"The UK is a great country committed with us to defend the values of democracy alongside Ukraine and which also needs to strengthen its energy sovereignty and win the battle against climate change."
French President Emmanuel Macron
What is it with British Prime Ministers recently not using their first names?
Boris is Johnson's middle name. His first name is Alexander - Alexander Johnson.
Elizabeth is Truss's middle name. Her first name is Mary - Mary Truss.
Maybe they don't go by their first names?
I don't; my parents wanted to call me by the name I go by, but nothing went good with it as a first name. It sort of 'go' as a second name so... my name is my middle.
Why's it matter?
