London | The father of the british prime minister Boris Johnson will ask for the French nationality after the exit of the Uk from the european Union carried out by his son, reports the Sunday Times.
The request for French nationality of Stanley Johnson, a 79-year-old was unveiled by his daughter Rachel in a book that was published last week.
In Rake’s Progress: My Political Midlife Crisis, Rachel Johnson writes that “his father is en route to become a French citizen, as his mother was born at Versailles”, tells the journal.
“This is good news, I could be French too,” added his daughter.
Stanley Johnson has been one of the first british officials in Brussels, member of the european Parliament and the Commission, which has led her offspring, including Boris Johnson, to spend part of his childhood in the belgian capital and learn French.
Anti-Brexit in 2016, he abruptly turned around the following year.
Like her son, Boris, he has not his tongue in his pocket, and has recently defied the instructions of government to stay the maximum at home to avoid the spread of the new coronavirus.
“[Boris] said that we should avoid going to the pub, but if I have to go to the pub, I will go to the pub”, he declared last week on the tv channel ITV.
The government finally ordered the closure of pubs, restaurants, theatres, cinemas, sports halls and leisure centres from Friday evening to combat the spread of the COVID-19 that has been 233 deaths in the country.
