Boris Johnson Enjoys First Post-Lockdown Pint

Boris Johnson Enjoys First Post-Lockdown Pint

The Prime Minister pulled his own pint before toasting 'step two'

Boris Johnson has had his first post-lockdown pint a week after he allowed outdoor hospitality to resume in England.

The Prime Minister visited the Mount Tavern in Wolverhampton while on the campaign trail with Andy Street, the Conservative Mayor of the West Midlands who is up for re-election in May.

Johnson pulled himself a pint of Timothy Taylor's Landlord pale ale, before sitting down and toasting 'step two', in reference to the second phase of his roadmap out of lockdown, before knocking back some of his beer.

Johnson had initially planned to go back to the pub last Monday, when restrictions were eased, however he pushed back the date following the death of Prince Philip, while all campaigning was called to a halt to observe a period of mourning.

Posting on Twitter he said: "Great to be back at the pub again, and to see so many reunited with friends and family.

"We've worked so hard to get to this point. Let's keep going. Remember hands, face, space & fresh air."

Elsewhere, Leader of the Opposition Sir Keir Starmer had a less enjoyable experience as he was told to leave a Bath pub by its landlord, while on a walkabout in the city.

Landlord Rod Humphris, from the Raven pub, shouted 'that man is not allowed in my pub' and 'get out of my pub' as the politician, wearing a black face mask, walked out of the door.

Humphris appeared to be held back by security guards during the incident with Sir Keir Starmer.

On why he kicked the Labour leader out of the pub, the 54-year-old explained: "I had heard that the Labour Party were coming round and he turned up and I told him what I thought of him, basically.

"I think he has utterly failed us as the leader of the Opposition, he has completely failed to ask the questions that needed asking, like, why did we throw away our previous pandemic preparedness?

"Why have we just accepted lockdown? Why have we just accepted the loss of all our freedoms?"

Humphris continued: "He walked into my pub without asking and I threw him out. Or at least, I did my best to throw him out - his security got in the way."
