Boris Johnson, writing in the Daily Telegraph in 2007...

It's the arrogance. It's the contempt. That's what gets me. It's Gordon Brown's apparent belief that he can just trample on the democratic will of the British people. It's at moments like this that I think the political world has gone mad, and I am alone in detecting the gigantic fraud.

They voted for Tony, and yet they now get Gordon, and a transition about as democratically proper as the transition from Claudius to Nero. It is a scandal. Why are we all conniving in this stitch-up? This is nothing less than a palace coup

The extraordinary thing is that it looks as though he will now be in 10 Downing Street for three years, and without a mandate from the British people. No one elected Gordon Brown as Prime Minister

Gordon Brown could appease public indignation over that, and secure the democratic mandate he needs, by asking the public to vote at once on him, Let's have an election without delay.

A choice between Johnson or Hunt as PM is like someone asking you what shoes you want them to wear before they kick you in the balls.

I would probably slightly prefer it to be Hunt, simply because nobody likes him and he'd be more likely to lose an election. Boris does somehow manage to maintain something of a populist appeal among Sun-reading types.
