Supernaturally inclined readers may like this. I have noticed some striking similarities between our current Prime Minister and an infamously hated old English King. So much so, in fact, that I wonder if the spirit of the old philandering thug might be present in our modern day philandering thug. Is it possible that Boris Johnson was King Henry VIII in a previous life? Let’s look at the evidence and you can make up your own mind.
Right, so here are the similarities I’ve noticed so far.
King Henry VIII (1491-1547)
Prime Minister Boris Johnson (1964-?)
|Fathered several illegitimate children but only publically acknowledged one.||Fathered an unspecified number of illegitimate children but only publically acknowledged his latest. Refuses to say how many other children he has (or he doesn’t know).|
|Decisions were grandiose, melodramatic and played for effect, lacking in detail or forethought.||Decisions are catchy slogans designed to capture the audience emotion and divert from missing detail.|
|Reactionary, intolerant, tyranical and violent.||Reactionary and intolerant, he sacked anyone who wasn’t totally in line with his version of Brexit. Infamously he was caught plotting to beat up journalist Darius Guppy in 1990.|
|Careless and stupid; had a serious jousting accident in 1524.||Careless and stupid; in early 2020 he waived away concerns of a pandemic, boasting of shaking hands with Covid patients, and then was hospitalised with Covid weeks later.|
|A notourious womaniser.||A notorious womaniser.|
|Cheated on his wives.||Cheated on his wives, including one who was getting cancer treatment at the time.|
|Made radical changes to the English constitution, some of them deeply unpopular.||Lead Britain into Brexit, the biggest and most disastrous constitutional change in over a century.|
|A keen gambler and dice player.||Gambled with the UK’s future to further his career.|
|Had a close advisor killed for giving bad marriage advice.||Had a close advisor fired for calling his partner “Princess Nut Nuts” in a text message.|
|Broke the country away from Rome and the Catholic Church, purely to further his own personal interests.||Broke the country away from Brussels and the European Union, purely to further his own personal interests.|
|His downfall was partly blamed on failings in foreign policy and his absurd reputation and ambition.||It all lines up, doesn’t it?|
