That's pretty much the opposite of what I view as the BDD mindset.

BDD is about specifying, not testing. Mocks allow you to specify the
observable behaviour of an object.

In fairness, I've not used Presenter First, I've only read about it -
but from what I can tell, it's a great solution for approaching the
MVP pattern with BDD.

That's my 2 cents. Just one opinion though. Looking forward to others.
