The media calling Carrie Johnson “First Lady” has gone down as well as you’d expect
With the wedding ring now firmly on her finger, Boris Johnson’s wife, Carrie is now officially Mrs. Johnson.
Carrie Johnson now shares her name with Dominic Cummings former job description.

She can forget about wedding planning and focus on the important things, like choosing wallpaper to replace the stuff that’s falling off the walls of their Downing Street flat.
"Now @BorisJohnson £840-a-roll wallpaper is peeling off! What a Carrie on. Experts are called BACK in to fix PM's costly Downing Street décor."
After being given a pasting for getting Tory donors to pay for gold wallpaper in his No.11 flat, Johnson faces fresh embarrassment. 🏴☠️

She’ll also be expected to attend functions with the PM, pressing the flesh or doing the Birdy Dance, or whatever passes for polite engagement during a pandemic.
The reports surrounding her first such engagement have made people’s hackles rise.

Boris Johnson may have modelled his recent incarnation on Donald Trump, but the UK doesn’t recognise the position of First Lady – or gentleman – for the PM’s spouse.
These reactions have it covered.
Ffs – we are not Americans. We don’t have a First Lady. Let’s not start that shit!

I don’t pay my sub to have the Guardian parroting populist crap like the Sun. Sort it out.

Carrie Johnson’s position in the parade of Johnson wives came up once or twice, but this said it best.
She's not the first lady. I doubt she'll be the last.https://t.co/qJDKXYH502

Perhaps we’d be better off with the First Cat – or should that be ‘furst’?
