New Conservative Party leader and prime minister, Boris Johnson, has had to further delay the release of his biography of William Shakespeare, 'The Riddle Of Genius', for reasons as yet unknown, but it may be that its release will be cancelled altogether, after Johnson said:
"Never mind the backstop, the book stops here!"
It's a tremendous disappointment for those fond of shit books, particularly books written by some priviliged oaf with huge delusions of grandeur - as in Johnson's case.
Johnson has written several books during his time as a politician and mayor of London, which shows you just what can be achieved when you haven't got a real job stopping you doing other stuff.
Indeed, one of Johnson's earlier efforts is a book about his hero, Winston Churchill, the wartime prime minister. In 'The Churchill Factor: How One Man Made History', Johnson nails his colours to the mast. Churchill, himself, wrote the six-volume 'The Second World War' whilst PM, and whilst the war was being fought, and this is who Johnson is trying to emulate, though he clearly hasn't been told that Churchill had a full team of writers working for him night and day.
For now, however, the book-reading public are going to have to be patient for 'The Riddle Of Genius'. Johnson has his hands full: he has a country to run, and, for that, he's going to need his full concentration if he is to avoid unravelling all the good work Churchill did.
