Having waited through several seasons of blood-letting, Euro-cides and the occasional Esther McVey nipple, Game of Thrones fans were fuming that such poorly written character gets to be PM. Boris Johnson now gets to sit on the Iron Throne or, as it is more commonly known, ‘Margaret Thatcher’s khazi’. Boris, the idiot love-child of Robert Baratheon and Hodor, was a relatively minor character, until he encouraged the White Walkers to vote leave at the end of Season Two.
Viewers were hooked on Theresa May, the Mother of all Shitstorms, being assassinated by journalists like Jon Snow. Yet, they naively expected complicated plot strands, like Brexit, to be resolved and Bran to finally get his disability allowance. Instead, Boris becomes King and Donald Trump gets to privatise Westeros. A spokeswoman for the show said: ‘If you only ask 160,000 Tories to pick the next PM, of course you’re going to get an ending no one wants.’
Ian McShane commented: ‘I famously said Game of Thrones was just tits and dragons, but that doesn’t mean I wanted to see Dominic Raab and Andrea Leadsom taking over.’
