Just how dishevelled is BoJo?

London Mayor Boris Johnson is famed for his dishelevelled appearance, his apparent disarray as always been his visual signature. But I have wondered whether it actually is a contrivance, or based on a more compelling desire for comfort over presentation.

A week ago I was on assignment to document his first big speech for the campaign for the UK to leave the EU at the referendum in June. During a few moments of looking around I noticed his shoes.

You don’t fake that. Boris wants to be comfortable.
