I have long maintained that posterity will view Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, as the greatest statesman of this or any other age. Here he is in today's Torygraph promoting free trade. He is, of course, absolutely right, as he always is. He also gives the great unwashed anti-capitalist protestors a well-deserved kicking:
In student bedsits and in terrace Kensington houses, the alienated children of the middle classes are planning to subvert the G20 summit. Across the desolate wastes of the Leftie internet, their wrathful campfires are already burning ...and - what is even more endearing - he throws in a Tolkien reference for good measure:
... and when April dawns they will surge like the orcs of Mordor in the general direction of the Bank of England.
