BORIS JOHNSON MP
Written by: Boris Johnson, MP for Henley-on-Thames
Yes, this really is the blog of the tousle-haired Conservative MP. It’s a bit bumbling on the surface, but that disguises an honesty, keen organisation and depth that put many rivals into the shade; rather like the man himself, in fact.

“I think it was the word of last year rather than this year,” he said.
“Now we’re getting words that derive from it such as ‘blogosphere’ and so on,” he said.
“But,” he added, “it’s a pretty recent thing and in the way that this happens these days it’s got established very quickly.”
