    What does everybody think of him?

    Not a fan. A real nasty Tory. Homophobic, insensetive and rude. The chicken feed comments summed him up really. £250,000 is not chicken feed to the huge number of mothers and fathers who are struggiling in poverty.

    What was it Cameron wanted to usher in again? A new age of austerity? Looks like Boris didn't get the memo.

    Hmmm, I don't know whether he's actually nasty, or just gaffe-prone.

    He's got it right about grammar schools, mostly right about Afghanistan, and is heading in the right direction re: unionism in TfL. That said, there's a lot he says and does that I don't agree with. Drinking on the tube for one.

    Well he's best mates with my old boss, who was eccentric but really cool and an absolute genius.

    He says what he likes and likes what he says, which is a refreshing change. Too many people spend too much time worrying about how their actions will 'offend' people.

    What's so bad about him and why is he homophobic?
    Don't really read about him in the news much here, but I like that he has a sense of humour and he's very funny. A unique politician. He also seems quite assertive, very honest with his opinions and knowledgable. This is coming from a Labour supporter btw :X

    I quite like Boris Johnson. I don't think he's nasty, he just doesn't think before he speaks. He makes me laugh with some of the stuff he comes out with, particularly on the occasions when he was a guest presenter on HIGNFY.

    A breath of fresh air. He speaks his mind rather than reciting party mantras like most of the soulless minions of the political world. He is funny and often more right than wrong, and I don't care if he offends people from time to time. Free speech, including the freedom to offend, is a fundamental liberty that has been progressively eroded by New Labour.

    He's a lot more intelligent than he pretends to be. He only plays the fool because he knows people are sick of political correctness.

    His jovial, buffoon-esque persona masks deeply right-wing views and a strong intellect. I find him unpleasant, arrogant and for all his genial humour, the man cheated on his wife which hardly shows he has much moral awareness or sense of responsibility. :hmmm:

    Homophobic
    Everyone saw through the paper-thin socialist accusations of racism; they'll see through this bull-**** too, and you'll just end up looking pathetic.

    The chicken feed comments summed him up really. £250,000 is not chicken feed to the huge number of mothers and fathers who are struggiling in poverty.
    Well, there's some dispute about what he meant, but all the same - he is not one of those people.

    He's ok. But probably neither as innocent, bumbling, or nice as he makes out.

    A very popular politician. He doesnt take himself, or much else seriously. He says what he like and doesnt really care who it offends, which is a nice change. He would make an amazing PM as long as he had the team behind him to actually make desisions.

    I like Boris, he is a good Mayor. Although I am not sure whether I would actually like to see him be PM. I think I'd rather have Cameron who has more of the gravitas required for Prime Minister.

    Bo Jo would make a good PM. But, he really needs to improve his flag waving skills.

    Well, he does give £50,000 of the money he earns to charity so I don't see how your critism is justified.
