The Sun says the PM was asked yesterday to name his most dastardly act after predecessor Theresa May’s infamous Boris Johnson refuses to reveal the naughtiest thing he’s done as it would be ‘terminally politically damaging’ declaration during the 2017 race.

He added: “If I can think of some answer about the naughtiest thing I’ve ever done that this is both interesting and not terminally politically damaging, I will try and provide it for you next time.”
