The striking similarities between Boris Johnson and Henry VIII

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.

King Henry VIII Reincarnated
The spirit of Henry VIII lives on, in a mordern day equivalent called Boris Johnson

Right, so here are the similarities I’ve noticed so far.

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.
