Bald Boris: Mayor of London Losing Locks

As Guido’s Sun column revealed yesterday, the mop-topped Mayor of London is going bald. Brand Boris is reliant on his giant blond bouffant, yet his appearance on last week’s Question Time revealed a growing bald patch at the back and a deliberate effort to comb his locks forward. It was all a bit Donald Trump:

The age old rule in British politics is that bald men in the television age do not beat rivals with a full head of hair. Think Tony Blair versus William Hague, Iain Duncan Smith and Michael Howard, nor can we forget Maggie versus Kinnock, in every election the slap-head loses. Could Boris be a modern day version of Samson? Better get shift that leadership campaign up a gear…

      My prose is dubious but:

      ‘Better get shift that leadership campaign up a gear…’

      Did some of Boris’ hair get stuck in the keyboard, or is the hair-balled phrasing a very permed irony ?

        From that: Boris:

        i) Orange Juice applied twice a day. Juice from an Orange, not Kia-Ora.
        - Results within two weeks.

        ii) Ground red pepper: Apply similar way to Orange Juice. Meant to stimulate blood flow. Blood flow is good for hair growth.

        iii) Vitamin E Supplements.

        vi) Ch!nese Herbs: As yet unknown which, but a trip to Leicester Square pharmacist may be worth while. The Ch!nese approach should cleanse the liver and promote blood flow.

          Point of Information says:

          Red Pepper would mean Paprika.

          If anyone wants to give Boris a Cayenne makeover though, please ensure you have video camera and appropriate Yakety Sax to dub onto the ensuing footage.

          Also: Boris: Sunny D is not Orange Juice.

      if there is a worthwhile issue then it is the judges who look reasonable.
      The Rt. Hon. Sir John Chilcot, GCB, PC is a Privy Counsellor and former civil servant.
      .
      neither he is right or honourable.
      Sir means head. So he sat on our head and was given the benefit of the doubt.

      The issue is Privy Counsellors. They cannot be trusted. But then if so, no one in public life can be trusted.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
