The inglorious life and works of Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, in 21 New European front pages

We had his number from the start. Here are the front pages that prove it.

Boris Johnson front pages

We had his number from the start. Well, long before the start to be fair. In October 2017 The New European published a front page which anyone other than Boris Johnson would be suing over. Liar, Cheat, Charlatan, National Embarrassment, Unfit For Public Office. With the bounds of public decency it was as damning as a headline we could conjur. And it, as time has proven, accurate.

Since then we have trailed Boris Johnson’s careering careerism in dozens of front pages that told it as we saw it at the time. Here are 21 of the best. We genuinely wish we never had cause to design them, but in the circumstances it was the least we could do.
