    His Turkish ancestry is dilute. How could he possibly not be white when he's pale, has blue eyes and has natural bleach blonde hair?

    By definition, bleach blonde is not natural.

    I think most people would consider the Old Etonian born in New York to be white. He could become Prime Minister if the UK votes to leave Europe. He has a short temper, no grasp of detail and as London Mayor has engaged in a number of vanity projects such as a bus with three doors and a cable car to nowhere. He would be the worst PM since Eden or maybe even Chamberlain.

    I'm referring to the colour, it's the same colour as bleached blonde hair, but his is presumably natural.

    Am I the only one who can picture Boris Johnson bleaching his hair?

    You could make the same argument over Disraeli I think

    Why was Chamberlain that bad of a PM?

    Reason: He is white

    Proof: Look at him. He is definitely white.

    Race is not the same thing as skin colour. If he has Turkish ancestry that is irrelevant. Every white person has African ancestry (if you go back far enough), doesn't make us African or black.

    Didn't realise his Grandad changed his surname from Kemal to Johnson. Boris Kemal doesn't quite have the same ring to it lol.

    Beneath the surface of that admittedly disastrous deal, you will see the Chamberlain was actually a pretty good PM.

    There were numerous meetings before where Chamberlain was hugely successful and was the only democratic leader to (sometimes) successfully challenge Hitler face-to-face and get his own way. Something not even Hitler's closest advisors would be able to do.

    It makes him a bad PM for trying to avoid another devastating war?

    We can't judge him on his motivations but only on the outcomes which were catastrophic. Ed miliband by all accounts was a decent and sincere person yet he failed spectacularly as opposition leader. .

    Way to completely contradict yourself in one post.
