Boris on YouTube

Being a high profile celebrity has helped Boris Johnson’s name recognition during the London Mayor contest. But being well known comes with its downside too, as it means that your past failings or blunders are likely to be well known too.

The large collection of films about Boris on YouTube demonstrate this well, he’s a very popular subject, but many of the pieces either mock or criticise him.

We’ve selected five, each of which highlights one particular reason not to support Boris Johnson in the Mayoral election.

You can watch them below, and take part in our online poll to select the one which you think is the most effective anti-Boris message for the elections. Who knows whether any of the campaigns will pay attention to the vote, but as Peter Snow says, “it’s just a bit of fun”. So watch and vote away!

He’s a buffoon: (2 / 9%)

He’s a sporting buffoon: (3 / 13%)

He’s consorted with dodgy characters: (8 / 35%)

He was sacked by David Cameron: (0 / 0%)

He’s said loads of mad things: (10 / 43%)

Total Votes: 23
