The Secret Diary of Boris Johnson Aged 131/4 (Hardback)Lucien Young (author)
- 5+ in stock
Delicious withering and scathingly satirical about the current incumbent of Number Ten, The Secret Diary of Boris Johnson Aged 13 ¾ is packed full of pin-sharp parody and merciless ribbing.
The newly discovered diary of Boris Alexander de Pfeffel Johnson, aged 131/4, provides a fascinating glimpse into how Boris, a lazy, bumptious and overweening child, comes to believe he should be Prime Minister. Along the way, we see him hone the techniques and persona that will one day hoodwink a nation.
Extract from 13-year-old Boris's TEN RULES FOR LIFE:

A friend is just an enemy you haven't yet made. Some say there's no 'I' in 'team'. Well, I say you can't spell 'friend' without 'fiend'. No matter how dear your chum, you never know what sort of treachery they harbour inside. After all, there are many people who consider me a friend!
