29 December).

It's the first time the country has really heard directly from him since a pre-recorded address last week, in which he urged people to get the Covid booster jab.

So it's been a while since the press had managed to get some time with him on camera.

And speaking in a pooled interview, Johnson was asked about what he had been up to over the past week or so.

In a clip of the interview shared on the BBC, the reporter says: "Question from ITN. Where have you been for the last 10 days?"

Well, rather than give a detailed answer about his schedule over recent days, he gave a bit of a sheepish reply.

Looking a touch confused, he tells the reporter: "I've been, ah... I've been... in this country. Where do you think?"

I mean, it's a kind of answer, isn't it?

And viewers who watched the interview were left scratching their heads too, wondering what was going on and why he seemed so wrong-footed by the question.

Writing on Twitter, one user said: "Utterly bizarre and panicked response from Boris Johnson. Weird."

Echoing the confusion, another commented: "What a weird response."

"@BorisJohnson you are a strange fellow," put a third.

While another added: "Given he's only asked where he's been for the last 10 days @BorisJohnson saying "In this country" seems odd."

This is the latest bizarre public appearance of Johnson's premiership.

Just last month, he left some of the country's business leaders perplexed after he went on a tangent about Peppa Pig.

During his speech to the CBI, Johnson appeared to lose his place and began fumbling through his notes before rambling about Peppa Pig World.

He said: ""Yesterday I went, as we all must, to Peppa PigWorld. Hands up if you’ve been to Peppa Pig World!

"I loved it. Peppa Pig World is very much my kind of place. It has very safe streets, discipline in schools, heavy emphasis on new mass transit systems. Even if they’re a bit stereotypical about Daddy Pig."
