Boris Johnson held together an usually smooth analogy on the Andrew Marr Show today, managing to steer clear of mops, brooms, and even his beloved Classical world.

In an attack on Labour’s economic record, the Mayor said:

“They made a huge mistake in putting all their political chips on the square marked ‘economic gloom, failure’ – their entire pitch to the people is that things are going to get worse. So the minute people’s confidence starts to return, they’ll say to Balls and to Miliband ‘you were the guys who crashed the car, we seem to have got out of the ditch... why on earth would we give the keys back to you?’.”

If you’re wondering where such coherence came from, look no further than across the pond, as it seems to have an eerie resemblance to some of Barack Obama’s polemics on the Republicans.

 

Who knows, maybe Boris is making a pitch to be US President after all?
