A man with an uncanny and unfortunate resemblance to Boris Johnson has been left with no choice but to wear a T-shirt saying he’s not Boris Johnson, after receiving non-stop verbal abuse in the street.

Drew Galdron, who has worked as a lookalike for Boris in the past, says he’s become a bit of a recluse since the real Boris announced he won’t be standing for Tory party leadership, even after ‘winning’ the Brexit referendum.
In the past few weeks I’ve become very concerned about drawing attention to myself.
I get people muttering things under their breath when they walk past me, which is upsetting.
I’m honestly worried to leave the house as I’m scared of what people could do. I have to think twice every time I want to go out as I can’t always expect the public to be respectful.
People are yelling things at me and trying to take pictures, but at the minute I’m worried something more serious could happen.
I have a history of mental illness and agoraphobia and sadly recent events have made it worse.
He’s also keen to distance himself from Boris’s political ideologies:
The similarities stop at our looks. I like his personality, but I don’t agree with his politics.
We don’t blame the guy – here’s an example of what the real Boris has been dealing with (though it’s wholly deserved, mind):
Certainly not a good time to be looking like Boris Johnson. Could be worse though – he could be a dead ringer for Mesut Ozil like this poor Argentinian kid.
