After resigning from his post as an MP, former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson became a columnist for the conservative tabloid “Daily Mail” on Friday.
“The former prime minister’s first weekly column appeared online late Friday afternoon,” reports the BBC.
The Daily Mail, which was “one of Johnson’s staunchest supporters when he was Prime Minister”, recalls British broadcasting, welcomed the arrival in its pages of “one of the most witty and original feathers in the sector”.
For his first column, the former Prime Minister wisely chose a subject far from any controversy, notes the BBC: “He wrote about a weight-loss drug he had tried, which worked ‘miraculously’ with one of his ministers, but not with him.”
His column will be published in the Daily Mail every Saturday, the newspaper said, before launching: “Whether you’re a Boris fan or not, this will be required reading – both in Westminster and for millions around the world.”
For the record, Boris Johnson was a trainee journalist at the Times before devoting himself to politics.
Note that Boris Johnson, 58, resigned from his mandate as an MP last week before the publication of the results of the investigation into the “partygate”. In a damning report, the commission of inquiry claimed that Bojo has “deliberately deceived” parliamentarians in this case, conclusions qualified as “bullshit” by the former deputy.
