Boris vs Alan Sugar? If you thought the last elections were a bit of a farce, just wait for the next ones.

Cameron, Brown and Sugar are all pointing at me. I'm a little scared now.

Sir Alan Sugar would be totally unsuitable as London Mayor. No doubt he is a very good businessman, and I am sure a good person,(does a lot for charity and so forth) but he is hardly renowned for his tact or diplomacy. Lacking Boris Johnson's urbane charm, or Ken's streetwise smarts, he would soon be in trouble right up to his neck. It would be like applying a stomach pump when all that is needed is a dose of Alka Selzer.

Thanks for that image Angela!

Mr. Stop Boris said...

Perhaps this rumour was started by Ken in an attempt to scare the Labour party away from looking for an alternative candidate for 2012 :)

How could any Mayor be better than Boris Johnson? I just don't understand it!

Helen said...

Was that irony, Angela?

I'd support Sugar for Labour Mayor - he's got all the qualities of the current Labour Party - he's a business person who's anti-union; he has no track record in politics; but the most important qualification I can think of is that he's not a member of the Labour Party.
Mind you, he's well to the left of some of the people Brown promotes.

Actually no, Helen,

Adam, in today's Mail, there is a feature on how George Galloway wrote to Mayor Johnson and quoted our quote!!

Sed quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Who will guard the guardians?

Coincidence or what? Rather a large one!

Oy George mate, don't tell me you didn't knick that off Adam's site!! Find your own Latin quotes, you ruddy copycat!

The Tory Troll said...

God help us he wants the job!

Adam, I KNOW!! Sir Alan Sugar was talking to Vanessa and he might take it, kill me now!

Sralan deals with every problem with the subtlety of a battering ram, it's either jump to it or get out.

His latest Apprentice is that guy who couldn't spell, talked about a back, sack and crack and did the imitation of a dynosaur, in other words, typical British middle management.

Sralan isn't a bad guy, if you don't mind negotiating skills that include slapping people silly and locking them up in dark closets.

You'll be begging Boris to come back.....

The Tory Troll said...

I was with you all the way until the last sentence. You just can't help yourself can you?

angelneptunestar said...

OK that was a step too far.

"Labour insiders have moved to kill off any prospect of Ken Livingstone making a comeback"

...Why?

Has nobody told him that he lost by a far small degree than Labour did overall?
