Now, having reached Number 10, finally, we all stand breathless, waiting for what will happen next. Apart, maybe, from best-buddy POTUS45, who is all happy and praise. Of course.
Prime Minister, is it? Does Mr. BoJo intent to serve? I don’t think so. But maybe he will surprise me.
I just read up on his personal history on wikipedia. Born to well-to-do parents, he was educated at all the right places: Eton, Oxford, you name it. Later went into journalism. After being sacked from The Times for falsifying a quotation, he went to Brussels to become The Daily Telegraph’s eurosceptic reporter. Chris Patten, former Governor of HongKong, stated that, at that time, Johnson was “one of the greatest exponents of fake journalism”. Need I say more?
On the other hand, Londoners elected him to be their Mayor and he oversaw the very successful summer Olympics 2012. As far as I recall, there was no big Johnson bashing, then. At least none, I’ve heard of.
What really bugs me, are all these hints and comparisons to Winston Churchill, that pop up on TV and other media recently. Why on earth would one want to compare these two? For their outer appearances? Is chubby the new charismatic? Or what else could it be for, I wonder…
