END Boris Johnson performed Gloria Gaynor’s hit I Will Survive as a vow to defy the doubters and fight.
New No10 team leader, Guto Harri revealed PM started him with the dam in 1978 when he agreed to take the job last week.
In an unusual interview published today Mr Harri also said BoJo was “not a clown at all”.
Former BBC journalist Mr Harri served as the Prime Minister’s communications adviser when he was Mayor of London before becoming a political pundit.
He was briefly a presenter on GB News but left the channel shortly after causing controversy by kneeling live on air.
Mr Johnson has now reappointed him as Downing Street’s communications director after a get rid of top staff.
But on his first day on the job, it was Mr. Harri who became the story after it was revealed BoJo convinced him Go on the boat – by having a song in his No10 study.
He told Welsh outlet Golwg: “I walked in and said hello and said ‘Prime Minister, Guto Harri is on duty’ and he got up from behind his desk and started to say hello but then he She said ‘What am I doing, I. should get your knee.’
“And we both laughed. Then I asked ‘Are you alive Boris?’ And he spoke in his low, slow and purposeful voice and started singing a little while finishing the sentence and said “I’ll survive”.
“I definitely invited him to say ‘You have your whole life to live’ and he replied, ‘I have all my love to give,’ so we had a bit of a blast from Gloria. Gaynor!”
Asked about today’s exchange, the Prime Minister chuckled while his spokesman declined to comment on private conversations.
Mr Harri – who used to be a phone expert who berated the Prime Minister over Partygate – also offered a lesser endorsement of his new boss.
He added in the interview: “He’s not a total clown, but he’s a very likable character.”
Mr. Harri was seen walking down Downing Street today with a Tesco bag.
He told reporters he was giving healthy snacks and mineral water to No10 staff – a fresh take on the drinking culture the Prime Minister has vowed to eliminate.
Mr Johnson is fighting to stick around despite a steady stream of Tory MPs calling for him to quit.
Fifteen supporters have so far broken ranks to publicly demand his resignation, nine of which have submitted a letter of no confidence.
