Boris Johns-un: Photo ops leave PM looking like North Korea's Kim

It’s Boris Johns-un! The Prime Minister’s love of a photo-op leaves him looking like worryingly like North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un

  • Boris Johnson and Kim Jong-un share a love of photo ops, often pictured among workers at factories 
  • That has led to some strikingly similar photos of the two men emerging over the years, as this shows 
  • Whether its rallying the troops or inspecting a harvest, the pair share more than just a recognisable hairdo

One’s a maverick leader with an instantly recognisable hairdo – loved by some, reviled by others, with a taste for the finer things in life and weakness for women… and the other is Boris Johnson. 

And it seems comparisons between the UK Prime Minister and North Korean despot Kim Jong-un don’t stop there, as these rather alarming photo matchers show. 

The Prime Minister today paid a visit to Rosyth shipyard in Scotland, and donned one of his familiar high visibility jackets. 

It was another photo opportunity that has left some observers noticing his stage-managed appearances have certain similarities to he North Korean dictator’s frequent visits to industrial venues.  

Kim, in his role as Supreme Leader of the so-called Hermit Kingdom, is fond of ‘field guidance’ visits in which he is typically shown walking around a construction site, field or factory while issuing diktats to obliging lackeys.

Boris may not enjoy the same level of obedience from his aides, but is never-the-less partial to site visits of his own and is regularly photographed in factories and field giving his own form of ‘guidance’ to workers.

Over the years that has led to some strikingly similar pictures emerging, as this MailOnline analysis shows…
