The 'great success' of the Borat Subsequent Moviefilm has got the general public clambering for more of the Sacha Baron Cohen character.

On Tuesday evening, Cohen, as Borat, took part in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session where the character discussed many subjects in his typical broken English accent.

As usual with Borat, the subject turned to his thoughts on politics and as usual, he gave a thinly mocking take on US politics, after being asked what he thinks of the current political climate in America.

However, during the session, Borat was also asked his opinion on the current state of British politics, something which he hasn't done since his days on Da Ali G Show.

This is what the character had to say, paying particular attention to prime minister Boris Johnson.

Needless to say, we are going to guess that Cohen isn't a big fan of Johnson or how the British government has handled the Covid-19 pandemic.

Another highlight of the AMA was Borat confirming that he now has an Only Fans account, if that interests you...

As always, with Borat these things should be taken with a pinch of salt and we should always remember that the character is just a very-close-to-the-bone parody.

There is no previous evidence of Cohen, who is British, speaking out against Johnson but he does have a long-running feud with Trump and has previously criticised Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who he has accused of spreading 'Nazi propaganda'.
