This time the Foreign Secretary has caught some flack for his outrageously posh pronunciation of Glastonbury. Speaking in the House of Commons to fellow MPs, Johnson criticised Jeremy Corbyn's speech at the music festival over the weekend claiming that "friends and admirers of this country around the world were genuinely alarmed" at his words.

Using bygone language such as "Orphic spell" and talking of people "acceding to his desire", the sandy haired rogue came across as though he'd forgotten the lines for his GCSE performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream and was trying out any vaguely Shakespearian-sounding word.

His biggest faux-pas was his insistence on repeatedly calling the festival "Glah-stonbury" and using the fact it was based in the South-West as his reasoning.

So sure was he of the pronunciation that as he rambled on trying to cotton together an argument for what was wrong with Corbyn's speech, he accidentally said Glastonbury correctly, before correcting himself.

Of course, what he was really trying to do was distance himself from the flower crown wearing hippies and the metropolitan elite who impersonate them at the festival.

A feat that would be made easier were it not for the footage that has been dug up of him attending 'Glah-stonbury' in 2000.
