This 2007 Boris Johnson quote is going viral. It’s easy to see why

It looks increasingly likely that Boris Johnson will waltz into 10 Downing street thanks to the votes of 300 odd MPS and mere 160 000 Conservative members with an average age of 55. Needless to say, many people have questioned the democratic legitimacy of this, not least Boris Johnson himself. Yes, 12 years ago when Gordon Brown became Prime Minister, Johnson had this to say. Clearly, we need to add hypocrite to his other titles.

  1. So, how many Brexiteers does it take to change a light bulb ??? None, because they love being lied to & kept in the dark.

  2. Politicians such as Boris and trump aren’t held to statements they’ve made as long as they validate their followers right to hate who cares right.

  3. If Johnson does get to be leader, then it might be very just if his shameless and calculating attempt to grab the top job ends with him not having it very long, probably with a general election being triggered. I’d like him to have it for about as long as a certain Khaleesi actually had the Iron Throne. Too much longer and he’ll wreck Britain and sell the last of it off to the Americans.

  4. Hopefully Boris wins – At least he is a brexit supporter and will reflect and apply what the country voted for.

  5. “Oh, get stuffed”
    Johnson, then mayor of London, answering to the firefighters chief in command. Who was demanding an explanation regarding the budget cuts and inability to purchase suitable equipment.
    This lack of equipment lead to why the Grenfell fire was like watching a giant candle burn.
    Well done Divided Kingdom, for there was no ruling over the waves on this occasion. You’ve been overruled from within, and you voted for them.
    Reap what you sow. Been saying that for years. Slow clap.

  6. Well snowflakes you must be real sick now a Brexiteer is about to become PM.
    Yesterday must have been a real kick in the teeth when Liebors attempts to thwart democracy were defeated! Cheer up, it’s not all doom and gloom, the sun is going to shine soon! Xx

  7. Loathsome, McVile and Harper are out.
    Still looks like the homophobic, racist, sexist, lying, cheating crook who tried to get a journalist beaten up, left a woman to rot in prison, cheated on his wife, said Child Abuse Investigations are spunking money up the wall, rugby tackled a 10-year-old boy on a business trip, accused the President of Turkey of defiling a goat, called Barack Obama “part-Kenyan”, said a Libyan city would be great once they “clear the dead bodies away”, said “F**K Business” and boasted about whisky tariffs at a Sikh Temple is going to win it, though.

  8. The problem with this man is that he tends to change his mind all too often. Nothing reliable about him, but I think he is just a fool in this game, and those who really pull the strings are in desperate need of one. By the look of things, the ship will now be under monkey’s command until it hits the reef.

  9. It would be hypocrisy if Alexander Boris De Pfeffingpfeffel Johnson did not to call a general election then. I have absolute confidence…. that he is a hypocrite as well as a liar etc etc this man cannot be trusted!!!! I have known for a long time that most tories would back a green monkey of it wore a blue rosette but it shocks even me that they have stooped this low. One hope to cling to, he will probably be so bad that he won’t last long and we’ll never have another tory government in my lifetime

  10. Philip Muskett, thanks for that, I so needed reminding that blind faith and ignorance will pay my mortgage for the next 10 years. As for Johnson, I can’t help thinking that a power crazed, cheating, hypocrite with racist tendencies will be wonderful for Britain’s reputation as an outward looking nation, after all, it’s working so well for the US right now….?

  11. Whoever wins they’ll try to implement the will of the minority despite what the country and ‘the people’ want.

  12. Boris made a career out of making shit up about the eu before he became an mp. Then he got the sack for it. Hes a serial liar, wouldn’t know the truth if it bit him on his arse.

  13. He says it’s the arrogance and the contempt that’s gets him, well I say it’s the sheer lies and hypocrisy that gets me.
