Boris Johnson Quotes

My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive.

My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.

The dreadful truth is that when people come to see their MP they have run out of better ideas.

Prime Minister Khan ? Well Boris  the 'Russian' used to be London Mayor :)

 The question for Boris Johnson — former mayor of London, former British foreign secretary and current potential British prime minister — was simple:

 

What’s the worst mistake you’ve ever made?

 

There were many possibilities to choose from. But Mr. Johnson looked at his interlocutor, Arthur C. Brooks, the institute’s president, and developed the glint in his eye that usually means he is about to deploy a well-rehearsed bluster-and-deflect response.

 

“My strategy is to litter my career with so many decoy mistakes, nobody knows which one to attack,” Mr. Johnson declared. “In the last few minutes I’ve probably said something that the British media will say is absolutely outrageous, though I don’t know what it is.”

 

What Mr. Johnson did not mention was the cloud of intrigue, both personal (he is about to get a divorce) and political (he is probably plotting against Prime Minister Theresa May), wafting around him as he made his way across the Atlantic.

Articulate, charismatic and virtually unembarrassable, Mr. Johnson is one of the most popular leaders in a Conservative Party riven by internal dissent — and one of the few British politicians who is instantly recognizable to a foreign audience.

 

Along with Nigel Farage — the deeply anti-Europe U.K. Independence Party politician who used to be seen as a bit of a joke in Britain but has been touted by President Trump as someone whom “many people” believed should be ambassador to the United States — Mr. Johnson is emerging as the sort of leader Mr. Trump likes.

 

During his visit to Britain this summer, the president declared that Mr. Johnson would “make a great prime minister” because, he said, “he’s got what it takes.”

 

And Mr. Johnson, who once called Mr. Trump “stupefyingly ignorant,” “clearly out of his mind” and unfit to be president, has lately taken to praising him back.

 

“I have become more and more convinced that there is method to his madness,” he was quoted as having said at a private meeting of Conservatives in June.

 

 

At home, Mr. Johnson is seen as a deeply ambitious opportunist who masks his seriousness of purpose with a well-polished air of befuddled dishevelment and humorous nonchalance.

 

Like many Trumpian Republicans, Mr. Johnson has lately been tacking right, employing (in his case) an increasingly populist tone on issues like immigration, multiculturalism and Brexit, as the difficult process of Britain’s extrication from the European Union is called.

 

Moderate Conservatives regard him as stealthy and dangerous.

 

“The cheeky chap of ‘Have I Got News for You?’ has morphed into a snarling populist,” the Conservative commentator Matthew d’Ancona wrote recently, referring to a satirical game show that Mr. Johnson occasionally appeared on earlier in his career. “We need to approach his ambitions with deadly seriousness.”

 

None of that was mentioned in Washington, where Mr. Johnson, 54, was in town to accept this year’s Irving Kristol Award, which honors people who have made “exceptional intellectual and practical contributions to improve government policy, social welfare, or political understanding.” Previous recipients include Benjamin Netanyahu and Paul Ryan.

 

Answering questions onstage from Mr. Brooks — sample: “Tell us, what does the special relationship mean, in your view?” — he discussed Russia, Europe, Winston Churchill, the Roman Empire and how the best way to promote unity in a Britain divided by discord over Brexit would have been for England to beat France in the World Cup.

 

Discussing his political evolution, Mr. Johnson described how his encounters with “bourgeois affluent hypocritical left-wing students” at Oxford University proved so unpleasant that he underwent a political conversion, virtually on the spot.

“My right-wing feelings were triggered, to use a modern word, by my sense of outrage at their glutinous hypocrisy,” he said, speaking of his classmates.
