"A compulsive liar who has betrayed every single person he has ever had dealings with: every woman who has ever loved him, every member of his family, every friend, every colleague, every employee, every constituent."
- Former Conservative MP Nick Boles
"People always ask me the same question, they say, 'Is Boris a very very clever man pretending to be an idiot?' And I always say, 'No.'"
- Ian Hislop
"Boris is good. They call him Britain Trump."
- Donald Trump, former host of The Apprentice
"I know a lot of Tory MPs and I am sad to say the public is basically correct. Tory MPs largely do not care about these poorer people. They don't care about the NHS."
- Dominic Cummings, former senior advisor to Boris Johnson
