REVEALED: Tape of What Boris Actually Said at Gay Pride Event

On LBC this morning Boris denied the charge that he joked “you can take your partner up the Arcelor” at a speech about gay pride last week.

“I did not say those words and I think any tape would readily confirm that.”

So what did he actually say? Guido has uncovered footage of the speech in question to clear up the mystery once and for all:

“…up the orbit”. All taken in jest by the audience…

    So what?

    Boris can get away with it and most probably murder too. Lesser men would be labelled as immature schoolboys. I see the gay priest phoning in also had a sense of humour bypass. It was a marvellous misquote though. The tiny gay minority currently wagging the straight dog are a humourless bunch.

    Mike Newland says:

    I trust Boris Johnson is personally participating in the full range of gay activities.

    He wants the votes does he not? Get stuck in Johnson.

    Boris truly is a funny guy. The audience laughed, it was a largely gay audience. Get a grip people.

    Why do blokes who shove up things each other’s orifice’s get so sensitive over a form of words ?? Just farseical farcical.

    rick says:

    The modern poitico will grovel to any group in order to get a vote – the Country will always come a poor second. Boris is also after the immigrant with his amnesty for illegals. I had hoped for more from Boris. Looks like there really is no alternative to UKIP.

    Zeitgeist is about rude physicists and offended minorities.

    Boris did not say up the Arcelor.

    Everyone in Chingford says:

    Boris is a dishonest twat. He’ll say anything to curry favour with his audience du jour and then go off and do the complete opposite.

    Boris is a humbug. He’ll say anything to anyone. Tyr reconciling his vote-seeking views to his different audiences – the Muslims, the gays, the victims of criminality, the people of Chingford (he lied about important local planning issues), the business community, the illegal immigrants, and you will find as much bullshit as Ken Livingstone ever came out with.

    Lord Sir Domly Dom says:

    I really cannot understand why we pander so much to such an insignificantly small abnormal minority.

    Wurzel says:

    I always considered ‘Normal’ to be as in the majority, though statistics these days may make us wonder if we are normal.

  27. 27
    Lord Sir Domly Dom says:

    Sad but true. Boris should stick to getting laughs on “HIGNFY” with his verbose baffoonery.

    Socialism Ate My Future says:

    I’ve got a grip or should that be a gripe?

    I’m sick to death of the anti caucasian, straight male bashing that the Politcos and media love to take part in, just to push their neo liberal credentials to the minority whilst neglecting the majority.

    Tay King-dePisse says:

    Doing the old Max Miller “let THEM fill in the blanks” ploy, eh? Max Miller, that old honey swockey molly ponce? (“Steady on, mate, he MAY have been a ponce, but I don’t know about ‘molly’– seemed manly enough to me…”)

    I would expect nothing less from a man named Johnson, whose own surname, heaven knows, is its own punch line half the time.

    Everyone in Chingford says:

    People who think that it is boring to know the truth about what a liar an elected politician is are really wasting their time coming on a site like this.

    Boris is a liar. No amount of trying to distract people from that fact will change it.

    Boris Tells Joke Hoping It Will Get Him Votes In Future.

    He also tells lies for the same reasons.

    Boris , “Give illegals amnesty.”

    What part of illegal do you not understand you foolish fat fumbling fop?

    Votes for passports.

    Is that The Arcelor of the Exchequer?

  38. 38
    FoI enquiry says:

    The assumption that entering the country illegally and remaining her are the only illegal things that illegal immigrants do is naive and for a politician the height of irresponsibility.

    Mrs.Every little helps... says:

    Yes, and I remember one wonderful time when Mr. Every Little Helps teated me to a very long trek up the Trossachs. And I can reveal that absolutely nothing was worn under his kilt.

    Richard Dawkins is a liberal appeaser, and gives far too much respect to nutters says:

    So, lets get this right. Bowing your head and muttering under your breath to a magical sky fairy, who nature and existence have no need for and has no evidence for in any shape or form, is normal and logical behaviour, and having people whose job it is to orchestrate the whole pantomime is an acceptable thing for a grown up to do, but being wired from birth to have sexual feelings for others of the same gender is….. an obscene profanity.

    And we wonder why the world is so f√cked up.

    Religious logic= oxymoron

    Job Nockey and Mug Runcher says:

    I think you are all just bi- curious, but ashamed.

    Old Tories used to flaunt their wealth and hide their homosexuality. New Tories do the reverse.

    Hoist with his own Petard methinks!

  47. 47
    Jack Ketch says:

    “Gay” was the preferred expression in the 18th century for back-street prostitutes of both sexes and of the clientele of “Molly Houses”. When male homosexual acts were made illegal after the continued scandals of the corruption of young boys by prominent members of society, the word became “code” for rent-boys while the “code” for their patrons was “confirmed bachelor”.
    Funnily enough the Sodomites, Buggers, pederasts and players of the pink oboe like to refer to those not in their club as “Straight” rather than “normal”–my dictionary still quotes the opposite of “Straight” as “Bent”.

    What Boris fails to understand is what Jack Jones the Butcher (Dads Army) has been saying for years. They don’t like it up them, they just don’t like it!

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
