If he hadn’t been a member of the British establishment and insulated by connections, power and wealth from any consequences he might have deserved some respect.
As it is, just Bullingdon behaviour; rich yobbism.

NEXT FEW MONTHS AT LEAST: Watch Boris the fucking racist Bertie Wooster learn, laugh and grow as he bumblewhoopsies around the world.
Bertie Wooster is not a racist. If you read the books you discover that he has a low opinion of the House of Lords, doesn’t think much of the politically ambitious, and despite being a seeming idiot has more sense than his friends - as Wodehouse himself pointed out. The joke, in effect, is that Bertie is often Robin to Jeeves’s Batman, helping Jeeves deal with people’s problems.
If Boris Johnson had made it into a Wodehouse book, Jeeves and Bertie would have had him sunk in mud, up a tree hiding from a cat, or having to grovel after making false accusations.
[edit - yes, @Beanolini, I was thinking of Lord Spode [correction: Lord Sidcup, though Bertie at one point calls him Lord Spodecup], referenced in my last clause. But he’s not the only one.]
