    And here we have Boris's deputy being totally slaughtered.

    Nice to know the people in charge are competent!

    There's more to running a country than bombast posing as oratory.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Note: 'running the country', not 'getting elected'.

    I think Boris would give the country a much needed morale boost!

    Despite what's said about him, his loved by London which isn't bad going being a Tory and all...

    He can be a morale-boosting mayor of London, where he doesn't actually have that much input (to fuck up).

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    The closest comparison would probably Arnie (gimmicky, clueless and inexplicably popular) and that went really well so yeah lets all vote for Boris.

    Portable view - Never forget.

    Arnie did a decent job though, no? Considering what a shitty position the Governor of California is in he seemed to cope as well as anyone could.

    Aren't they near-bankrupt?

    Sure, but he was left unable to raise funds or do much about that due to a bunch of retarded laws passed years previous which no one wants to repeal.

    My instant reaction is no.

    But then we do have a useless, clueless prat that nobody likes in charge now, so why not have a probably useless, potentially clueless (although he understands the 'Boris' brand and thus probably isn't all that clueless) but most definitely prat, that people do actually like?

    But still, no.

    Arnie wasn't to blame for California's issues. I don't think he did much to help (not through lack of trying), but he wasn't to blame. Plus he was really just a 'face' for his regime.

    Boris is doing a good job in London, much better than Ken.

    What would be wrong with Boris over Cameron or any other Tory or in fact any other potential leader in UK politics.. He clearly isn't stupid and comes across genuine unlike the snake Cameron and all the rest. Yes he can be silly and clumsy but so what. Can't be any worse than the hollow lot that most politicians are.

    Nah, I'd say Ken just edges it.

    More people voted against him than for him than for him in the last Mayoral election and that doesn't count the people that spoiled their ballots or found the whole lot of them so horribly unrepresentative they couldn't be arsed to vote for any of them.

    Edit: But yes, being a tory and still electable in 2012 after a term of pretty uninspired leadership's not a bad job.

    Fuck Ken. Slimey cunt. Boris is a tit, but better. He should run for leader and then PM. I'd never vote for him, but he couldn't be worse than the current elitist old-boy wankers.

    If he runs or leader when the Tories are in power, won't he automatically become PM?

    Are you actually claiming that Boris isn't an elitist old boy wanker ?

    He we go.... we can all twist polls as much as we want, at the end of the day more people voted for Boris than any other candidate. Why? Because we has done a good job in London and deserves a second term.

    Heh, wow! Tbf, I'm an unapologetic inverse snob, but Boris' world view leaked out when he described god knows how many thousands for a newspaper article as throwaway change.

    How the hell somebody with this view can relate to the wider population is beyond me. And if you think that the ability to relate to the broader population isn't necessarily needed to effectively govern, the fact that he let this opinion loose in the first place implies that he's not the skilled politician many people have him pegged down as.
