Boris Assaulted with Bun

Belated news reaches Boriswatch (via good egg Simon Fairthorne) that Boris was once assaulted with a bun.

Here’s the lowdown from the Henley-on-Thames archive.

    Boris describes this event at some length in a chapter of his book about the Henley campaign. From memory the book is called ‘Friends, voters, countrymen’ and the chapter is called ‘Who flung bun?’
