A dual national born in New York City on 19 June 1964, Boris Johnson renounced his US citizenship in 2016. Boris Johnson is an establishment politician and member of the Bullingdon Club who has been termed "a known liar and bounder".
In March 2018 Craig Murray branded him "A Categorical Liar" after his performance in relation to the Skripal affair. In June 2019, Simon Wren-Lewis described Johnson as "a threat to democracy itself". Julian Kossoff for WhoWhatWhy summarised Boris Johnson as a "charlatan, a liar, and a cheat, bent on a narcissistic leadership that will embarrass the country... a chip off the Trump block."
Murray observed in July 2019 that "between just 28 May and 10 June Boris Johnson received £235,500 in 'private' donations, to himself personally, as he prepares to become the UK’s unelected Prime Minister."
- While the Brexit campaign can be seen as an orgy of opportunism for Boris Johnson, he seems the most likely to succeed in the race for the ‘top prize’. This is how the media have been framing the political debate for months.
- Good luck to him, he will inherit a disunited kingdom, with immigration centre-stage, an ongoing austerity agenda, a pile of debt presided over by George Osborne, and a shambles of international relations not seen since Suez. His party is bitter and divided and he faces a constitutional crisis on two fronts.
- Yesterday Cathal Foley wrote that Brexit could lead to a United Ireland, an Independent Scotland, and a Little England. This morning that looks more likely than ever.
2019 General Election

- Full article: UK/2019 General Election
In the UK/2019 General Election the Conservatives won 365 seats, giving Boris Johnson's government an overall majority of 80 seats. The PM was re-elected as the MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, after defeating Labour's Ali Milani by 7,210 votes (2,176 more votes than the majority at the UK/2017 General Election).
Boris Johnson was the leading contender to succeed David Cameron as Prime Minister by the time of the Conservative party conference in October 2016. Instead, Theresa May became PM on 13 July 2016 and appointed Boris Johnson to be Foreign Secretary in her new government.
Following May's resignation as Leader of the Conservative Party on 7 June 2019, Boris Johnson and his replacement as Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt were competing to succeed her as Leader and UK/Prime Minister.
On 27 April 2017, Boris Johnson told BBC Radio 4's Today Programme that Britain's RAF would be prepared to launch military strikes against Syria in breach of international law and without parliamentary approval, if asked to do so by Donald Trump:
- “If the Americans were once again forced by the actions of the Assad regime ... and they asked us to help, it would be very difficult to say ‘no,” Boris said.
- "The United States has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children. The activities are similar to preparations the regime made before its April 4, 2017 chemical weapons attack.
- "As we have previously stated, the United States is in Syria to eliminate the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. If, however, Mr Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price."
- "Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia & Iran who support him killing his own people."
- “We heard about this statement. We don’t know what it’s based on. And, of course, we strongly disagree with the wording ‘another attack,’ because, as you know, despite all the demands of the Russian side, there was no independent international investigation of the previous tragedy with the use of chemical weapons. We do not believe it is possible to rest the responsibility on the Syrian armed forces.
- “Without carrying out an investigation it is impossible, illegitimate and absolutely wrong, in regards to achieving the final goals on Syrian reconciliation, to put the blame on Assad. Of course, we consider unacceptable any such threats to the legitimate government of the Syrian Arab Republic,” Peskov stated.
In 2007, Johnson wrote an essay on overpopulation, stating "It is time we had a grown-up discussion about the optimum quantity of human beings in this country and on this planet". Other quotes from the article:
“Global over-population is the real issue [...] The UN last year revised its forecasts upwards, predicting that there will be 9.2 billion people by 2050, and I simply cannot understand why no one discusses this impending calamity, and why no world statesmen have the guts to treat the issue with the seriousness it deserves.”
Boris Johnson (25 October 2007) 
“As for motherhood – the fertility of the human race – we are getting to the point where you simply can’t discuss it, and we are thereby refusing to say anything sensible about the biggest single challenge facing the Earth”
Boris Johnson (25 October 2007) 
“How the hell can we witter on about tackling global warming, and reducing consumption, when we are continuing to add so relentlessly to the number of consumers? The answer is politics, and political cowardice.”
Boris Johnson (25 October 2007) 
Jews Against Boris
On 17 November 2019, thirty activists from campaign group Jews Against Boris went door-knocking for Labour PPC Ali Milani in Johnson’s west London seat of Uxbridge and South Ruislip. In the UK/2017 General Election, Johnson saw his Conservative majority halved.

Appointments by Boris Johnson
|"Vaccine passport"||““We have no plans to introduce them” said the prime minister (Boris Johnson) when talking about so-called vaccine passports. “I certainly am not planning to issue any vaccine passports and I don't know anyone else in government who would”, said Michael Gove and “no one has been given or will be required to have a vaccine passport” said the man himself, the vaccine's minister Nadhim Zahawi. Now in a slope slipperier than the ones Eddie the Eagle used to chuck himself off, it seems the government have changed their mind. First it was talk of nightclubs or sports events, and now the government is I quote “not ruling out making students be fully vaccinated to attend lectures”.... I guarantee you this is not where it ends.”||Michelle Dewberry||26 July 2021|
