Donald Trump And Boris Johnson Street Art Predicted The Future

Remember this? The image of Boris Johnson and Donald Trump in a toe-curling clinch first appeared in May 2016.

That was before the EU Referendum, before the Presidential election, and before the last general election. To many, it seemed like the nightmare that could never happen.

Now, it has — if not the saliva-swap, then at least its symbolism.

The street art, which first appeared in Bristol but was soon copied in London, was the work of anti-Brexit campaign group We Are Europe. At the time, spokesperson Harriet Kingaby said: "People need to look at this image and think, 'is this the future I want'?"

Whatever we might have thought, it's a future that has now become a reality, with Donald Trump in the White House and Boris Johnson fumbling the keys to Number 10.

We can only hope that street art does not continue to foresee the new Prime Minister's career.
