      He, who is arguing that Britain should crash out of EU without a hint of irony is attending a business summit in Dublin.

      Mind you, his last gig was The DUP so he obviously likes to get around, just ask his ex wife.

    I am surprised he did not burst into spontaneous flames when his foot touched the ground at the airport.

    Or maybe that is just for Arlene…

    I’ll go with the no doubt prevailing wind round here and say this guy is a tool of the highest order.

    Not only that he’s a coward. When the going gets tough, Boris gets going towards the exit. The only thing he’s good at is self promotion

    Not sure if it’s the lighting or what but he actually looks like a wax-work of himself in the first two pics.

    He has an awful reputation in some quarters, but he’s the favorite to take over in the Conservatives.

    He’s also a keen cyclist.

    And he has the right stuff. I remember when he was mayor of London he was cycling home through Camden when he came across a random woman being assaulted by a man on the street and he successfully intervened. How many politicians would do that?

      Really, are you seriously suggesting that nobody would intervene seeing a woman being assaulted, and those that do are somehow heroes, despite their otherwise gob sheenism?

      He probably went on to have an illicit affair with her afterwards. Dispensed with the mugger and got her number in one deft swoop…

        And then found himself needing to apologise to some small African nation he had offended earlier in the day.

        He was funny, until what he was up to just got way too serious to be funny anymore. Selfish, I would say.

    He’s back to the Worzel Gummidge hairdo after the “Prime Minister Elect” neat haircut didn’t pan out.

    He plays the bufoon, but he’s dangeous.

    So it’s not enough for Bryan Dobson to be paid €198,146 by loss-making RTE to do, to put it charitably, a mediocre job on the radio breakfast show?

      RTE have to approve all of these side gigs now I think, after one of Bryan Dobson’s colleagues did a gig that got her some negative press…….for the life of me I can’t remember who or what.
