It was one of those moments when you had to pinch yourself…
Elections are for winning!
Boris in the North West
A fantastic time was had by all when Boris went to Wirral, Chester and Manchester for the day.
When he emerged from the London to Runcorn train journey who should he see to electrify him back to life? None other than Cherie! The timing couldn’t have been better choreographed as out whooshed the Special Branch entourage – to make way for Cherie and Boris precisely in step and face to face for a lively tête-à-tête as they walked over from platform, crossing bridge, to waiting cars. “What brings you here?” she asked …
To follow was a lunch in Hoylake in a packed hotel where signed books were flying around and Boris was welcomed with open arms and forgiven for his earlier comments about near neighbours.
Then … on to Chester for a walkabout around the city including Waterstones to sign books. To round off was a champagne reception and Evening Extravanganza Dinner at Old Trafford.
Everyone who heard Boris was left feeling tremendously buoyant about life in general and bursting with a will to go out and do everything possible to help the Conservative cause. “Elections are for winning” he said.
Some ladies said: “He’s the sort of character we need – we need many more Borises!” The atmosphere was bubbly to say the least – everyone felt an impulse to grab leaflets and start doorstep canvassing straightaway. Such is the madness that Boris instils!
*Mood = let’s limber up for an election*
