The Boris Guide to Global Influence

Boris Johnson has been preparing for years to be Foreign Secretary. In a special BoJo guide to global diplomacy we remind you of how he has described the world leaders and nations that he will now have to work with and influence:


Barack Obama, US President –  a “part-Kenyan” with  an “ancestral dislike” of Britain.

Hillary Clinton, Democratic Nominee for US President – “like a sadistic nurse in a mental hospital”.

Queen Elizabeth ll – loves the Commonwealth because “it supplies her with regular cheering crowds of flag-waving piccaninnies.”

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan,  Turkish president –  “a terrific wankerer”.


China – “Chinese cultural influence is virtually nil, and unlikely to increase.”

Greece – “They make us pay in our taxes for Greek olive groves, many of which probably don’t exist.”

Papua New Guinea – “orgies of cannibalism and chief-killing”.

Ireland –  St Patrick’s day  celebrations are “lefty crap”.

The Congo – “tribal warriors who will all break out in watermelon smiles”.

Canada – Actually Boris seems to like Canada. It’s where he based himself whilst Mayor of London for much on the London Riots of 2012.
