Boris Hits Back at Shapps Attack

The stop Boris campaign is gearing up. Following on from John Major’s intervention this week, Grant Shapps has slammed this summer’s Boris Mania. The Tory chairman dismisses the London Mayor’s credentials to make it to No.10. Shapps sniped that Boris didn’t have the “right set of skills” to become PM, and when asked the question directly replied with a firm: “No”. Bojo has now hit back:

All on the day that Shapps was reported to the police in a classic Labour kite that, without a “victim” of these alleged copyright breaches or plagiarism coming forward, will go nowhere. Presumably Michael Green has all the qualities required to run the country though…

    Didnt Boris call coalition policy on benefit caps “social cleansing ” ?

    If so , how does this make him more tory than Dave?

      “Shapps” actually sounds like a German pronunciation of that arse-less article of apparel that a gentleman of a particular sexual orientation with certain predilections might wear to a “leather-trade” boo*zer, or so one would gather from watching Pride Parades. Not sayin’, just sayin’.

    I like Boris & he is popular but he is not PM material – need a bit more gravitas for that. Sometimes you need to appear solemn/serious which Dave does quite well (just shame about content) – rather than fighting each other they need to be confronting Labour/BBC and stop them setting agenda

      I do not see why Boris should not be of the right material.

      We need a thrusting and upright PM, surely?

        Hmmm the right material for a PM…

        Public school, with probably a heteroflexible background.

        Job in the city gifted by Daddy

        Ugly older token wife of some forlorn diplomat or fox botherer from the Chilterns

        Massively out of touch

        Still thinks there’s an Empire

        A level of incompetence that is only usually found in inbred families, such as the German one here

        Yep, I think Cameroon, Bojo, Gideon and Gove the slaverer all posess these qualities.

        Makes it kind of hard to choose …

        Potential PMs should not be panalists on HIGNFY – also what happens when all the stories about threatening to have journalist beaten up for writing story about his mate. Its fine when he’s just loveable old Boris but when BBC get in full Labour electioneering mode I think it could cause lost votes.

      Desperate Times...friends are few and far between says:

      Never underestimate the ability of the Tory party to throwaway the chance of gaining or staying in power…after all they’ve been at it for the past 22 years….the problem and the reason for all the ruckus is that THEY believed that Cameron was a winner…..their Tony Blair…….. and could lead them to 3 consecutive terms instead of barely winning one against an opponent who was already finished before he went into the 2010 election ……………….now they are desperate and will turn to ANYONE who they think may stand a chance of even remaining the largest party in 2015(they’ve abandoned ALL hope of winning a majority)

        The ability of Cameron and Co to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory is unsurpassed in the political history of this country. They are if nothing else consistent in their misreading of the public mind.

    The perfect scenario 2013, and the most likely

    • Zac Floppy Hair resigns his Richmongs constituency
    • Boris MP takes his Richmongs seat.
    • London Mayoral election re-run – Zac Floppy Hair loses to Ken

    Very true of course. London mayor is a personality contest. Did Livingstone have any chance of becoming Labour leader ffs!
    Boris is local level jester who was far better than the alternative, Livingslime. Even in dumbed down Britain, He’s got no chance at national level, least of all with his alleged philandering.

    This blog made it’s name by NOT spouting the same narratives from the MSM village. Yet, these days, this blog is lazily regurgatating phoney baloney lines from the dying dead-tree press.

    Boris has about as much chance of becoming leader of the Conservative Party as UKIP have of polling more than the Lib Dems and even getting an MP at the next election.

    The Tories never learn from their mistakes; division and back-biting midterm!! Now some dimwits are talking about womaniser Boris as a potential PM, what utter bullshit. It is not surprising the jarheads of the Tory right would vote for Boris the Mop but the country would die laughing before putting an X against his name In a general election.

    GO GO Tory Party, implode once again into the abyss!!!
