Boris and Dave Go Head to Head

Well on the airwaves at least. While the Prime Minister was reacting to the latest grim economic news on LBC, the Mayor of London was able to grandstand on the Daybreak sofa. Boris informed viewers that he doesn’t want Dave’s job just yet, saying he does not want to be PM “at the moment”. He said it is “inconceivable” that he would get the job. “That’s what they said about you being Mayor” replied Kate Garraway. Quite…

Hollande Left With Oeuf on Face

It turns out President Hollande was all mouth and no trousers last week as he tried to mock Team GB’s medal haul:

“We don’t talk of money, we talk of gold. The British have rolled out a red carpet for French athletes to win medals. I thank them very much for that, but the competition is not over. We will put the French medals into the Europe pot, so that the British will be happy to be European.”

Sixteen Team GB golds later and the cat seems to have got Hollande’s tongue  - Britain now has double the number of golds won by the French and are miles ahead of them in the overall medal table.

Boris twisted the knife this morning, delivering the sort of line that Dave dreams of being able to say:

Well, M le Président, mettez-ça dans votre pipe et fumez-le! Bien je jamais,eh!”

Absolument.

Boris Calls BS on Corby Run Rumour

Surprise surprise:

The fact that speculation even turned in his direction shows how far the Mayor has come this summer.

Soon, but not yet…

Broadsheet Boris Bounce

If Oscar Wilde is right that there “… is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about” then the Olympics has made things worse for Cameron and better for Boris.

Every single broadsheet this morning is talking about and analysing the prospects for Boris replacing Dave in Downing Street…

As always, you read it here ( Boris2020.org ) first on May 4

Charles Moore summarises the Tory leadership prospects…

“Cameron is the moderniser, Boris is the post-moderniser.”

BoJo Shines In China

Boris Mania has gone truly global as the London Mayor’s heroic zip wire triumph saw him gain a huge wave of new supporters…in China. His Weibo account – the Chinese twitter – gained some 12,000 followers while his latest fans posted messages of support: “Such a loveable Mayor…I love his spontaneity, not pretentious at all!” Somehow Guido thinks the Chinese adulation of London’s favourite politician is more genuine than the endorsement they give to their own leaders…

Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
