Boris Johnson had been hoping to celebrate his 100th day in office by finally taking the UK out of the EU but alas, he’ll have to settle for a game of apple bobbing and dressing up as whatever Old Etonians dress as on Halloween.
Boris Johnsons Rather Eventful And Slightly Controversial First 100 Days – In Numbers
To mark the occasion HuffPost UK has summarised his m̶a̶i̶n̶ ̶a̶c̶c̶o̶m̶p̶l̶i̶s̶h̶m̶e̶n̶t̶s̶ one accomplishment and various scandals and faux pas in a handy numerical list.
Oh, and there’s also a dog in the middle if you start to flag a bit. Here we go...21 Sacked RebelsWe begin with one of Johnson’s most ruthless moves to date – the sacking of 21 Tory MPs who dared to join a cross-party alliance to block a no-deal Brexit back in September.
Winston Churchill’s grandson, Nicholas Soames, was among those who got the chop, as were a number of Tory grandees, including Ken Clarke and Oliver Letwin. 
But demonstrating that the PM possesses both carrots and sticks, ten of the rebels were allowed to rejoin this week as a reward for supporting the government.1 Brother Family affairs rarely enter the Commons so when they do you can tell something serious is up.
And so it was that on 5 September, a fraternal fissure broke into the open and Jo Johnson, the PM’s brother, resigned as a minister and said he would step down as an MP as he was “torn between family loyalty and the national interest”.It’s been an honour to represent Orpington for 9 years & to serve as a minister under three PMs. In recent weeks I’ve been torn between family loyalty and the national interest - it’s an unresolvable tension & time for others to take on my roles as MP & Minister. #overandout— Jo Johnson (@JoJohnsonUK) September 5, 2019While at first glance this looked like a noble decision based on morals and values, it should be remembered that Jo had accepted the position in a government willing to accept a no-deal Brexit, even though he had been a vocal supporter of holding a second referendum.
So public sympathy was somewhat limited.Boris Johnson doesn’t even have a brother. That’s just photos of him when he brushes his hair.— David Hughes (@david8hughes) September 5, 20190 BrexitsAs you may have noticed, today is the 31 October and Boris Johnson is not dead in a ditch.
Despite infamously pledging this would be his preferred fate over asking the EU for another Brextension and repeating the date over and over like a malfunctioning talking calendar, the PM failed in his bid for a Halloween Brexit.
Just three days before, Johnson was forced to go to Brussels and ask for an extension to January 31 next year, which they duly granted.Boris Johnson Sept 5: I'd rather be dead in a ditch than agree to a Brexit extensionBoris Johnson October 28: I'm agreeing to a Brexit extension— Sven Henrich (@NorthmanTrader) October 28, 2019But the anger and frustration of the PM and Brexiteers across the country paled in significance to the cold terror that spread across those who suddenly remembered this tweet from earlier in the month...We are out on 31 Oct. If I am proved wrong I will drink a pot of tea naked in the Apprentice losers cafe with Farages face on each nipple. https://t.co/dMR9MJjADT— Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) October 4, 2019At the time of writing this has thankfully not occurred. 1 General ElectionYes, you will probably have heard by now that we’re having an election on 12 December, Johnson’s 142nd day in office. So will his second 100 days be more successful than his first?
Well that’s very difficult to divine at the moment but it’s certainly a gamble for the PM – and Jeremy Corbyn who has enthusiastically backed it. 
A prediction by polling guru Professor Sir John Curtice states there will be “a record number of non-Conservative and non-Labour MPs” elected.
This could mean the SNP and the Lib Dems taking seats from Labour and the Tories. “We could have more than 100 MPs that do not belong to either of the other two parties,” Curtice said.
The latest polling backs this up.1 DogHERE IT IS!!!
Without doubt (well, probably) the most popular decision Johnson has made during his first 100 days was to get a Downing Street dog.
Just look...Bizarrely however, Dilyn as he was named, has not been seen in public since but a No.10 source told HuffPost UK last night that he is, and we quote, “hunting down leads”.1 Commons Brexit Victory Now while there’s no denying this victory was indeed a huge win for Johnson, the last section provides crucial context that dampens its achievement somewhat. 
