Wink Anyone Seen Boris ?

Apparently Boris Johnson is holidaying in the area. Anyone spotted him?

Re: Anyone Seen Boris ?

Well he can call in and see me because I like him and still rate his programme on the EU shown on BBC2 to be one of the best I have ever seen about Turkey and the EU - very interesting guy and funny with it.

What he will be like as Mayor remains to be seen but a good holiday in Turkey will do him the world of good. With his Turkish roots he is a great supporter of the country even though his Turkish great-grandfather was murdered during the war of independence. He told the story in quite an amusing way as well.

Have a read of "Dream of Rome".

Re: Anyone Seen Boris ?

Cheers Teresa,

I'll admit its heavy going, rather thought provoking and certainly worth reading.

Re: Anyone Seen Boris ?

Thanks Teresa, a very interesting read and Boris is welcome to pop in for a chat if he is in the area!

(Our Mayor is a little bit crazy too, I am sure they would get on very well!!)

Re: Anyone Seen Boris ?

Wikipedia.

On his father's side Johnson is great-grandson of Ali Kemal Bey, a liberal Turkish journalist and interior minister in the government of Damat Ferid Pasha, Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire, who was murdered during the Turkish War of Independence.[5] During World War I, Boris's grandfather and great aunt were recognised as British subjects and took their grandmother's maiden name of Johnson.

Could this be why he's as daft as a Fez ?

Re: Anyone Seen Boris ?

I will admit that the programme was lighter to watch and he injected his humour into the subject . I would love to watch it again as it was an excellent insight into the EU and its parallels with the Roman Empire.
