Mak­ing their feel­ings known

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

BORIS John­son has al­ways been Lon­don’s favourite blond – un­til re­cent po­lit­i­cal events, that is.

Af­ter shy­ing away from the Prime Min­is­te­rial role and bow­ing out from the Con­ser­va­tive Party lead­er­ship, there was a no­table dive in the Eton ed­u­cated for­mer Mayor’s pop­u­lar­ity.

Whether it was Theresa May’s sting­ing words about his ne­go­ti­a­tion abil­i­ties or the in­ter­net’s sting­ing re­ac­tion to his speeches, the post-Brexit mock­ery hasn’t quite fin­ished and it can’t be an easy time for the Uxbridge and South Ruis­lip MP.

It was no won­der he was seen to look lost and con­fused on his first day af­ter be­ing ap­pointed as For­eign Sec­re­tary in May’s new Tory cab­i­net, another po­lit­i­cal turn which saw him be­come the sub­ject of many po­lit­i­cal car­toons. But it looks like some po­lit­i­cally ag­gra­vated Lon­don­ers couldn’t hold back af­ter the re­cent events, af­ter this blue plaque ap­peared out­side the MP’s north Lon­don home, paint­ing him in a less com­pli­men­tary light than what is usu­ally writ­ten to com­mem­o­rate well known fig­ures. It reads: “BOJO, de­stroyer of cos­mopoli­tan unity & passer of buck lives here.”
