Thinking Man's Idiot by A. Vasudevan
Book DescriptionBoris Johnson [is] known as the thinking man's idiot - Humphrey Lyttelton on "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue". Try as I might, I could not look at an overhead projection of a growth/profit matrix and stay conscious - Boris on why he quit after a week as a management consultant. He's the sort of person who 200 years ago would have died aged 30 leading a cavalry charge into a volcano - Frankie Boyle on "Mock the Week". It may be that the psychological effort needed to haul myself around into a more gaffe-free zone proves too difficult - Boris when asked if he would be included in the 2007 Tory reshuffle.Everyone has an opinion on London's mayor and the Tory Party's shining-star-cum-bumbling-liability, and the man himself has views on pretty much everything, from lapdancing to George Bush, the campaign trail to speed limits.This handy book, illustrated throughout with caricatures and wittily-captioned photos, collects together over a hundred Boris-isms and gems from critics and supporters alike, from Ian Hislop to Arnold Schwarzenegger. It is a must for any Boris fan.
