-->''"You canít rule out the possibility that beneath the carefully constructed veneer of a blithering idiot there lurks a blithering idiot."''
-->-'''Boris''', in a rare display of political self-awareness

[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_Johnson Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson]] is a UK Conservative politician, Mayor of London, journalist, novelist, historian, classicist, idiot and TV personality.

He's also the second[[note]]if not The[[/note]] most famous Tory bicyclist after fellow Eton and Oxford alum (and Bullingdon Club member) [[DavidCameron David "ignore that car behind me" Cameron]]. Easily recognizable by his [[MessyHair unruly mop]] of blond hair, general air of amiable distraction, and tendency to talk like somebody out of Creator/PGWodehouse (but ''not'' TheJeeves, as pointed out by e.g. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wrSUeDxBhg&feature=related Arnold Schwarzenegger]]).

A journalist covering politics and cars, and editor of ''[[BritishNewspapers The Spectator]]'' magazine, he came to major fame with an appearance on ''Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou''. He was a journalist only known - and then only really to other journalists - for an audio tape of a phone call in which he agrees to help an old school friend of his beat up another journalist. Ian Hislop had a transcript of this which he used to mock Johnson, which he hadn't been expecting; following this, he claimed in his column that the show was entirely scripted.

And then reappeared on the show later to retract this, reassuring "all the little children out there" that the show was indeed entirely spontaneous, and admitting that he's agreed to come back [[MoneyDearBoy purely for the money]]. He also appeared later as a repeated guest host.

Appears to be immune to embarassment: DidIJustSayThatOutLoud, IsThisThingStillOn, DiggingYourselfDeeper, and ThatCameOutWrong are almost exclusively invoked by other people, no matter how deep he inserts his feet in his mouth.

On a different note, he is probably the most ethnically-mixed political person of significance living today after UsefulNotes/BarackObama himself, being not only English but American (born in [[BigApplesauce New York]], which means it is possible for him to be the only man ever to have served as Mayor of London and President of the United States), French, German, Russian, and Turkish. He's the whole CrimeanWar in one messy blond package!

!Tropes applicable to BorisJohnson:

