Oh Boris. Lovely Boris, with his untucked shirt and his comedy hair and his willingness to risk our economic security and way of life just to advance his own political prospects. Boris, eh? Wot a legend.

Today is probably the highlight of his career so far, a meteoric rise that’s taken him from magazine editor to panel show host to mayor of London. Now, with the EU referendum won and David Cameron having announced his resignation, he stands poised to take the final prize, glittering prize.

“You’re an idiot,” one tearful groupie can be heard screaming. “Fucking arsehole!” yells another. “Fuck off Boris!” screams a third.
