Heathcote Williams composed his ‘study in depravity’ more than three years ago, before the 2016 EU referendum, but his portrait of the man who would be prime minister is as true a likeness of its subject now as it was then.

Drawing on biographies by Sonia Purnell and Andrew Gimson, a great many newspaper articles, and Johnson’s own journalism and TV appearances, Williams assembles a blistering charge sheet: climate change denial, dishonesty, hypocrisy, incompetence, racism, violence, ‘remorseless self-promotion’, ‘a ruthless and often cruel ambition together with an elitism and a ferocious temper when challenged’.
