Boris Johnson

He’s been to Eton and Oxford University. He’s a friend of David Cameron’s. Boris Johnson is one of the UK’s most flamboyant politicians. He was the mayor of London from 2008 until 2016, and the Foreign Secretary from 2016 to 2018.

Some see Boris as a bit of a joker. “He’s the sort of person who 200 years ago would have died aged 30 leading a cavalry charge into a volcano,” said one political commentator. “People always ask me the same question, they say, ‘Is Boris a very, very clever man pretending to be an idiot?’ And I always say, ‘No!’” the editor of Private Eye magazine once said.

Boris is well known for his love of cycling. He frequently commutes to work through the busy streets of London. Once, he got into trouble for speaking on a mobile phone whilst cycling. There were a number of letters criticising his behaviour, but Boris laughed it off.
