Although he can come across as a nice but dim on HIGNFY I've always been impressed when I've seen href="http://www.boris-johnson.com/index.html">Boris in serious mode on things like Question Time. Although he is more of a euro-sceptic than I'd like I always take time to listen to his arguments. Howard must of been mad to put him on the spot. If my boss asked me to comment on tabloid stories about my private life I'd tell him it was none of his business. If any shenanigans have been going on the only person he has to answer to is his wife and I don't really see why I should know about it. An MP who may make a mistake his private life I can accept (we are after all human) more than an MP lying in the seat of our democracy.
