Boris Johnson f***s everyone off

"Sadly your honeymoon has ended" said Assembly Member John Biggs to the Mayor yesterday "and nobody has come to see you from the public."

Looking around the City Hall chamber yesterday morning it was hard to think otherwise. Of the thirty odd people in the gallery, almost all had been paid to turn up. 

This was not the kind of attention Boris has become used to. 

For that kind of attention he had to wait until today:

Now a few things come immediately to mind here. 

  1. How f***ing stupid is Boris Johnson to talk like this to a man who can so publicly f*** his reputation?
  2. Why the f*** has Keith Vaz released the transcript of a f***ing private conversation?
  3. What the f***?
Green members of London's Waste and Recyling Board also have a question for Boris Johnson which is 'where the f*** are you?'

"It appears the London Mayor is so caught up explaining his role the Damian Green fiasco, he is seriously neglecting the business of running London. The Waste and Recycling Board has an £84m budget, yet only one million has been spent to date on the recycle for London campaign in this financial year. The failure of the Mayor to turn up to the board meeting today, means further unacceptable delays in promoting waste and recycling across London."

F***ing hell Boris, I thought you were dead set on this f***ing recycling lark. So where the f*** are you? Are you in such an almighty f***ing mess, that all your other responsibilities get shot to f***? FFS!

Isn't he lovable?

Isn't he though. A real charmer.

Meanwhile in the alternate universe which is Boris's Twitter stream, the Mayor is all sweetness and light.

Helen said...

What about the rest of Ken's 40 000 f***ing trees, Boris?

AdamB said...

There's no more f***ing money Helen. He's already spent it three f***ing times over FFS.

pastyface said...

exactly how many f**king meetings has this overgrown schoolboy actually missed.

I thought he planted the first of the trees in Brixton not long after he was elected.

AdamB said...

He's a busy man Pastyface. He's got columns to write, elected representatives to abuse. Who the f*** do you think you are?

"I thought he planted the first of the trees in Brixton not long after he was elected."

To create the paper to print his neo-Thatcherite columns in the Telegraph on, presumably?

I'm not sure whether to be tickled that Boris once thought Vaz was a 'straight guy' or that he apparently opposes smear tactics. Interesting, that.

You're talking about the pal of Conrad Black and Darius Guppy and the champion of Ray Lewis. This is not the best judge of character.

Apart from of his own.

Can anyone tell me what is going on in the ES camp?
With articles like this in the Evening Boris, now with a big question mark, is this a sign to come?
I made a comment yesterday in the Evening Standard, the harshest I have made so far, and not without a little hope that a daydream of mine one day comes through, that Boris Johnson is forced to step down for his irresponsible actions and lack of respect for London and Londoners.
The comment was actually meant as a test, to see if Evening Standard would have the guts to print it. And they did!!! For the first time, it's the harshest comment I have ever attempted to get published in the ES, and it is the first they have ever published.
Anyone else who can share similar experiences?

AdamB said...

It's all still a bit hazy I'm afraid. Maybe the new ownership have worked out that suppressing any criticism of the Mayor whilst censoring all comments that don't fit the party line, probably aren't the smartest two editorial policies they could make. With circulation down14.5 per cent year on year, they're going to have to start doing something different.

Pippa Crerar now has the whole transcript.

Yes...

"Why the f*** has Keith Vaz released the transcript of a f***ing private conversation?"

It says a lot more about Vaz than it does about anyone else -- but nothing we didn't know already. Most people's use of language is liable to fall below a certain standard when speaking off the record ...I can think of a few notable examples. I'm sure "Tory Troll" and his perfectly pious friends appreciate that, and generously make allowances for it.

Vaz is a self-regarding, pompous ninny, and an idiot. Do a search for the words Vaz and Manhunt for one example.

Johnson should be commended for his restraint.

Hail Boris!

Pious? We're having a f***ing laugh you f***er.

prj45 said...

Hmm, do we think Boris is a bit rattled. F*** yeah.

Instead of blaming Vaz perhaps he should blame his verbal buckshot and lack of any attempt to be accurate whatsoever.

Tom said...

AoE lacks a certain sense of irony here, I think. We are talking about the Damian Green case, which at bottom involves the Conservative Party benefitting from politically motivated leaks. Boot, foot, other...

"anonymous.........yours appealing of ealing"? is that Richard Barnes?

forgive my ignorance, but can you elaborate on this? [might be best to explain at simpleton level so i can understand]

Good grief no. Barnes lives in Harefield, Hillingdon ...which I believe is in Wales. (Almost)

"AoE lacks a certain sense of irony here, I think."

The irony that Vaz of all people would be trying to suggest that Boris was being less than straight with his dumb committee?

Vaz -- the man who (among many other things) was suspended from the Commons (for a month) for not being straight with the Standards & Privileges Committee.

AdamB said...

infinity - Sorry I got distracted by Boris's potty mouth. Apart from myself and a couple of others there appeared to be only journalists, city hall workers and press officers there. At one point there were more assembly members in the chamber than there were members of the audience.

AofE - So you agree that politicians should be straight with committees and then punished when they're not? If it's good enough for Vaz...

"So you agree that politicians should be straight with committees and then punished when they're not?"

If Boris has materially misled the committee by making dishonest statements, then he should be punished. However it seems to me that the material aspects of his testimony have been entirely consistent throughout, i.e. that he did not give partisan advantage to his party leader by sharing information privileged to his office (before Green's arrest).

On the other hand, Vaz -- who wouldn't be straight with you if you hung him from a plumbline -- has indeed smeared Johnson in order to obfuscate the problem of him as an incapable chairman, being unable to sift out the pertinent facts from Johnson's testimony.

Nice.

I didn't say "if you hanged him from a plumbline"

You do appreciate, in English, there is a difference.

I thought you were just "having a f***ing laugh you f***er". Looks like now you're being all perfectly pious. More faces than a clock factory.

Very convenient for you, of course, but journalistically: weak.

Could do better, you f***er.

AdamB said...

Talking of different faces, why do you lose the 'aofE' sign-off and turn anonymous whenever you leave your nastier comments? It's not particularly appealing.
