Oh Boris!

The man, the hair, the gaffes

Written by Dog 'n' Bone Books

Published: 08/11/2016

Robust, rotund, and ready for anything, Boris Johnson has blustered, bungled, and brokered his way to become one of the world’s most recognizable political figures.

From his early days as a journalist through to his years as the Mayor of London and now his position as British Foreign Secretary, Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson has made it his trademark to insult, appal, and entertain in equal measures. Never far from his latest gaffe—be it writing offensive limericks about world leaders, or dangling helplessly from zip wires—Boris, aka the Teflon toff, has an innate ability to weather even the most severe political storm. Can you image many other politicians who can so easily shrug off scandals as varied as extra-marital affairs, saying Hillary Clinton looks like "a sadistic nurse in a mental hospital," and insulting entire countries?

Loved and loathed in equal measures, no matter what you think about the man you can’t deny that he gets people talking. Through a series of hilarious images, games, captions, and quotations Oh Boris! delves deep into some of BoJo’s biggest gaffes, examining who he is, where he came from, and who he’s annoyed on his journey to the top. And of course, it wouldn’t be a book on Boris without some thorough analysis of THAT haircut.
