Boris Johnson wanting to be ‘father of the nation’ got the mother of all reactions
According to Tom Newton Dunn in the Evening Standard, Boris Johnson wants to revamp his image in order to be seen as the ‘father of the nation’ – a ‘unifier who no longer divides for electoral gain.‘
Despite his 80-seat Commons majority, that sounds like a task akin to Donald Trump becoming the face of Greenpeace, and the wording led to some inevitable jokes on Twitter.
So Boris Johnson wants to be "father of the nation". Given we don't know how many children he has, who's to say he's not already?
