Drunk driver tries to convince cops he’s ‘Boris Johnson’ with driving licence

A driver pulled over by police in Groningen, in the northern Netherlands, on Sunday (April 30) produced a very unconvincing driving licence in the name of "Boris Johnson".

Boris Johnson is no stranger to lawbreaking, having been issued with a fine for breaking lockdown rules in April last year – but he’s not a drunk driver.

But a man had been stopped for a random traffic stop and officers quickly realised the driver, who refused a breathalyser test, was under the influence of alcohol.

The driving licence he was using bore a photo of the former Prime Minister, showing the Old Etonian's signature dishevelled hairstyle, and had a few other convincing details.

The licence has Mr Johnson’s correct date of birth, and the date of issue – 24 July 2019 – matches the date he moved into 10 Downing Street.

However, there were one or two aspects of the licence that were a little “off”. Its expiration date was listed as December 3000 and the photo did not in any way resemble the driver stopped by police.

“Unfortunately for this person, we did not fall for this fake,” the Groningen police said on Twitter.

The licence was apparently a novelty item produced in Ukraine. The police confiscated it and issued the driver with a fine.

Journalist Kysia Hekster, writing on Twitter, said the fake licences here easy to come by and boasted that she herself had a couple in the name of Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy and former German leader Angela Merkel.

Similar novelty items can easily be purchased from Amazon for less than £10.

While the joke license appears to have been produced in Ukraine, it’s unclear whether the driver posing as Boris Johnson also holds Ukrainian nationality.
