Conservative leadership contender Boris Johnson visited Barry Island on 6 July, praising the “world famous resort” ahead of a hustings at the All Nations Centre, Cardiff.


Posing for photographs with ice cream from Marco’s Cafe, the controversial former Foreign Secretary was joined by Secretary of State for Wales Alun Cairns, before he travelled to the Welsh capital to debate rival Jeremy Hunt.

“It was fantastic to visit Barry – in particular Barry Island, the world famous resort,” Johnson told the Glamorgan Gem. “It is a destination championed so successfully by our very own Alun Cairns MP and a real treat to taste some ice cream from Marco’s and to receive such a warm welcome.” “I have spent many happy times in Wales and I am determined to support the key Welsh sectors such as agriculture, tourism and the Welsh language should I become Prime Minister.”

However, though Davies maintained the reception both MPs received was “fantastic,” not everyone agreed, with popular site Welsh Bollocks captioning the picture of Cairns as one of Johnson’s “unidentified children.”

“The child called “Alan” by his dad was generally well behaved, and based on his constant giggling thought to be around ten years old.”
