“Don’t be fooled… Boris only cares about Boris.”
A set of images compiled by Labour activist Matt Thomas eloquently conveys the lie of Boris Johnson’s attempt to cast himself as ‘man of the people’ defending the votes of leavers.
Thomas’s tweet accompanying the images points out the indisputable: that those who know him well are clear that his life has been saturated with privilege and old-school-tie connections:
Johnson studied, for example, at Balliol College in Oxford, where his godfather was ‘Master’ and vice-principal of the whole university. And those connections and ‘free rides’ – as everyone who knew him well confirms – with towering sense of entitlement that would infuriate the working class people he is trying to court if they realised it.
Johnson’s public persona is a constructed façade – and his ‘man of the people’ shtick is a sham.