But before we get to that, let’s give the PM his dues and dedicate a couple of lines to it.
After his predecessor Theresa May had unsuccessfully tried so many times over three fruitless years, Johnson finally managed to get a majority of MPs to back a Brexit plan.
Pro-Leave Labour MPs and hardline Tory Brexiteers joined forces to vote for the Withdrawal Agreement Bill at its second reading by 329 votes to 299, a majority of 30. Some 19 Labour MPs backed the legislation.
But this was almost immediately followed by another defeat after MPs rejected his fast-track Commons timetable. 2 ScandalsJennifer Arcuri
Johnson has faced accusations of failing to declare a conflict of interest after American tech entrepreneur Jennifer Arcuri was given public money and access to trade trips during his time as London Mayor.
The potential scandal took a bizarre turn when both parties refused to clarify details of their relationship or whether or not Johnson had taken a swing on a pole dancing pole in Arcuri’s home.
Yes, you read that right.
Arcuri appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain and said Johnson had been to her Shoreditch office and home “five, ten, a handful of times” and described him as “a really good friend”.
“It’s really not anyone’s business what private life we had.”
When asked, Arcuri said that her office was in her Shoreditch flat.
Arcuri, a technology entrepreneur and former model, said that Johnson “asked me to show him a few things” on the pole she had in her London home.
Describing the kit as a “conversation starter”, she said she and Johnson “always had a laugh about it”.
“The pole stood in the living room, yes, he saw the pole.”
When asked directly whether Johnson had ever used the pole, Arcuri said: “I’m never going to tell you that.”
Charlotte Edwardes
At the end of September, Downing Street was forced to deny allegations that Johnson squeezed the thigh of a journalist under the table during a private lunch in 1999. 
Writing her first column for The Sunday Times, Charlotte Edwardes said: “I’m seated on Johnson’s right; on his left is a young woman I know.
“More wine is poured; more wine is drunk. Under the table I feel Johnson’s hand on my thigh. He gives it a squeeze.
“His hand is high up my leg and he has enough inner flesh beneath his fingers to make me sit suddenly upright.”
After the lunch, she said she had confided in the young woman who was sitting on the other side of Johnson, who told her: “Oh God, he did exactly the same to me.”
But a Number 10 spokesman said: “This allegation is untrue.”
Following the denial, Edwardes tweeted: “If the prime minister doesn’t recollect the incident then clearly I have a better memory than he does.”If the prime minister doesn’t recollect the incident then clearly I have a better memory than he does https://t.co/pbcLJThkqP— Charlotte Edwardes (@chedwardes) September 29, 20193 Linguistic Faux PasOK, let’s spell them out.Man up.Boris JohnsonTARGET: Jeremy Corbyn
CONTEXT: Last week Johnson told Sky News that Labour was “split from top to bottom” over the issue, adding: “Time for Corbyn – man up. Let’s have an election on December 12.”
REACTION:Pubescent Nincompoop https://t.co/oI3F7nRWxQ— David Lammy (@DavidLammy) October 25, 2019Girly swot.Boris JohnsonTARGET: David Cameron
CONTEXT: Johnson wrote that David Cameron is a “girly swot” on a private cabinet paper back in August but only revealed last month.
REACTION: The #GirlySwot jumper....designed by @jamesmobbs +me, you can now get from @balconyshirts.£5 of each sold will go to @Rubiescharity — helping to build confidence in young girls.Just to reiterate - I am not making any money from this! https://t.co/XmnvJmlZrXpic.twitter.com/KKRosTCvlp— Steph McGovern (@stephbreakfast) October 25, 2019Hemp-smelling crusties.Boris JohnsonTARGET: Extinction Rebellion
CONTEXT: Earlier this Johnson ridiculed Extinction Rebellion protestors as annoying “nose-ringed”, “hemp-smelling” “crusties”.
In a broadside at the demonstrators who started a fortnight of disruption in central London, the prime minister used a speech praising Margaret Thatcher to make plain his disdain for the group’s tactics.
REACTION: Boris Johnson's father joins the climate protesters his son dubbed "uncooperative crusties" https://t.co/sLd7xANeZYpic.twitter.com/aPDOhQsDOd— TIME (@TIME) October 9, 201912 Commons Defeats12.
