Boris Johnson is… “The Blob”

May 3, 2012



  He crawls! He creeps! He says reporters talk “fucking bollocks” live on television! Run, don’t walk (and don’t fall over), because Boris Johnson is… “The Blob.” As today’s London Mayoral elections head to the close, it looks like BoJo might be in for another term.
