D’Ancona Coins “BoJo-vians”

Declaring in tonight’s Standard that the race to succeed David Cameron is very much on,  Matt d’Ancona has coined the definitive word for Boris supporters: “BoJo-vians”.

Guido will be hereby adopting the phrase, but who should make the list?

        I was vaguely amused by boris. But the endless adulation is getting rather wierd.

        I don’t quite get how he gets a free ride with everyone round here, he’s rather too interested in his own control and prepared to spend taxpayers money in odd places I really don’t think he should.

        He only became Mayor of London due to a bus grudge. He could have just learned to ride a bike better.

        He’d beat both, despite all his faults and errors, he has the best relationship to ordinary punters on the street of any current politician. Even people who don’t vote Tory will listen to him, he would wipe the floor with Millibean, Dave will most likely lose to Millbean or have to form another coalition.

          I don’t think Boros could win outside of London – even in London his win over Livingstone was narrow. On the other hand Cameron did not win either, despite Gordon Brown’s unpopularity.

      What UKIP needs is yet another upper class twit in charge who is all in favour of the EU, amnesties and higher immigration. That should definitely get everyone outside London deserting the Tory party.

      Don’t discourage BoJo.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”
