Series of dimensioned illustrations of Boris Johnson in a range of postures from standing to waving and walking

Boris Johnson, born Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, is the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

He has suffered numerous defeats in parliament in his very short time of being Prime Minister and undergone a series of controversies and political blunders, including the very serious and very British problem of having lied to the Queen.

Boris Johnson is 5 foot 9 inches (1.75 m) tall.
