What a load of bs - ICU counting - no one is that stupid!

May 03 2008 00:15

BORIS WINS!!! Excellent news.

"What a load of bs"

Yes, that's why it's called a spoof. Maybe some people *are* that stupid? ;)

Oh bo**ocks. Ok, so Stalinstone not exactly fantastic, but I'd rather have the devil I know screwing up London than some blonde-haired bumbling idiot.

OMG it's gonna be so funnyLOL he's gonna be running our infrastructure when he can't even talk to an ethnic minority without using accidental racial slursLOL! Omg I'm so glad I voted for Boris for a laughLOL. My "Watermelon smile" is so bigLOLOLOL!

Oh holy sh*t - what has London done! - just listened to a BBC interview with him about half an hour after he was elected. One of his first comments went along the lines of: "of course I will say some stupid things" which at first sounds funny - but you then realise he will be in charge of an ?11billion budget...

Everyone says stupid things. At least Boris knows he does, and it's infinitely preferable to him doing stupid things.

I second Ben Gray-saying stupid is very different to doing. I recommend reading his books-he is a highly intelligent guy and will do wonders for London!

I've no doubt he's a highly intelligent guy, its just given his past history and the comments he has made, I don't think he is the best choice to represent London both to its citizens and the world. Best of luck to him though - I hope he doesnt balls it up for London's sake...

Yes, because agreeing to give a journalists details to a known thug and criminal so he an go and break the said journalists legs is a really non-stupid thing to do.

And it's not so much what he's done that's stupid, it's what has he done at all apart form be comedic? F**k all, that's what.

You are a knob jockey

Rather a knob jockey than a criminal...

You don't get a scholarship to Eton and a degree from Oxford without intelligence, dear.

Boris won, accept that. If you don't like it then leave London - you pansy a**ed knob jockey!

I wept openly.
