I have heard several times on the BBC the phrase "role model" applied to Boris Johnson (the implication being that he is a poor role model). An example is the first question on BBC’s Any Questions (at about 1 min 50 sec): "What kind of role model is our Prime Minister setting for young people?"

Really though? Really? Do young people turn to politicians in search for a role model? And if they do, don’t they decide for themselves whom they like and might want to imitate?
