just for fun …. for the very few that may be here

He has been described as ‘shambolic’ and in appearance I suppose he often is.

Born in America to Brit parents, he is the mayor of London, often sneered at by liberals and sometimes his fellow conservatives as well.
Reading a bit about his adventurer dad, I’d guess his upbringing along with his siblings was a bit shambolic too.  He’s an interesting person, from what little I know of him.  I do know he’s fun to listen to when he is interviewed or a guest on a panel show.  His sister is a writer as he is btw, there are no dummies in that family I’m aware of.  It would not be allowed.  So this had to be one of those very embarrassing moments for bad Boris, who really is a very smart guy.  But apparently he opened his mouth before his brain was totally engaged. Again.  He does that from time to time, and ppl love the guy. He has committed verbal blunders many politicians would resign over after the dust settles.  Not our Boris.  He seems to go from strength to strength.
Oddly enough, from what I have heard, he once did hold some kind of office but was a dud at it.
He angered conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic when he wrote a piece in the Telegraph supporting Obama and he explained why.
I couldn’t bring myself to read it, which on reflection I really should have done.  But I didn’t and it’s water under the old saying now.  His newspaper columns had been published as a book, he is a good writer if a bit wordy for me.  So that’s a brief background and
HERE’S A BIO if you care.

So then .... away we go.  An episode of foot in mouth?  Btw ... this surely can not be an IQ test.

Some of these are tricks I do believe.  See how ya do and the answers are below the fold.
Boris for all his brains .... failed says the paper this comes from.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
