Remember that feeling on your first day of school? Despite the butterflies in your belly, you wolf down your bowl of Frosties, plaster your head with wet look gel from Superdrug and ask your mum to do your tie before walking to catch the bus.
Now, most of us absorbed that crucial tie knowledge bestowed on us by our mothers at the age of 11. But not Boris Johnson.
Seemingly, the foreign secretary has employed his mother to do his tie every day since. Today, however, it looks like she's called in sick.
Haha what does Boris Johnson look like!? The fool! Who told him that's how you do a tie... pic.twitter.com/Aoe6e2oNR5

Just look at the state of that.
I can imagine him making numerous attempts to tie it backstage, too nervous and embarrassed to tell people he's never done it in his life, before settling for that.
You remember the end of The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King when the film just doesn't end? That's Boris Johnson's tie. You know when Paul McCartney turns up at sporting ceremonies uninvited and performs a seemingly never-ending rendition of 'Hey Jude'? That's Boris Johnson's tie. In fact, you could hang Boris Johnson from the top of Big Ben using his tie, and his feet would still be firmly on the Westminster pavement.
Twitter, as you can expect, went off.
Boris Johnson is the modern day Pinocchio. Every time he lies his tie gets longer. pic.twitter.com/JOQGE40174

Boris Johnson speaks about the British people "taking back control", but this is a man that clearly can't even control his own tie length.

Does @BorisJohnson wear his tie like that to cover a little accident? #BBC #Marr pic.twitter.com/ajHTNTh076

Boris Johnson is the secretary of state for foreign affairs, and an endless source of banter.
