If Livingstone is a tool, I'd hate to think of what Boris Johnson is, he Bloke has the worst case of foot-in-mouth disease that I've ever seen.Oh come on, the guy is a dead set tool. I CBF right now but I shall hunt out some of his quotes to present my argument
For every stupid comment that Livingston has made, your friend Boris has made about 50. Anyways, you'd be hard pressed to find a politician who hasn't said somethiong stupid."if they're not happy they can always go back to Iran and see if they can do better under the Ayatollahs"
foot-in-mouth you say?
The problem with forums is that they are usually weighted towards a heavy student/late teens-early 20s membership, both of these groups tend to have a disporportionate amount of liberals and socialists in comparison to the rest of the populationSorry, but old red Ken is a tool, always has been, always will be. Even his own party knew that (though backed down when they found out he was a popular tool, oh how New Labour held those standards high).
Boris gets painted as a bit of a muppet, but y'know, back in the olden days everyone laughed at the court jester, but he was the only one who could get away with telling the King how it is. Behind that public image of the foppy haired public schoolboy with no social grace is actually quite a decent political mind (Christ sake if he survived the debacle that was the Conservates between 94 and 05 and come out both in positions of trust and being liked then he must be doing something right). Be nice to have a mayor not in the pockets of big business, might actually get the olympics sorted on time, because lets face it, if its owt like Wembley or the Millenium Dome, were ****ed.
And dont worry Martyn, we can both get knocked out in round one through a political witchhunt....
