‘Bob lives near St James’s Park and walks with Sandy there every day. It was a beautiful morning, they were enjoying the sunshine and weren’t expecting the Prime Minister to be walking past.’
Another friend added: ‘Bob’s company has done a lot of work with the NHS and he is furious at Boris. When he saw him, he took the opportunity to let him know what he thinks.
