They Fear Boris


If there was ever any doubt who has to be the conservative Candidate there can be none after this ....Look how scared they are

Labour supporters are attempting to block Boris Johnson's bid to be selected as the Tory candidate to challenge London mayor Ken Livingstone.
Two websites are trying to hijack the Tories' open primaries which give all Londoners - not just Tory voters - a say in choosing their candidate.
The Conservatives insist safeguards are in place to prevent the primaries being scuppered by their political opponents.
....Mr Johnson, who quit his post as the Tories' higher education spokesman to enter the race, has received the lion's share of press coverage and is hot favourite to win the Tory nomination at the bookmakers

Scary image. But Red Ken couldn't be the sheriff of anywhere. He'd be too busy pushing gun slingers and whore-house dancers down the saloon stairs.

whoops! Is that libellous? Am I... a concentration camp guard?

Was that libellous too?

Freedom'll come our way one day
As we start out of town.
All of a sudden we'll see,
sheriff Gorgon Brown
Aiming to shoot us down.
But Dave and Boz,
'll shoot him down.

Dave'll shoot the sheriff, and Boz'll shoot the deputy.
Dave'll shoot the sheriff, and Boz'll shoot the deputy.

Sheriff Brown always hated me;
For what I don't know.
Every time that I plant a seed
He said, "Kill it before it grows."
He said, "Kill it before it grows."
I say:


Dave shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense.
Dave shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense

Dave shot the sheriff, and Boz he shot the deputy.
Dave shot the sheriff, and Boz he shot his deputy

Hell, if Boris wins, I might move back to London. He's in with a fighting chance IMHO.

Eat your heart out Livingstone, because no amount of plotting by nulab conspirators can save you from the fate of losing your control freaked power and your grandiose title and trappings.

I agree with Drew Weston, a pretty astute psychological researcher who wrote the book, 'The Political Brain'. He says the winners in politics and all spheres of life are those who make a powerful EMOTIONAL CONNECTION with us great unwashables out here, not those who appeal to our rationality.

And while Ken sits alone in his mansion of addled reason, scratching his head and trying to remember how to win, Boz is the charismsic grand master of reasoned, emotive appeal. Over and above Boris's many and impressive qualities, it's surely this emotional connection he's made with us - sometimes through humour, other times through his disarming empathy with and understanding of the lives, trials and tribulations of us ordinary bods outside the political bubble - which places him light years ahead of the emotional dead parrot that is Livingstone.

We've only to read or watch Boris when he's outraged and we're instantly transformed into his co-conspiraters against the sort of despotic authority personified by that miserrable muggle Livingstone. To be 'with Boris' is to be instantly on the side of Harry Potter and of the little man and woman who are eterernally abused by the power crazed Kens of this world. See Boris's humour and we're hurtling back down the years with him to the golden age of our irreverent and carefree youth where the pomposity and absurdity of politicians was of less import and as meanigless as gnat's p*ss.

So eat your heart out old man misery, because the great heart of London is with Boris.

Auntie Flo' _ I'm with Boz!

Another little piece of history, for you, n. From the 1841 census in Scotland.

Name: Gordon Brown
Age: 55
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1786
Gender: Male
Where born: Midlothian, Scotland

Civil Parish: Edinburgh St Cuthberts
County: Midlothian
Address: 34 Buclengh Place
Occupation: Recorder Of West Kirk Briyon Ground
Parish Number: 685/2

Among his childen were a son named Gordon after him and one named James.

Connected to Broon? I think he may well have been - oddlyy enough, Gordon Brown was an unusual name in those parts. The birth county and place of residence follow a trend I'm finding among probable ancestors. And look at that occupation.

So what do we have here. A succession of sons of the manse - or a family with a predilection for the priesthood/ i.e. a load of monks?

Either way, gawd help us.
