Mr. Tory Troll when are you going to do the blog. on the other interesting words like astroturfer, I also want to know what wi-fi means now.(and neo-con)

You are whipping yourself up into a lather over this Boris business, RIGHT WILL PREVAIL. I am confident that the British people, of whom Londoners are some of the best, will make the right choice.

You are about to implode and take off into the stratosphere and you have such an imaginative blog. site here, you have more to share with us!

I sort of regard you the same way i do Tom Cruise.... I may not agree with anything you say, but I totally respect the passion with which you believe and say it!

The Tory Troll said...

Tom Cruise!! Now you're just being rude.

Stop Boris said...

Have you seen that same person's other video? I think it's even better.

The Tory Troll said...

Yes, and nowhere near as offensive. I'm sorry for linking to this video readers. Whatever was I thinking?

I think people should cut Tom Cruise some slack!! He may be wacky as hell, but at least he believes in something!

Just how I feel about you, Mr. Tory Troll!

Mr. TT, can't we get off their love lives? I just don't believe it is relevant. Suppose Ken likes to wear womens' clothes in private. Who gives a stuff? I should be the first to defend his right to privacy because all this snooping is just a way of selling newsapers.

They want a story to be as filthy as possible so they can sell a gazillion copies and that is all it is about.

Did having loads of women negate what good JFK did? Or what Bobby Kennedy did? Didn't Martin Luther King have mistresses?

Oscar Schindler! There is a good example. I just feel we are all a mixture of good and bad and work is work and our sex lives dont't affect that. come on Tom, admit I have a point!

The Tory Troll said...

Hmm, I'm not sure I said anything about Boris' love life. If you're referring to the video, it wasn't made by me. I'm not that twisted.

Tom Cruise on the other hand is a very scary megalomaniac life-snatcher. Boris Johnson may be a right-wing fool who I want to keep out of power, but I don't have any real bad-feeling towards him. Tom Cruise on the other hand...

angelneptunestar said...

Ahhh a nice comment about Boris at last! You don't have bad feelings towards him, and who could feel badly about such an affable, friendly guy,

Didn't Tom Cruise have a very hard childhood - his dad was a violent alcoholic who mistreated his mother, so probably he is reacting to that. In addition he gets the fact that he is short shoved down his throat every day of the week, when no-one ever dares to say that to Al Pacino.

I saw Al Pacino once and he is shorter than Tom but no-one ever says because probably he would knock your teeth down your throat.

I feel sorry for all the candidates at the moment. They must be absolutely exhausted, working a seven day week, and Boris is working hardest of all. In addition, he has to look at pictures of his um hard currency on You Tube and have his love life rehashed on a daily basis, It can't be easy.

If anyone was in any doubt about how much Boris wants this, those doubts must be long gone. He is taking a huge salary cut if he gets the job, because he was pulling in half a mill. a year with his books, writing and appearances. Oh yes, we are getting a real treasure in Boris, there is no doubt at all about that!

The Tory Troll said...

someone should bury that treasure ;)

Stop Boris is right - the other video is much better - and really rather eye-opening - and less offensive. It's probably that one you should link to....

The Tory Troll said...

I think you're right mark t'mark

offensive? perhaps... but based in fact, each and every line! and surely saying the word 'pr1ck' in connotation with boris is no more or less offensive than depicting him as a big bouncing c0ck and b@lls!!!

The Tory Troll said...

Possibly. Generally though he's offensive enough by himself without the help of any video.

you know that, and i know that... but unfortunately, there are many people who are willing to vote for boris purely because they perceive him as funny and charming - which is why a variety of media is necessary to combat this view.

some voters may be swayed by his appearances on comedy shows etc into thinking that he is an ok bloke who might do a decent enough job. that isn't a risk i'm prepared to take, so consequently i support the use of creative projects on youtube etc, even if there is a danger they may be seen as offensive by some people...
