By their words shall ye know them! When Boris Johnson was Mayor, he won rave reviews globally for the super efficient way he hoiked London out of recession, made it the no. 1 city in the world and beat Ken Livingstone and a 19% swing to Labour twice.
The Germans extolled him as the man with huge charisma, who got the job done.
“Boris, the picky Germans believe, understands the exercise of power, and how to win elections. While protecting the poor, Boris is smart enough to back business and go for growth, and, says Die Welt, he knocks spots off the Mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit, who is flamboyant and fun, but achieves very little.” See link first para.

There has been a definite shift in the Brussels deadlock, as wily Theresa May played an ace. She pointed out that carry on the way that they are, and she could be removed and replaced by their worst nightmare! The fear that Boris Johnson will be next PM shook EU chiefs so badly, they dropped their silly posturing in a flash, to become Mrs. May’s new best friends.
Oddschecker shows that Boris is in the lead to follow Mrs. May as Tory leader and next PM. EU chiefs know that in Boris, the UK has a superbrain, up to every dodgy manoeuvre in a flash, who will not shift an inch where British interests are concerned. Like every other Brexiteer, he will fight for our rights like a tiger. Months ago, he suggested cutting off EU payments and his speciality is putting the boot in if this country is being mucked about. Continue reading

Brexiteers are heavily outnumbered in Parliament and in the government, but so principled and brave are the politicians fighting for us, with such outstanding fighting spirit, I believe there is no doubt that Brexit, as we voted for it, will prevail.
I have been deeply moved to see politicians whom I knew little about fight like tigers for democracy, social justice and the rights of ordinary people. This is what politics is supposed to be about. It is inspiring stuff and restores my faith in politicians. Continue reading

Boris has just topped polls of Con Home, You Gov and Oddschecker to follow May as Tory Leader. Then the Sun poll came to the same result.
Oddschecker is hugely bullish on Boris’s chances.
The former London mayor was 5/1 to land the top job in the Tory party just 48 hours ago, however one bookmaker has slashed him to 3/1 to takeover when Thersea May departs. It’s not just the bookies who believe Johnson’s chances to take charge are increasing, the punters also fancy his chances. Continue reading
Boris Johnson wrote an article in the Daily Telegraph, warning against the danger of war with Libya.
Boris Johnson’s brilliant, inspirational and moving speech was without doubt the highlight of a horribly lacklustre conference. A standing ovation and again he is the darling of the grass roots. Boris began:
As our hearts go out to Las Vegas today we are reminded once again of the attack that took place here only a few months ago, on innocent and music-loving young people. And if there is a message to our American friends it is this: that they will come through it and they will come back from it stronger. Continue reading

In an ugly display of fascist style behaviour, Steven Norris and Philip Hammond ganged up on Boris Johnson yesterday, threatening him with the sack if he didn’t stay silent over Brexit.
Bully boy Norris even said the 1922 Committee would end Boris’s career! Oh are they running the country and Brexit, Steve, I didn’t realise! In my innocence, I thought that the EU Referendum was the chance of voters to decide whether we left or stayed in the EU! We were told, in Parliament, by the then PM our decision would be final. But it’s the 1922 committee running May and making the decisions, is it. Forgive me, my mistake! Continue reading
