scottishmummy Sun 14-Aug-11 11:02:22

Hes a joke

scottishmummy Sun 14-Aug-11 11:06:13

better than shambolic ken and the profligate waste and employing all his fancy women and acolytes

There is an obvious cause for the riots if you want one apart from it was a way of getting 'free' stuff - the huge inequalities in our society. Course Boris et al won't actually say that cos they are all the 'haves' big time.

At least Ken instigated a decent min wage for ALL council employees (£10ph? for council cleaners in London?)

scottishmummy Sun 14-Aug-11 11:11:41

yes ken was good at spending money.other people money

People have stopped listening to politicians - they're all full of shit -

ChumleeIsMyHomeboy Sun 14-Aug-11 11:17:03

Red Ken - champagne socialism at it's absolute worst. Compared to him Boris is a saint. Actually Boris IS a saint.

Anniegetyourgun Sun 14-Aug-11 11:17:56

Er Chumlee, that's not a halo he's wearing, it's scruffy blond hair.

CurrySpice Sun 14-Aug-11 11:19:42

Tha man is a buffoon

ChumleeIsMyHomeboy Sun 14-Aug-11 11:20:47

That's not scruffy Annie - I bet it takes hours to achieve that look! Anyway - entitled buffoon or not - I would!

YABU seeker. Boris is extremely clever, highly educated and the fact that he's well off doesn't in itself undermine his views. Some of the most left-wing of our politicians have come from the same school, university and social background. Boris is idiosyncratic, but he speaks a lot of sense.

Nancy66 Sun 14-Aug-11 11:22:45

I don't mind Boris - at least he isn't apologetic about his privilege in the way Dave is. He's never struck me as having a sense of entitlement.

I think hating somebody because they come from a wealthy background is as bad as doing so because they're poor/disadvantaged.

Anniegetyourgun Sun 14-Aug-11 11:23:33

"Boris Johnson: Saint or Sex Object?" Erm... is there a third choice?

I like the word "buffoon", CurrySpice. The Bouffant Buffoon. It has a ring to it.

scottishmummy Sun 14-Aug-11 11:24:05

boris is clever,and consults and asks to inform himself.ken by all accounts was more meglomaniac.

scottishmummy Sun 14-Aug-11 11:25:13

and ken is competitively worthy.so right on.

pickgo Sun 14-Aug-11 11:25:47

Haven't noticed London council tax has diminished since Boris arrived though Scottish mummy? Just loads spent on games for the kids. Err... what ecomonic crisis... grin

Boris is a great larf.... but not sure he's got a clue about what life is like for the majority.

CurrySpice Sun 14-Aug-11 11:25:49

Annie make it your mission to call someone a buffoon today grin

TrompetteMilitaire Sun 14-Aug-11 11:27:52

yabu. Very.

Anniegetyourgun Sun 14-Aug-11 11:27:53

I have a long list, CurrySpice grin

Callisto Sun 14-Aug-11 11:28:35

How does Boris have a sense of entitlement? Or have I misunderstood the OP? And why should having a privileged background immediately make a person unable to hold views on people with less money? It is such a chippy attitude to take.

CurrySpice Sun 14-Aug-11 11:30:49

You buffoon Annie!

I was thinking about that Annie when I typed it. The mood I'm in today, it shouldn't take me long to find a buffoon to label grin

CurrySpice Sun 14-Aug-11 11:31:56

Callisto, I don't think it makes them unable to hold the views. I do think it gives me the right (as I am entitled too grin) to roll my eyes when they pontificate about poor people

scottishmummy Sun 14-Aug-11 11:31:58

cleggy and cameron are the frauds,not boris
all prosperous
