From 2013: You're a nasty piece of artwork, aren't you? Boris Johnson erotic sketch is unearthed...
In Monday night’s documentary Boris Johnson: The Irresistible Rise, the Mayor told interviewer Michael Cockerell that as well as wanting to be prime minister, he also dreamt of being a great artist. So the Londoner has now unearthed one of Boris’s early endeavours, a drawing he submitted to the Erotic Review in 1998, just before he became editor of The Spectator.

Boris’s sketch is meant to depict Lady Godiva on a horse. He faxed through the picture, recalls Rowan Pelling, who was then editor of the Erotic Review and is now a columnist on the Daily Telegraph, for a competition in which readers were asked to guess which journalist named Johnson had drawn it — Frank, Paul or Boris.

Those with a critical eye may note that Boris didn’t care to give Lady Godiva long tresses to preserve her modesty. Furthermore, the horse “looks more like a donkey”, observes Pelling.

“I’d like to think we had a large and priceless collection of Boris Johnson’s kruptadia in our archives,” says the current editor Jamie Maclean, but sadly it isn’t so. “We thought it Chagall-esque at the time, but now I look at it again I think it’s closer to James Thurber.”

Boris’s mother, Charlotte Fawcett, is a talented painter but my colleague Brian Sewell doesn’t believe the talent has passed down the bloodline. “This picture really has no artistic merit,” says the Standard’s esteemed art critic. “And it isn’t in any way erotic.”

The Londoner didn’t ask Eddie Mair what he thought, lest he rudely called it a nasty piece of artwork.

Seriously though, I'd like to see a film of that, to see how it plays out. All I've seen is that photograph. Can't believe they would let Johnson loose with a bull! :loopy:

The only video I've found leads up to the scene in the photo: Boris Johnson walks bull on Scottish farm visit

Britain's Boris Johnson visits a farm, steers bull into police officer!

A bull bumps into a plain clothes police officer, left, while being walked by Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson during a visit to Darnford Farm in Banchory near Aberdeen, Scotland, Friday Sept. 6, 2019, to coincide with the publication of Lord Bew's review and an announcement of extra funding for Scottish farmers.


British politics this week like the mad scenes in King Lear...

Someone were to take that tone with Trump, he'd be escorted out. :loopy:

Brexit: Police to lose powers to arrest criminals wanted by EU countries without court warrant after no-deal...
Police officers will not be able to arrest internationally wanted murderers, rapists and criminals on sight after a no-deal Brexit because the government has failed to bring in the necessary law.

If Britain crashes out of the EU on 31 October, law enforcement agencies will lose access to a major European database and fall back on an alternative Interpol system.

But parliament’s Home Affairs Committee was told that not all EU member states upload “red notices” on wanted suspects to the I-24/7 database, and the alerts do not give British police immediate powers of arrest.

Deputy assistant commissioner Richard Martin, the national police lead for Brexit, said officers would have to apply to magistrates courts for a warrant to detain suspects wanted by EU countries.

How to create a world of terrorists? :roll:

There is no deal on the table. Johnson hasn’t put anything there except a couple of demands to drop the back stop. He keeps speaking about technical alternatives to the back stop as easily achievable but in 2 weeks as PM and with nearly a year of planning he hasn’t put forward any proposal for such an alternative. Probably because there is no realistic proposal as his own technical papers confirm.

The alternatives are no deal or an extension. Not sure the EU is ready to agree the latter without a change of government or leader. 57 days and counting, perhaps they’d better cancel the party conferences.

Boris used to hate Trump. But since he colluded, they’re best buds.
In one way, besides an enmity to combed hair, they’re very similar.
“Holy shit! I got elected? Now what do I do?”
It’s like invading Iraq with no plans for what comes next.
