A wonderful description of Boris Johnson in the recent BBC debate among candidates for the role of Prime Minister. When I read this, I thought, ‘That’s it, that’s how he looked!’  The hungry Buddha looks on course to be the next PM.

‘As Stewart squirmed and stretched, Boris Johnson maintained the ill-tempered countenance of a hungry Buddha whose dinner plans had been disrupted by lesser beings.’
