You'd think that today when he was making his highly anticipated speech at the Tory conference in Birmingham that he would have had his lines triple checked for any errors.
However, that doesn't appear to be the case as, during his speech, Johnson praised "grafters and grifters". Yes, "grifters". If you know what that means, then well done. If not, keep reading.
This came in a segment of his speech where he was attacking the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Johnson said:
It was astonishing that he [Corbyn] had absolutely nothing to say about the wealth-creating sector of the economy - the people who get up at the crack of dawn to prepare their shops the grafter and the grifter, the innovator, the entrepreneurs.
Now, nearly everyone will understand the grafter part but what about the grifter?
