A Surrey man has made his feelings for the Prime Minister clear by redirecting Liar.co.uk to Boris Johnson’s Wikipedia page.

Mark Rofe said: “Initially I wanted to register Liar.co.uk and set up a website with all the lies our Prime Minister has told, but the domain was already taken, and I realized that listing all of Boris’ lies might end up being a full-time job.

Instead, the 32-year-old discovered the estate was available to rent for £299 a month, so he took to Twitter to share his idea.

After sharing the idea on social media, a few people pitched in to share the cost and the redirect was created.

Citing past controversies such as Johnson’s allegations lied to the queen in 2019, the alleged parties throughout the pandemic, questions about PPE contracts, and the apartment renovation debacle, Planells commented, “The liars are always discovered, and the receipts are there.”

She said: “I became involved with Liar.co.uk because lying to the public is one of the fundamental ‘do’s’ in public relations and strategic communications. Transparency and openness are key to building trust with any audience, whether you are an individual entrepreneur or a FTSE100 company, and most certainly in our country’s highest civil service.

“Without trust you cannot hope to lead, and Boris Johnson has shown time and time again that he should not be trusted. When someone shows you who they are, believe them. People see you, Prime Minister .

Rofe, the founder of sapinsdenoel.fr added, “I wanted to do something that makes a serious point but in a humorous way, hopefully it gets there. I’d like to lease the estate until he leaves office, which hopefully won’t be for very long now.

This is not the first time domain names have been used to mock politicians.
