Belated news reaches Boriswatch (via good egg Simon Fairthorne) that Boris was once assaulted with a bun. Yes, readers, it’s hard to believe, but bun-thrower Eleanor Hards chucked the missile at Boris during a dinner in 2002, and was swiftly reprimanded like the naughty woman she is. Here’s the lowdown from the Henley-on-Thames archive.

I have been informed that there is an interview with Boris in todays independent. It is in a Q and A style…with the questions asked by the public. Very good stuff – Boris Johnson – You Ask The Questions

Boris comes of Commons age

Simon Hoggart, a witty writer for The Guardian (and in my opinion a columnist second only to the estimable Boris), details Boris’s “coming of age” in the Commons: A Fragmentary First Draft of History for Boris. Well worth a read over a Marmite sandwich.

Boriswatch visitor Matthias has found the first reference at Amazon to Boris’s rumoured new fiction novel Seventy-Two Virgins. I, frankly, am bursting with excitement – can Boris do fiction as well as fact?

The Mirror visits Boriswatch

The Mirror visits Boriswatch – Pleasingly, this article on Boris’s Arts Manifesto appears to have quotes lifted directly from this very site! A brief mention would have been nice, but hey, at least we’re spreading the Boris word…

Boris gets it wrong – and right…

Boris Johnson and the art of getting it wrong – Boris unfortunately scores a lowly 7.5 out of 20 in an Arts test, but the article has a good point to make – whatever failings Boris makes can be laughed off as “typical Boris”. A shrewd move by the Tories…

Boris the realist

Last week in his Telegraph article, Boris quelled the rumours that had been exciting the media types in Westminster village and assure us that Tony Bliar (sic) is going nowhere. Of course he wont…certainly not early anyway. He’ll grin his way through to the next election. However, he is running scared on Iraq, Europe and […]

Boris does not depress your Boriswatch host. He of the estimable floppy-haired brow, the estimable wit, could never provoke even the faintest suicidal tendancies in yours truly. However, mindful of constituents and so forth, he has taken on the Vice-Chairmanship of a cross-party group on depression. “City living,” notes The Telegraph, “depresses one woman out […]
