It’s Johnson, not Boris

From someone very interested in languages…

Stop calling him Boris. He’s not our mate. He’s not down to earth. It gives the wrong impression and is a very very clever linguistic device of PR campaigns. Call him Boris Johnson or Johnson like every other political is referred to. He has one of the most elite possible backgrounds in this country / world. A member of the sort of clubs of people I met at Cambridge Uni that wouldn’t even been seen walking the streets with me in case it ruined their chances of membership.

Boris Johnson or Johnson. These small tricks make important difference to how we view someone. He’s not a loveable buffoon, he’s a highly intelligent, wealthy, elitist politician.
