The British Prime Minister and his umbrella seem to have a complicated relationship.
One scene now causes laughter on the net.
Surrey - And sometimes the biggest challenge in a politician's day-to-day life is suddenly an umbrella. This is what happened with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. At the inauguration ceremony of a memorial in Surrey for police officers who died on duty, the politician lost control of the item. The situation was recorded on video and spread on social media - and causes laughter there. Johnson himself is notorious for his sometimes shirt-sleeved demeanor.
It was actually a serious occasion and the invitation was held on Wednesday.
The footage shows Premier Johnson, who is seated next to Prince Charles.
To protect themselves from the rain, both men have an umbrella in hand.
While the Royal holds it in his hand, apparently relaxed, the head of the Conservative Party gets into a mess.
When trying to pass the umbrella, it closed spontaneously at first - and shortly afterwards it was caught by a gust of wind and folded upwards.
Boris Johnson struggles with his umbrella - "Can the government buy him a new one?"
After a brief struggle with the stubborn umbrella, Johnson finally prevailed. But the scene has been captured and was broadcast by Sky News, among others. The little incident did not escape Prince Charles either. You can see and hear how both men laugh. The video clip also makes people laugh on Twitter.
“I know everyone is divided about Boris.
I like him myself.
But you have to say it's good entertainment, ”comments one person.
“This is one of the reasons Boris is still popular despite the events of the past few years.
I won't believe if you tell me that you didn't laugh when you saw that! ”Reads another comment.
And someone else wants Johnson to get a new umbrella.
The head of government had already had problems with a statement on the tougher crackdown on crime that day.
“Can the government buy him a new one?” Demands the Twitter user.
