Grant Shapps is in hot water AGAIN this time for trying to erase Boris Johnson from a historic moment, oh how we wish we could all do that?
In this instance, Shapps appears to have had Boris Johnson photoshopped out of a picture in advance of the rocket launch from Spaceport Cornwall.
Sadly the launch attempt on Tuesday morning ended in failure after an “anomaly” during the flight.
After the launch failed, Shapps told Sky News: “Space is difficult. Everyone’s used to seeing rockets which explode from Japan, what have you. The great thing about this technology is that no one was harmed. The pilots came back in the aircraft. It didn’t work. I’ve no doubt that they’ll pick themselves up, dust themselves off and they’ll go again once they find out what exactly went wrong with it.”
However, another Branson rocket failure aside, the doctored picture was spotted on-line, before it was mysteriously deleted.
A source close to Shapps said: “Grant wasn’t aware anyone had edited the picture. He removed it as soon as it was pointed out. Obviously he wouldn’t endorse anyone rewriting history by removing the former PM from a picture. He was proud to serve in Boris’s government,” reports The Guardian.
Shapps and mishaps are like cheese and pickle, made for each other…
