Conservative leadership contender, Jeremy Hunt, admitted in an interview yesterday, that he is frequently haunted by nightmares about his rival, Boris Johnson.
Speaking on ITV's Loose Women as part of his bid to become the next PM, Hunt explained, “Boris regularly comes to me at night in the most vivid dreams.
“He is wearing a clown mask, holding a carving knife and singing in a child's voice, ‘four more months to Halloween’ over and over."
In the interview with host Colleen Nolan, The 52 year old Foreign Secretary said, "In the dream I try to run, but as soon as I reach a wooden sign saying ‘Irish Backstop’, I can't run any further. It’s terrifying.
“Sometimes Jeremy Corbyn and Nigel Farage are also there, dancing impishly around a bonfire and cackling while Donald Trump plays the pan pipes with his tiny hands.”
Seemingly tearful at times, a trembling Hunt explained that being selected as one of the final two in the Tory Leadership contest has been a "wonderfully surreal experience" but quickly added, “the dreams though… the dreams are so, so real…”
When quizzed by co-host Janet Street Porter, about the possible meaning of the dream, Hunt, said that he had “no idea" but wakes up afterwards with an odd compulsion to instruct his Stockbroker to buy shares in US Medical Insurance firms.
