Boris: Astute

As a piece of personal-positioning-cum-political-mischief-making, this article by Boris Johnson is well worth a read. In it, he...
  • casts doubt on the coalition economic strategy, perhaps anticipating it backfiring
  • endorses Ed Balls as the most competent leader for the opposition
  • applies a serious dig to both of the favourites for that job
  • underlines his position as candid friend to The City

There's lots to pick from there (read the whole thing) but this bit is worth repeating:
"...the People's Party is on the verge of making a historic mistake. They are about to elect one of the two Miliband brothers as their leader, when neither of these perfectly amiable north London intellectuals has ever said anything memorable about anything."
