It's hard to imagine a politician as divisive as Donald Trump but since Brexit and David Cameron's resignation, his heir apparent Boris Johnson has perhaps reached a similar status in the UK.

Both the Labour and Conservative parties are in internal turmoil and with Labour's mass defection of members it leaves Johnson as presumptive PM by default. However the public have started their own campaign under #buggeroffboris, and endorsed by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, to keep the floppy-haired politician out of the office.
