"The former Mayor of London and now Foreign Secretary would be most trusted to pull pints and lend a sympathetic ear across the bar, according to figures released at [CAMRA's] Great British Beer Festival, running all this week at Olympia London.
"More than one in five (22 per cent) of those surveyed by YouGov on behalf of CAMRA said they'd trust Johnson to run their local pub."
A closer look at that the figures can produce rather different interpretations:
- 78% did not opt for Boris Johnson, or
- 32% opted for no politician, and 22% (the same percentage that Johnson got) said they didn't know, which totals 54%. A more accurate headline would have been: "Most drinkers don't trust any politician to run a pub".
- Jeremy Corbyn, who says he drinks " very, very little", is ranked much higher than Owen Smith (drinking habits unknown).
