Boris Johnson


British journalist and Politician, who serves as the current Mayor of London.
Boris Johnson
Not even Mr Blair has been able to erode the unions conviction that we all have a “right” to a minimum wage… Both the minimum wage and the Social Charter would palpably destroy jobs.
Johnson quotes
My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive.
Johnson
Dark forces dragged me away from the keyboard, swirling forces of irresistible intensity and power.




Johnson Boris quotes
Life isn’t like coursework, baby. It’s one damn essay crisis after another.
Johnson Boris
I'm backing David Cameron's campaign out of pure, cynical self-interest.
Boris Johnson quotes
Boris Johnson, people always ask me the same question, they say, 'Is Boris a very very clever man pretending to be an idiot?' And I always say, 'No.'
Boris Johnson
I’m very attracted to it. I may be diverting from Tory party policy here, but I don’t care.
Johnson Boris quotes
The Lib Dems are not just empty. They are a void within a vacuum surrounded by a vast inanition.
Johnson
The proposed ban on incitement to “religious hatred” makes no sense unless it involves a ban on the Koran itself; and that would be pretty absurd, when you consider that the Bill's intention is to fight Islamophobia.
Johnson Boris
I could not fail to disagree with you less.
Boris Johnson
Look, I wouldn't trust Harriet Harman's political judgement.




Boris Johnson quotes
It is said that the Queen has come to love the Commonwealth, partly because it supplies her with regular cheering crowds of flag-waving picaninnies; and one can imagine that Blair, twice victor abroad but enmired at home, is similarly seduced by foreign politeness. They say he is shortly off to the Congo. No doubt the AK47s will fall silent, and the pangas will stop their hacking of human flesh, and the tribal warriors will all break out in Watermelon smiles to see the big white chief touch down in his big white British taxpayer-funded bird.
Boris Johnson
Chinese cultural influence is virtually nil, and unlikely to increase… Indeed, high Chinese culture and art are almost all imitative of western forms: Chinese concert pianists are technically brilliant, but brilliant at Schubert and Rachmaninov. Chinese ballerinas dance to the scores of Diaghilev. The number of Chinese Nobel prizes won on home turf is zero, although there are of course legions of bright Chinese trying to escape to Stanford and Caltech… It is hard to think of a single Chinese sport at the Olympics, compared with umpteen invented by Britain, including ping-pong, I’ll have you know, which originated at upper-class dinner tables and was first called whiff-whaff. The Chinese have a script so fiendishly complicated that they cannot produce a proper keyboard for it.
Johnson quotes
Howard is a dynamic performer on many levels. There you are. He sent me to Liverpool. Marvellous place. Howard was the most effective Home Secretary since Peel. Hang on, was Peel Home Secretary?
Johnson Boris
He is fumbling all over the place.
Johnson Boris quotes
They are like glistening wet otters frolicking.
Boris Johnson
What we hate, what we fear, is being ignored.
Boris Johnson quotes
You are a self-centred, pompous twit. Even your body language on TV is pathetic. Get out of public life. Go and do something in the private sector.
Boris Johnson
My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.
Johnson Boris
I love tennis with a passion. I challenged Boris Becker to a match once and he said he was up for it but he never called back. I bet I could make him run around.
