One Surrey man has made his feelings about the prime minister crystal clear as he redirected Liar.co.uk to Boris Johnson’s Wikipedia page.
Mark Rofe said: “Initially I wanted to register Liar.co.uk and put a website up with all the lies our prime minister has told, but the domain was already taken, and I realised listing all of Boris’s lies could end up becoming a full-time job.”
Instead, the 32-year-old found that the domain was available to rent for £299 per month, so he shared his brainwave with Twitter.
I keep looking at the domain https://t.co/q4TBMJRkdp & see that it’s available to rent for £299 a month.

She said: “I got involved with Liar.co.uk because lying to the public is one of the fundamental ‘don’ts’ of public relations and strategic communications. Transparency and openness are key to building trust with any public, whether you’re a sole trader or a FTSE100 company, and most definitely in the highest public office in our country.
“Without trust you cannot hope to lead, and Boris Johnson has shown time and time again that he is not to be trusted. When someone shows you who they are, believe them. The people see you, prime minister.”
Rofe, the founder of Christmastrees.co.uk added: “I wanted to do something that makes a serious point but in a humorous way, hopefully this achieves that. I’d like to rent the domain until he leaves office, which hopefully won’t be for much longer now.”
This isn’t the first time domain names have been used to poke fun at politicians.
Following the 2020 US Presidential election, Loser.com redirected to Donald Trump’s Wikipedia page.
According to the Evening Standard, Loser.com was also previously linked to former US president Barack Obama, actor Charlie Sheen, social media site Reddit, musician Kanye West, politician Al Gore, and former South Carolina governor Jim Hodges.
