Bo-Reeesss!! That's right, Uncle Boris, mayor of London, is the Torry's Great White Hope for remaining in power. Certainly not from the current pencil pusher.

And here he is talking about one of the two greatest PMs of the 20th century.

There's no question, he's larger than life. And if there is any chance of staving off Nigel and crew, he is the only one out there.

BTY, when he talks about the lost years, he is right on. I was there in the mid 60s, and England was so backward: water closets were one per floor, no refrigeration(just ice boxes), no central heating, and air conditioning non-existent.

It was still sooo 19th century. Thatcher did more to bring it out of the doldrums than anyone else. She helped make Free Enterprise respectable again.
I must have Boris confused with another London mayor. The one I thought was still in office was an openly Marxist guy named "red" something.

Of course only a deluded human would see Thatcher as a poor leader. The same folks who would see Reagan as a poor leader here. We can all find flaws, but, most of each nation improved their lots.
Oh, you are thinking of that Livingston fellow. Completely different guy here.

Boris is a unique individual indeed. He's not only a serious politician, but a genuine celebrity as well. He has the ability to speak exactly what is on his mind and inspire others. Interesting fellow.
LOL. Oh Boy, Boris' potential competitor is nit picking his Thatcher paper: 'Give everyone the best chance': George Osborne's reply to Boris Johnson's IQ elite speech.

Quote:George Osborne has moved to distance himself from Boris Johnson after the London Mayor suggested society is unequal because many people have low IQs.

The Chancellor said he did not agree with everything Mr Johnson said and stressed the importance of education to spread opportunity.

Delivering the Margaret Thatcher lecture last week, the Tory mayor appeared to mock the 16% of "our species" with an IQ below 85 and urged more action to help the 2% with an IQ above 130.

No he didn't. I went back and checked the original article. What he actually stated was, "Whatever you may think of the value of IQ tests, it is surely relevant to a conversation about equality that as many as 16 per cent of our species have an IQ below 85, while about 2 per cent have an IQ above 130." I have no reason to believe this was stated in any other intent that fact. Such nit-picking here on Osborne's part.
