It is no surprise that Boris Johnson is prone to putting out the occasional fib or blustering around some part of his life he would prefer to keep secret.
Fired from The Times for making things up. Fired from position of Foreign Secretary for lying. Bananas. A certain message on the side of a certain red bus. Mackerel.
Some might argue that he really is “the British Trump” but with a slightly larger vocabulary and an Etonian-polished accent.
Is it any surprise then that we already see Boris Johnson ditching his plans to uphold worker rights and his promises on climate change activity?
What should really worry us is that we may not even blink at his lies. His actions will go without contest.
