Following revelations by Tory leadership front runner, Boris Johnson, that his hobby is building model buses, Lego has announced a new range of models inspired by the prime ministerial hopeful.
Asked, in an increasingly rare interview, if he had any hobbies, Mr Johnson looked confused before stumbling about a bit and eventually claiming that he makes “models of buses to relax”.
While pundits in the mainstream media have been left puzzled as to why Mr Johnson would claim that making models of buses is his hobby over the more obvious choices of being a politician or a journalist, The Post Truth Post can exclusively reveal that Johnson is in the final stages of a deal with Lego.
The Danish toy manufacturer will release a range of “Boris Bus” model kits later this year, and it appears the future PM has inadvertently let the cat out of the bag.
Spokesman Janis Fishlove told us, “We are always looking to collaborate with franchises that fit the Lego values of life-long childhood, fantasy, and wild imagination.
“Boris has an outstanding track record in all three areas, and over the years he has epitomised them all in bus form.”
The new Lego models will include The Olympic Bus which comes with a Boris mini-figure complete with messy hair and Union Jack, a Bendy Bus that won’t fit on the Lego streets and a Brexit bus which will allow children of all ages to write a wish on its side.
However, Lego movie fans will be disappointed. A planned Lego Boris biopic has been shelved due to the cost of re-filming it each time Johnson changes his position on something.
