Boris Johnson will ask world leaders at this weekend’s G7 summit for help setting up his new Amazon Fire Stick.
Mr Johnson has described the failed Fire Stick as an “international crisis” tweeting that he’d planned to spend the bank holiday weekend catching up on Stranger Things on Netflix.
Johnson’s partner, Carrie Symonds, is thought to have given him the voice-activated dongle as a moving in gift when the couple took up residence in 10 Downing Street earlier this month.
Sources say that Johnson has made several attempts to insert his peripheral but has so far been unsuccessful despite Symonds' suggestion that he try the HDMI port located around the back.
“Catastrophe, mayhem, disaster,” Johnson told reporters.
“Getting my dongle up and running is the most pressing issue facing my government today and must be addressed at once.
“The Cabinet are coming to Chequers to binge-watch season three of Stranger Things, and I can’t get that naughty minx Alexa to do a thing I say.”
Both Johnson and former prime minister David Cameron are said to be big fans of the hit Netflix series.
Stranger Things tells the story of the devastating consequences for a small community, stuck in the 1980s, when a portal to an alternate dimension is inadvertently opened.
Cameron recently told guests at an after dinner speaking engagement that had the show been aired a few months earlier he would never have called the Brexit referendum.
