Home Secretary Sajid Javid apparently refers to himself as “The Sajid”
What do Home Secretary Sajid Javid and Dwayne Johnson have in common?
No, they are not both former WWE Champions, or both stars on the Fast & Furious franchise. Only Johnson has done those things.
It turns out that Javid, just like The Rock, likes to refer to himself in the third person in public.
According to a report in The Sun, rival Conservative ministers say that the Home Secretary goes around calling himself "The Sajid".
People who speak in the third person about themselves:
- Gollum from Lord of the Rings
- The Rock
- Mr Miyagi from the Karate Kid
- Francesco Bernoulli from Cars 2

A cabinet source told the newspaper: "He uses phrases like, 'Just you watch what The Sajid is going to do about this', or 'The Saj will sort that out'. It’s bizarre. I think he’s losing the plot".
Javid has been one of the top contenders to replace Theresa May as leader of the Conservative Party.
This week, he requested the Royal Navy be sent to the English Channel to tackle migrant crossings.
