Boris Johnson: Blond Ambition (Channel 4 2017)

Published

on

For over a year Channel 4 followed one of Britain’s most well-known, colourful and controversial politicians: Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson. The Godfather of Brexit is once again on manoeuvres.

As he makes his latest play to realise his long-held dream to be Prime Minster, Channel 4 News Political Editor Gary Gibbon charts 14 months of Boris’s time as Foreign Secretary. How does our most unlikely chief diplomat carve out a reputation as a world statesman and navigate his way through monumental gaffes, U-turns and constant public slap-downs from Theresa May?

And crucially, what does Boris’s first ever spell in high office tell us about whether he has what it takes to lead on the national stage? After a disastrous showing post-election, Boris’s share price was at an all-time low, but now he’s muscled his way back onto the front pages.

The Foreign Secretary has offered his grand vision of how Brexit should be implemented; others have described it as the beginning of his campaign to oust Theresa May. His adversaries say he’s blown it but he has twice come within touching distance of the job, despite a career that has flirted with oblivion. Can Boris now sense this is third time lucky?