* AltumVidetur: Is fond of making Latin and classical Greek quotations. Once dodged a question from [[{{Newsnight}} Jeremy Paxman]] himself by saying "Look, Jeremy, I would hesitate to accuse you of ''[[IrrelevantThesis ignoratio elenchi]]'', but...", reducing Paxman to confusion.
* BadassBystander: Once [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2009/nov/03/boris-johnson-attack-camden-london1 saved a woman]] from teenage thugs ("oiks"); no job is too big for the Mayor.
** Even more badass: the woman was one of his inveterate press critics. After the incident, she said that while she preferred that he not be Mayor of London, she would much rather have Johnson nearby on his bike in case of her getting mugged than the Labour alternative (Ken Livingstone).
* BlueBlood: ''Series/WhoDoYouThinkYouAre'' uncovered that he is a distant descendant of [[TheHouseOfHanover King George II]], which also makes him related to nearly every single European Royal Family.
* BornInTheWrongCentury
--> '''Paul Merton:''' Boris is the right man to lead us back into the seventeenth century!
* BunnyEarsLawyer
* ButNotTooForeign: As mentioned, he's a multiethnic cocktail comparable to UsefulNotes/BarackObama.
* DoNotCallMePaul: Accidentally lost points once because he gave his name on HIGNIFY as "Boris", when it was pointed out that his first name according to his birth certificate, is legally "''Alexander''".
* TheCasanova
* CloudCuckooLander
* CrazyAwesome: Invoked frequently, and indeed, one of the reason he's so successful as a politician.
* ColbertBump: See ''HaveIGotNewsForYou''. Also, the [[BritishNewspapers Guardian]] told people not to vote for him, which always seems to work ([[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush in reverse]]).
* ConfusingMultipleNegatives: "I could not fail to disagree with you less" (won the Plain English Campaign's "Foot in Mouth" award)
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: "Badgers badgers badger badger badgers" ''is'' in fact, as he claims, "a perfectly grammatical declarative English sentence".
* TheDitz
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Invoked frequently. No matter your political stance, it's clear the British people love Boris.
* MrFanservice: Even to many that can't stand his politics. Or as one [[BritishNewspapers Guardian columnist]] put it: "It's that sodding ''hair''."
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: Overlapped at school and university with DavidCameron, albeit not in the same year.
* FanNickname: "[=BoJo=]". Or as Alan Duncan MP put it: "With those initials, you don't want to use them on their own".
--> ''Richard Herring:'' "Never do that with Pete Docherty, do they?"
* FeeFiFauxPas: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_Johnson#Persona A lot]]. Has so far had to apologize officially to, among others, ''the entire populations of'' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_Johnson#Controversies Liverpool, Portsmouth and Papua New Guinea.]]
--> '''In the latter case:''' "I meant no insult to the people of Papua New Guinea who I'm sure lead lives of blameless bourgeois domesticity in common with the rest of us...I will happily add Papua New Guinea to my [[SelfDeprecation global itinerary of apology]]".
* FirstNameBasis: ''Everyone'' calls him Boris. He's one of the few people in British politics that are identified solely by their first name.
* HotScoop: Used to be a journalist, and long-term editor of ''Magazine/TheSpectator''.
* IdenticalGrandson: His father Stanley and brother Jo both have the same idiosyncratic hair. In another sense, he has worried that his career as a journalist and politician is paralleling that of his Turkish great-grandfather Ali Kemal...given that the latter was eventually executed by Ataturk.
* TheImmune: It has been noted (for example, in [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-19085875 this BBC article]]) that gaffes and scandals that would end the career of any other politician only seem to make Boris stronger. After getting stuck on a zipwire for twenty minutes, cutting an absurd figure as he hung over the Thames waving two small Union Flags, DavidCameron noted "If any other politician got stuck on a zipwire, it would be disastrous. With Boris it's a triumph".
* MessyHair: Chronically and iconically so. It's also so blond it's almost white.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: What many, including Paul Merton, have come to suspect. With a side of BewareTheSillyOnes - not just in politics, but also on the soccer field: watch him pull a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EN7YvqHAMg rugby tackle]] during a supposedly "friendly" game.
** It's generally agreed that he's not as daft as he appears to be. ''Nobody'' is as daft as Boris appears to be.
* OneOfUs: When he was re-elected in 2012, the day the election result was announced happened to be May 4th, International Franchise/StarWars Day. Boris ended his (otherwise entirely serious in content) victory speech with "May the Force be with you!"
* OverlyLongName
* PoliticianGuestStar: To the point where there is a special part of the [[HaveIGotNewsForYou HIGNFY]] DVD collection called "The full Boris".
* RenaissanceMan: See intro.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Combines this with a set of "oh, gosh", "um, ah" placeholder noise {{VerbalTic}}s to rather odd effect, leading [[MockTheWeek Russell Howard]] to speculate that when really excited, "he'd sound like a thesaurus going through a blender".
* SidetrackedByTheAnalogy: He often falls foul of this. For example, the now infamous '[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QplCetQYYKw coalition sausage]]' interview. Or as Martin Clunes put it:
--> It's on the internet, but [[RuleThirtyFour be careful]], if you just type "BorisJohnson" and [[FreudWasRight "sausage"....]]
* TheStarscream: Widely held to be this to Cameron, with ambitions of his own to be PM.
* TotallyRadical: A (probably) intentional example:
--> "Yes, cannabis is dangerous, but no more than other perfectly legal drugs. It's time for a rethink, and the Tory party - the funkiest, most jiving party on Earth - is where it's happening."
* {{Troll}}: It's entirely possible that he ''intentionally'' peppers his speech with as much AltumVidetur and SidetrackedByTheAnalogy as he can whenever he talks to [[{{Newsnight}} Jeremy Paxman]], just to screw with him.
* UpperClassTwit: How he initially tends to come across, though see ObfuscatingStupidity. On the other hand, for the public image, see also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TT2fZJR9JC0 this]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVeBmhc9v-U this]]
