Rachel Johnson went topless on Sky News yesterday during a discussion about Brexit and her action left other debaters so confused that they didn’t know where to look.
The sister of Conservative MP Boris Johnson was on news show The Pledge when she brought up Cambridge academic Dr Victoria Bateman, the professor who goes completely naked while campaigning for the UK to stay in the EU (read here and here).
Starting the show in a silk blouse, the journalist said:
As I know it can be hard to get your voice heard about Brexit nowadays.
It feels like we’ve hit saturation point. Enter pro-EU campaigner Victoria Batemen who’s come up with a striking way this week to get herself noticed.
Appearing across the media completely starkers to make various points about Brexit – leaving Britain naked.
So in tribute to Dr Bateman I’ve decided to follow suit – every time we decide to talk about Brexit just to make sure I get noticed.
At this point, Ms Johnson began to unbutton her shirt and threw it off to the side as panellists Nick Ferrari and Carole Malone didn’t know where to look.
But she didn’t bare all for long. She soon retrieved her top and told the camera: “I’ll get dressed. I’ll put them away.”
