The Case For Boris

Boris Johnson is one of the most versatile figures in British politics today. Whatever the job, he can turn his hand to it, whether it be editing a magazine, fighting for his constituents against their oppressors or leading the Conservative Party to victory at the next general election.

A man of great experience – dating back to the 1970s when he was milk monitor at Eton – he has proved himself to be a great leader on many occasions. In 1972 when on a school trip to the Peak District, he took charge of the rescue attempt when a teacher accidentally slipped and was pushed off a mountain; in 1984 he led the successful campaign to have cheese legalised at Oxford after a long struggle; and in 1999 he was chosen to be editor of the Spectator, a little-read magazine which he transformed into a little-read magazine.

Boris is also one of the Conservative Party’s intellectual heavyweights. In the 1980s he advised the government on monetarism; in the 1990s he was taken on as a consultant for the privatisation of the railways; and in by the end of the century he had personally designed an area in the Millennium Dome. Called ‘The Boris Zone’, it would have featured a cycling track, comfortable armchairs and an exhibition of trouser presses, were it not for budget constraints.

But it is today when Boris’s talents are most needed. London needs a strong leader with vision. Popular with the public and MPs, a political big-hitter and an intellectual giant, he is the obvious choice.

With Boris, the future will be bright.
