Our blustering Boris appeals to some people precisely because he is a bumbling, humorous cartoon character! But do we really want Bugs Bunny running the country????
Here’s what the lunatic says (engaging mouth before brain!!):
[Female students went to university because they] have got to find men to marry.
A sexist piece of crap.
Voting Tory will cause your wife to have bigger breasts and increase your chances of owning a BMW M3.
Obviously voting Tory just puts wealthy people in charge of the country. The only way they get in is through lying – so I suppose this is par for the course.
“I’d like thousands of schools as good as the one I went to, Eton.”
I think that is the last thing I’d want any school to become – a way of drumming elitism and arrogance into a kid.
“I don’t see why people are so snooty about Channel 5. It has some respectable documentaries about the Second World War. It also devotes considerable airtime to investigations into lap-dancing, and other related and vital subjects.”
The sexism comes to the fore.
“I think I was once given cocaine but I sneezed so it didn’t go up my nose. In fact, it may have been icing sugar.”
The hypocrisy and lies screams.
“It was jolly nice. But apparently it is very different these days. Much stronger. I’ve become very illiberal about it. I don’t want my kids to take drugs”.
On using a mobile phone whilst driving:
“I don’t believe that is necessarily any more dangerous than the many other risky things that people do with their free hands while driving – nose-picking, reading the paper, studying the A-Z, beating the children, and so on.”
Very revealing and rather stupid.
“We should be helping all those who can to join the ranks of the super-rich, and we should stop any bashing or moaning or preaching or bitching and simply give thanks for the prodigious sums of money that they are contributing to the tax revenues of this country, and that enable us to look after our sick and our elderly and to build roads, railways and schools.”
Except, of course, they avoid paying taxes by using all the tax loopholes that the Tories have conveniently left open! But the Tory Party is there for the rich. They don’t want ordinary people getting uppity. They should know their place.
“There is no point in wasting any more moral or mental energy in being jealous of the very rich. They are no happier than anyone else; they just have more money. We shouldn’t bother ourselves about why they want all this money, or why it is nicer to have a bath with gold taps. How does it hurt me, with my 20-year-old Toyota, if somebody else has a swish Mercedes? We both get stuck in the same traffic.”
So the people dying of cold in winter, scratting around for food, using food banks, choosing between eating and heating, and committing suicide are just as happy as those tax-avoiding people swilling champagne on yachts in the Caribean.
“Times have been tough, the economy has been tough. But I want to bring forward a fantastic manifesto for taking the city forwards.”
That means – I want to give the money to the rich!
“I’m backing David Cameron’s campaign out of pure, cynical self-interest.”
Once a chancer always a chancer!
“London is a fantastic creator of jobs – but many of these jobs are going to people who don’t originate in this country.”
Those pesky immigrants!!
“The Americans were perfectly happy to go ahead and whack Saddam merely on the grounds that he was a bad guy, and that Iraq and the world would be better off without him; and so indeed was I.”
So let’s have lots of wars against all the bad guys!!
“It is possible to have a pretty good life and career being a leech and a parasite in the media world, gadding about from TV studio to TV studio, writing inconsequential pieces and having a good time.”
A summary of his overpaid life in newspapers.
“I can hardly condemn UKIP as a bunch of boss-eyed, foam-flecked Euro hysterics, when I have been sometimes not far short of boss-eyed, foam-flecked hysteria myself.”
There you have it – out of the mouths of fools.
“No one obeys the speed limit except a motorised rickshaw.”
So why was he making a fortune out of speeding fines???
“My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.”
Here’s our opportunity for the biggest disaster in British history – I present Boris the Wazook.
