Boris Johnson is confident that he will keep his job as Prime Minister he sang Gloria Gaynor’s “I will survive” in Downing Street.

It has been reported that Johnson sang the song to his new director of communications, Guto Harri.

Harri asked the Prime Minister “are you going to survive Boris?” and in an interview with Golwg 360 Johnson said, “I’ve got all my love to give.”

Johnson also asked Harri if he should take the knee, this is in response to him quitting GB News after the suspension for taking the knee in regard to racism in football.

Harri said,  “I went in to see the Prime Minister at five o’clock on Friday after filming The World In Place in Barry, and I went through the Cabinet Office in Whitehall to avoid being seen. in the street and go through the cramped corridors in Downing Street to get to his office.

“I walked in and did a salute and said ‘Prime Minister, Guto Harri reporting for duty’ and he stood up from behind his desk and started taking the salute but then he said ‘What am I doing, I should take the knee for you.’

“And we both laughed. Then I asked ‘Are you going to survive Boris?’ And he said in his deep, slow and purposeful voice and started to sing a little while finishing the sentence and saying ‘I Will Survive.’

“I inevitably invited him to say ‘You’ve got all your life to live’ and he replied, ‘I’ve got all my love to give.’ so we had a little blast from Gloria Gaynor. No one expects that, but that’s how it was.

“There was a lot of laughter and we sat down to have a serious conversation about how to get the government back on track and how we are moving forward.”#

However despite the initial welcome, Harri said that “90% of their conversation was very serious.”

Harri said that the Prime Minister is “not all that clownish but a very likeable character.”

The employment of Harri comes as the Prime Minister has promised to shake up Downing Street and get everything back on track following the Sue Gray report and calls for her to resign.
