Alexander Boris De Pfeffel Johnson MP*

Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson MP * Took great care of his career, as far as most could see: Known for his public school foppishness As much as unfettered politjcal frankness, His candid style of communication Not befitting many an occasions -Or at least that’s how it would often appear, Mrs May looking most severe […]

Trumpton*
