The intention of this infographic is that it will display the “best” Boris Johnson quotes in an eye-catching manner.
The following quotes should form the basis of the infographic:
"My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive."
"My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters."
"My policy on cake is pro having it and pro eating it."
"My speaking style was criticised by no less an authority than Arnold Schwarzenegger. It was a low moment, my friends, to have my rhetorical skills denounced by a monosyllabic Austrian cyborg."
"There is absolutely no one, apart from yourself, who can prevent you, in the middle of the night, from sneaking down to tidy up the edges of that hunk of cheese at the back of the fridge."
"I forgot that to rely on a train, in Blair's Britain, is to engage in a crapshoot with the devil"
"I've always known my life would be turned into a farce"
“I don't see why people are so snooty about Channel 5. It has some respectable documentaries about the Second World War. It also devotes considerable airtime to investigations into lap dancing, and other related and vital subjects.”
"As I write these words there are semi-naked women playing beach volleyball in the middle of the Horse Guards Parade immortalised by Canaletto. They are glistening like wet otters and the water is splashing off the brims of the spectators’ sou’westers."
“We come now to what we in City Hall call Operation Juddering Climax."
“It’s like an intergalactic spear. Like the tip of a cocktail stick emerging through the skin of a pickled onion.” (when referring to The Shard)
