Woman In Boris Johnson's Constituency Calls Him A ‘Filthy Piece Of Toerag’ And Goes Viral

#FilthyPieceOfToerag was trending.

A woman in Boris Johnson’s constituency labelling the prime minister a “filthy piece of toerag” - and instantly gone viral. 

Approached by Sky News presenter Sophie Ridge in Uxbridge, west London, it took just one mention of Johnson’s name to rile the member of the public.

“Don’t you ever mention that name in front of me, that filthy piece of toerag,” the woman said.

The clip has since been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, while #FilthyPieceOfToerag trended in the UK with thousands of reactions.

The clip has echoes of ‘Brenda from Bristol’, the woman who blurted “not another one” after Theresa May’s surprise announcement that she would be seeking a general election in 2017.

One of those reactions came from Labour MP David Lammy, who tweeted: “This constituent in Uxbridge sees right through Boris Johnson.”

Comedian and writer David Schneider meanwhile tweeted: “‘Filthy piece of toe-rag’ is the new ‘Please leave my town’.”

The hashtag #PleaseLeaveMyTown became the top Twitter trend in the UK in September after a man in Yorkshire shook the prime minister’s hand and said: “Please leave my town.”
