Boris Johnson: My daily battle with the Kardashians

London Mayor reveals that he is fighting a losing war with his children over the E! Entertainment show Keeping up with the Kardashians which they are obsessed with – and which he cannot understand


He has spent his life fighting battles, taking on the biggest names in politics and winning.


But London Mayor Boris Johnson appears to have lost a skirmish slightly closer to home – the one involving the Johnson family’s TV remote control and the E! Entertainment phenomenon Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

“I have a daily battle against the Kardashians, which my children love,” the Mayor, who has two sons and two daughters with his wife Marina Wheeler, tells this week’s Radio Times magazine.

“I believe in trying to understand and love the world around me but I watch five minutes and think what the f***’s going on.”
