Boris Johnson names new dog Distraction Tactic

PM Boris Johnson has had a rescue dog delivered to 10 Downing Street that he has already decided to name Distraction Tactic.

The smelly, scruffy haired creature has adopted a dog to live in the flat above 10 Downing Street and quickly chose a name.

‘I think Distraction Tactic is most appropriate,’ Johnson told the press.

A new kind of dog whistle will now be heard coming from Downing Street as Johnson wants to train Distraction Tactic to play nice with journalists, while barking at anyone not white or upper-class.

Boris plans to introduce the dog to his children, as soon as he remembers how many he has and where they all live.

Distraction Tactic is considered to be the second most intelligent resident of 10 Downing Street, with Larry the Cat still number one.
