How did the UK ever manage to get him into the office? It's a pretty shady and immoral statement.
It's like saying "I'll sell you all as fodder to the sharks for a dime"

Damn man. That makes a lot of sense than. But it still comes off as immoral and rathe shallow minded to pick him. But than again a good quote goes
“Remember how dumb half the people you know are... than remember that half of all humans are dumber than that”

Political discussion aside, what I've noticed is that those who point out others' lack of morals and mental weaknesses with such theatrical indignation, are often themselves capable of resorting to the dirtiest tricks in life and often lack insight. As someone who introduced himself as a former physicist turned statistician, but confuses diffraction with gravitational lensing (for spacetime's sake!) and carelessly quotes the above nonsense, you kind of prove me right.

People who attended the 2019 Pendulum Summit in the Convention Centre Dublin will be familiar with Boris Johnson's yarn about the movie "Jaws".

At the motivational speakers event, the future prime minister asked the audience: "Who was the real hero of Jaws?".

After fielding several mock answers, Mr Johnson unveiled the correct answer - not the Sheriff, not the shark - but the Mayor. Why? Because he kept the beaches open, and kept businesses in business.
Actually, I take it back. It's the shark, Boris.

Without the shark there would be no show business.

In the real-world, with real-world great whites of course, Boris was correct

Apropos allegories, why Bible doesn't mention sharks? (Or does it?)

"Noah, you're gonna need a bigger boat!"

King Herod, at least that's what they told us in school.

Tory MP wants every home in Britain to have a portrait of the Queen

https://metro.co.uk/2021/06/24/tory-mp- ... -14823652/

Not the same as on the cover of the Rolling Stone..

When asked if Boris Johnson had a portrait of the Queen in his lavishly decorated Downing Street flat, his spokesman wouldn’t answer.
