Boris on Best Behaviour…

Boris-mania is brewing in Brum. With the Mayor on his way, out-riders close to the team are pre-smoothing feathers:

He’s going to be on best behaviour, but then he always says that.”

No pressure then.

    Dave should swallow his pride and let Boris have the crowd cheering him to the rafters.

    Nothing has the bedwetters breaking out in a cold sweat quite like being reminded how Boris snatched London from under their noses.

    Cameron and Johnson and Miliband and Clegg all agree on the destination for UK PLC, it is just the route to take where they differ in opinion.

    Enough. UKIP for me – even if it gives us Balls and Miliband.

    He’s got a job to do in London. Tories need to win there in order to get outright maj. next time, so why not let him get on with it there- even if he has to let the MPs there take the credit.

    All need to see and play the long game here.

    Nice one Sandra. So, what you are saying in effect is that you are a Labour supporter. Either that, or you don’t give a toss about this Country.

    With a career in finance with Bank of America and Credit Suisse, Scrapbook would have assumed that Wiltshire MP Claire Perry would know the difference between debt and deficit. Apparently not.

    On Radio 5 this morning:

    Victoria Derbyshire: What is puzzling is, under Labour debt equals bad, under the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats national debt equals?
    Claire Perry: We have cut Labour’s deficit Victoria by a quarter
    Derbyshire: I’m talking about debt
    Perry: Well it is the same thing
    Derbyshire: It is not the same thing

    Tories have no chance of outright majority next time. They needed the boundary commission changes to reduce the number of Scottish seats. Being twats they were prepared to put their buddies in the Lords before a chance of a majority in 2015 and now they are reaping the consequences.

    Boris has one big advantage if he wanted to make his move that is he hasn’t been in this government, I wonder if that was his plan, do another 31/2 years as mayor, Cammers loeses the 2015 election, Lie bore get in but with 15-20 overall majority, Libdems virtually gone back to 10mps Liebore fall flat on their faces trying to implementing already tried and failed policies, Liebore due to a reducing majority are forcced to calla GE and Boris walks into no. 10

    Probably lifted from Wikipedia as below
    Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson (born 19 June 1964) is a British Conservative Party politician, who was first elected Mayor of London in 2008. Initially coming to public attention as a journalist, he was previously editor of The Spectator magazine (1999-2005) and the Member of Parliament for Henley from the 2001 general election to 2008.

    Johnson was educated at Primrose Hill Primary School, the European School of Brussels, Ashdown House School, Eton College, and Balliol College, Oxford, where he read Literae Humaniores.[3] He began his career in journalism with The Times and later moved on to The Daily Telegraph, where he became Assistant Editor. During his period in the House of Commons, Johnson became one of the most conspicuous politicians in the country. He has also written several books.

    Under Michael Howard, Johnson served on the Conservative front bench as the Shadow Minister for the Arts (April-November 2004). When David Cameron was elected leader of the Conservative Party in 2005, Johnson was re-appointed to the front bench as Shadow Minister for Higher Education and resigned as Editor of The Spectator.
