Photos of Boris Johnson You Won’t Be Able to Unsee

From cosplaying as a fishmonger to pasting a kid during a game of rugby, here are his wildest moments.

Boris Johnson may be stepping down as UK Prime Minister, but his image will forever be burned into our memories.

His leadership has been marked by scandal, as well as a clownish persona that has bemused and irritated politicians and the public alike. 

In his time as Mayor of London and Prime Minister, he has relished the opportunity to dress up, be it as a police officer, fishmonger, or serious politician.
