Boris is a highly intelligent man; he also has a fantastic sense of humour. Boris for PM!

Don't be fooled - Boris has more brains, and a better grasp of the current situation facing this country, than the rest of the Libs and Tories put together. If he came up with a credible, workable, save-Britain plan, my guess is that he'd be in by a landslide. Apart from Redwood, Davies and the Chelmsford Boot Boy, he's the only Tory (or in fact, the only politician of any political shade in the Big Three) that I'd even consider voting for.

What makes Boris the best is that it's all natural and it's honest. He would make a great PM. I can't imagine him inventing reasons to go to war.

Great to have a 'politician' who isn't a shiny-suited lawyer, smiling and saying anything you want to hear before leaving you and ignoring what you said. I like Boris because he may be a posh boy but he'd be just as happy having a pint of old and filthy with someone down-to-earth than many of the back-stabbing politicians he has to deal with at the moment... left or right. Maybe not as good as Churchill, but Churchill wasn't happier than when he was laying bricks and getting his hands dirty.
