20a62654-cca7-49cb-a643-3969a0d163ad-620x413The persuasiveness of Boris knows no bounds. Boris has been unleashed in the last few weeks at key London districts to swing the vote towards the Tories, and it seems they’ve been lapping it up. “Boris is now a preference to anyone else” that Conservative central office could send to help, including the prime minister, says one insider.

The increasingly windswept Bozza has even appealed to the staunchly liberal Guardian readers to come over the fence and join him.

Boris is now the Tories’ not-so-secret weapon. And when the hung parliament rocks up tomorrow, he will be there to pick up the pieces, no doubt…

Boris’ Jihadi headlines are not the whole story

Boris handBoris has hit the headlines again this morning, commenting on the mindset of the Jihadi threats recently. Boris has an eye for a soundbite, and he’s delivered several to get his article talked about. But if people actually read the article – published cleverly in The Sun, a right-wing often-outspoken tabloid – they’ll find that there’s a lot of thougthful analysis that may seen less extreme than the headings make out.

The Sun are also probably cock-a-hoop. The link above hits their paywall, and I’m sure there’s be a boost i signups today…

Have you read the article? Do you find it offensive?

Boris turns Good Samaritan

Boris ballBoris was on a plane this week, as we’re sure he is for many of his weeks. But this time, a drunken passenger was disturbing him. Boris sat next to him, tried to appease him, and then had to make a rapid withdrawal when things to took a turn for the awkward.

Here the full skinny on the episode.

Boris. What a guy.

UKIP converts are “nutty”, apparently

Never one to shy away from a topic, Boris let out a great literary bellow in his latest Telegraph column:  Any Conservatives thinking about joining rivals UKIP “must be utterly nuts”.

One of the great things about Boris is that he doesn’t talk like a politician. Some people claim this is “on purpose” – of course it is, and it’s a brilliant way to get people engaged in what sometimes are boring topics.

So in an effort to stem the tide of UKIP converts – he doesn’t want to end up leading a party of sizable delapidation, does he – he’s given a big shot across the bow.

We at Boriswatch Towers are looking forward to his speech at the Tory conference this week – we’ve got a mug of hot cocoa and popcorn set aside for the big event.

Boris is coming BACK!

borispmIt has long been trailed by Boriswatch, but the great man has confirmed – he will be seeking re-election as an MP in 2015. He’s going to “give it a crack”. We’re going to “throw a party in celebration”.

Now, seasoned Boriswatchers will know that the story doesn’t end there. He will use his virtually guaranteed political seat to launch a bid for leader of the Conservative Party, and then – Prime Minister?! Can we dream?

Boris: chance of being Prime Minister is “vanishing”

June 11, 2012

A bunch of OH NO’s echoed round Boriswatch Towers this week when we heard from Boris’s own mouth that his chance’s of becoming Prime Minister are fading. He told American chat show host David Letterman that “there are limits to the credulity of our audience”, before mulling over whether his astonishing hair is holding him back.

We’re reeling. There are no such limits to million’s of people’s support for you, Bozza. Next Stop PM! Ok good.
