What other politician eh?

Well yes...he's had a very expensive education and all that brings. You could stick a pig in Eton and it would come out brimming with self confidence and an air of the worldly wise about it.

I've got an antidote for that PP.

I'm pretty sure that 5 years at Eton does not turn you into Boris Johnson.

Not at all MrsBert. Even when Boris gets stuck on a zip wire, he still comes across well. Just compare:

I don't even know what he stands for politically wise (apart from him being a tory boy of course) but there is something intriguing about him.

Publically, the buffoon persona is very endearing/appealing (although I can understand how ridiculous and inappropriate this could come across) in the stuffy world of politicians.

He's unpredictable, very driven, and I would vote for his hair if it were ever to stand grin

It frightens me a bit to think he might have a shot at being PM one day, I know his public persona does mask the totally different person he is in private, but it is easy for people to be taken in by that public charisma, and that's where it could get sticky.

Thank Christ for that. Can you imagine a few hundred of the buggers every year?

Neo hahaha

An Etonian pig would probably fare better on a zip line.
