The GB News presenter compared the Prime Minister to Winston Churchill as he discussed Boris Johnson’s relationship with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy. It comes ahead of his speech to Kyiv, in which he is set to announce a £300 million package in defensive military aid. Eamonn Holmes said people could see through his approach and labelled him a “Winston Churchill tribute act”.

Foreign affairs analyst James Marlow explained: “You see the usual social media against Boris when he was walking around [in Ukraine], people say it was all staged because all the buildings appear to be intact and he was walking around without a flak jacket.

“Of course you get the usual rubbish on social media, it seems to be growing.”

“But there is a point here, James,” Eamonn argued. 

“The difficulty is with Boris, people who can see through him will see a Winston Churchill tribute act going on here.

“It is an awful situation, it’s terrible. But likewise, who are you fooling, Boris?

“Is there not a situation where he could turn people against him?

“He’s written books on Churchill, Churchill’s his big hero and he’s invoking the spirit of Churchill.”
