Tory Boris is chewed up.
The shadow higher education minister had been revelling over the Labour Party leadership rows in a newspaper column.
He wrote: "For 10 years, we in the Tory Party have become used to Papua New Guinea-style orgies of cannibalism and chief-killing and so it is with a happy amazement that we watch as the madness engulfs the Labour Party."
But Jean L Kekedo, Papua New Guinea's High Commissioner in London, said the "damaging" remarks were an insult to the integrity of all in her country.
Last night, Johnson apologised. He added: "I meant no insult to the people of Papua New Guinea, who I'm sure lead lives of blameless bourgeois domesticity in common with the rest of us."
