Boris Johnson Net Worth $2 Million
Boris Johnson spent his childhood with three siblings, his father, Stanley Johnson, who is also a politician and author, and his mother, Charlotte Johnson Wahl, an artist; he is the grandson of Turkish journalist Ali Kemal. When he was a baby, the family moved to England, and Boris attended a preparatory boarding school, Ashdown House in East Sussex, where he earned a King’s Scholarship to study at Eton College. While there, he started writing for the students’ newspaper, and became the editor. He then received a scholarship to study at Balliol College, Oxford, from which he graduated with an upper second-class degree in Ancient Literature and Classical Philosophy.
Before he became a politician, Boris was a journalist. He started his career in 1987 writing for the prestigious British newspaper “The Times”; however, he quit this position in 1994 and joined “The Daily Telegraph”. He worked as assistant editor from 1994 until 1999, when he left the newspaper and joined “The Spectator” magazine. He stayed there until 2005, working as the editor, which highly increased his net worth. He then returned to “The Daily Telegraph”, and ever since has been a contributor to the paper.
His political career began in 2001, when he ran to become a parliament member for Henley. He was successful and stayed in that position until 2008, which contributed a lot to his net worth, but it also helped him build his career. In 2008 he participated in elections for the Mayor of London, and eventually won, defeating incumbent Ken Livingstone. Boris’ also won re-election in 2012, defeating Livingstone again. During his stint as the Mayor of London, the overall size of Boris’ net worth increased by a large margin. He stepped down from the position on the 9th May 2016, as in 2015, Boris became the Member of Parliament for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, which further increased his net worth. Most recently, he has championed the cause of the UK leaving the European Union, which was carried by referendum in June 2016.
Apart from his political career, Boris is also recognized as an author, publishing 11 books so far, including “Friends, Voters, Countrymen” (2001), “Seventy-Two Virgins” (2004), “The Dream Of Rome” (2006), “The Perils Of The Pushy Parents: A Cautionary Tale” (2007), and his latest book “The Churchill Factor” (2014), which have also added a lot to his overall net worth.
