Protesters troll Boris Johnson with a little blue plaque surprise outside his home

It looks like the final straw for some Remain voters, who seem keen to have the former Mayor remembered in a less favourable way

We can only imagine this would be the expression as the MP woke up to the plaque

Boris Johnson has always been London's favourite blond - until recent political events, that is.

After shying away from the Prime Ministerial role and bowing out from the Conservative Party leadership, there was a notable dive in the Eton educated former Mayor's popularity.

Whether it was Theresa May's stinging words about his negotiation abilities or the internet's stinging reaction to his speeches, the post-Brexit mockery hasn't quite finished and it can't be an easy time for the Uxbridge and South Ruislip MP.

It was no wonder he was seen to look lost and confused on his first day after being appointed as Foreign Secretary in May's new Tory cabinet, another political turn which saw him become the subject of many political cartoons.

But looks like some politically aggravated Londoners couldn't hold back after the recent events, after this appeared outside the MP's north London home.

A blue plaque can be seen outside his house painting him a less complimentary light than what is usually written to commemorate well known figures.

It reads: "BOJO, destroyer of cosmopolitan unity & passer of buck lives here.”

In an interview with the Metro, the anonymous sign maker said: "Boris has destroyed my city as an act of callous arrogance.

"He gets away with it. He’s unpeggable in every way you’d care to mention.

"People’s lives are going to be seriously messed up because he thought it was the best way to become prime minister."
