Is it Three Jobs Boris ?

I heard on Radio Five Live earlier that Boris Johnson was going to use money from his Telegraph article he writes to fund some promotion of "Classics" (Latin and Ancient Greek) in the capital.

The thought struck me that Boris is Mayor of London, MP for Henley and also a writer for the Telegraph. Surely "Three Jobs Boris" has enough to do. So when will he resign his Henley seat ?

I was under the impression that Boris had resigned. But, looking at this article, http://www.henleystandard.co.uk/news/news03.php It looks as though he hasn't.

How odd...

Tory bashing again. What about having a part time defence minister, far more important than Boris running 2 jobs.

He's got to do something to keep his mind off women and vino... for Heaven's sake.

Its THREE jobs. Why don't you read what I wrote ?

As for your point I addressed this many many months ago but you are too politically blinkered to bother to check your facts.

Before throwing accusations around you might want to CHECK YOUR FACTS in future.

All the politicians write articles for the press.
I just ignored that as just being petty and fatuous.

I note you have made no positive comments on what Boris is doing in carrying out his manifesto.
Its how he carries out the job that matters, so why dont you comment on what he is doing instead of looking for negative remarks.

The more I read the more you appear to be Labour in Liberal clothing.Why dont you come out.

Boris is stepping down. End of story.

I would think that everyone's waiting until the Crewe & Nantwich by-election is done and dusted...
So an announcement by/during this weekend is my bet.

Would the Telegraph publish an article by Boris questioning why the government is supporting the McCanns?

It annoys me that the government has a policy: Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime, and yet when it comes to a 3 year old British girl in Portugal the government does a major U Turn and goes soft.

It's a national disgrace!

You are an idiot J Norfolk and do the Conservatives a disservice.

You accuse NB of failing to attack Labour and therefore showing a Labour bias, then when proved wrong you repeat the allegation as if to be some sort of spoilt child standing with is fingers in his ears.

We are trying to win a General Election Johnny Norfolk and won't do it with idiots like you on our side.

Are you Labour in disguise ?

Johnny Norfolk said...

S Graham.

I would suggest you lean some manners and do not be so rude. I have my opinions and you have yours. Make your point without personal abuse please.

Norfolk Blogger said...

You can give it but you can't take it can you.

Even your own side disagree with you.

Johnny Norfolk said...

I do not stoop to personal abuse. I may deride your ideas and attitude to things, but I only go so far. I would not call someone an idiot. i can assure you Mr Graham is not a Tory with his attitude.He will be Labour supporter judging by his tone.
