Boris Johnson, favourite to become the next PM, has revealed that he had to give up his dreams in order to do “what is right for the country he loves.”
When asked at a recent hustings event if he’d ever set aside his own self interests for the benefit of the country, Johnson claimed that he could have been even richer if he’d chosen a different career.
“It is well known that my life-long ambition has been to become the greatest gigolo this proud nation has ever seen. I’d make more money as a gigolo – but I’ve put all that on hold for the benefit of the country. Britain’s needs must come before mine.”
Johnson added that “you have to make sacrifices sometimes and that is the right thing to do.”
“Does that make me a hero for putting my gigolo dreams aside? Yes, yes it does.”
Johnson explained how his father, Stanley Johnson, had discouraged him when he expressed a desire, aged six, to become a male escort. Instead, Johnson Sr had forced him, against his wishes, into journalism with the long-term goal of making it as a politician.
Reports have suggested that in the hours after the revelation of Johnson’s gigolo dream, he has been contacted by Marine Le Pen, First Lady Melania Trump and Dame Judy Dench. All enquiring about his avaliability.
The Conservative leadership frontrunner also went on to detail how he has been forced to scrap plans for a book on Shakespeare that he had “in preparation.”
The project on the literary great is the latest planned book that the former Foreign Secretary has had to scrap. Jonhson also famously started writing about his love of the Spice Girls before he had to abandon it when taking up his post as Mayor of London. The first few chapters were then serialised over a three-week period in the Sunday Telegraph.
