Who is Johnson (Senior) trying to fool?

This does indeed look like Johnson pere trying to prepare the way for Johnson fils to become prime minister. If the law is changed to allow Tory members, who are not MPs to become chairman of the party, then I think there’s a very good chance that BoJo could achieve the leadership. Despite the image of an affable, bumbling oaf, Johnson is aggressively ambitious, intelligent and has a nasty temper. He is, however, someone who has nothing in common with nor interest in the rest of the country, and would rule solely in the interest of the super-rich. As for his style of government, one of the essays reprinted in his book ‘Have I Got Views For You’ is a glowing piece about the Berlusconi, the corrupt and libidinous populist leader of Italy. We have indeed been warned. Like Germany with Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’, if he becomes leader we can’t say we weren’t warned.

A pair of Johnsons. [Image: BBC] A pair of Johnsons. [Image: BBC] Boris Johnson’s dad has said Tories who are not MPs should be allowed to stand for the party leadership – and wants us to believe he’s not saying it so his son can have a go.

Give us a break, Stan!

We all know Boris would love a crack at being top Tory – he thinks he’s a better statesman than any of the current cabinet. Considering their qualities, it is entirely possible for him to be correct and still be the ignorant, reptilian, right-wing, aristocratic oaf that we all know he is.

Or is this another Conservative test to see whether the population at large has become credulous enough to vote Conservative again? This would explain why you said the Tories will win next year’s general election with rosy-cheeked Dave Can’t-Moron in charge.

Here’s the story, if you think you can stomach it.

      Yeah – he can’t afford to keep the fire stations open, but he can afford water cannons. This shows his priorities all too clearly.
