Line of Duty creator Jed Mercurio’s brutal takedown of Boris Johnson dressed as a cop was bang on target

There’s been no shortage of very funny – and often very brutal – responses to Boris Johnson dressing up as a police officer to announce his latest War on Drugs.

The Prime Minister is no stranger to raiding the dressing up box, but there was something about this outfit that particularly got people’s goat.

A few people took inspiration from the BBC’s much acclaimed police drama Line of Duty to mock Johnson in some style …

… and then it got even better when none other than Line of Duty creator and showrunner Jed Mercurio himself got in on the act.

Shots fired! Man down! Man down!

And here’s just a flavour of the love people had for that.
