I HAVE just discovered a couple of interesting facts about Boris Johnson.

In the first place, he was actually born in the United States, in New York City, although his parents were UK citizens, and (unfortunately) so has he always been a UK national. Perhaps this helps explain his many similarities to Donald Trump?

Secondly, his full name is actually Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson!

Given this, and the rest of his privileged background, which included an education at Eton and Oxford, I am staggered that he has the nerve to portray himself as “one of us” (although his actions usually say otherwise!)
