Boris goes on the menu in Papua New Guinea

Our Man , Boris, appears to on the menu again for the ritual of manufactured offense and BBC enforced apology making again. Radio 4's PMwere having great great fun putting on the high commissioner for Papua New Guinea - who did her best to pretend that she was offended at Boris' comparisons of her historic country men with the cannibalism breaking out in the Labour party. (Nobodies been eaten in PNG for over 200 yrs according to her - which is more than you can say for the Labour party right now.)

Our man Boris was having none of it citing he'd read about this sort of thing going on somewhere ( National Geographic or such perhaps) - he was sorry the commissioner was offended but felt his comments were factually correct ( the BBC of course has a different take having listened to the same words - they prefer Boris was forced to apologise - I wonder why ?). The Commissioner was never fed the question by the reporter on taking offence at her countrymen being compared to the discredited self interested and failing Labour party, but perhaps that goes against PM left wing policy.

Good luck Boris - your a man of substance ! Which is why they may grant you that visa to go and 'find out for yourself' with the now compulsory penitence visit. ( You may wish to ensure you get a return ticket ).

This is of course all just absurd - manufactured rage by the BBC to deal with the crisis of their beloved Labour party tearing itself apart like a bunch of New Guinea cannibals and chief killers - damn now I'll have to join Boris on the plane.....

Just in case you missed Boris said - in the Daily Telegraph which means it must be true:

"For 10 years we in the Tory Party have become used to Papua New Guinea-style orgies of cannibalism and chief-killing, and so it is with a happy amazement that we watch as the madness engulfs the Labour Party."

If anyone else had made those comments, it wouldn't have made headlines, but that's our Boris...

I wish he was someone else's Boris. I guarantee you at a critical point near to or during the next general election Boris will put his foot in it. Put money on it.

I guess he's our John Prescott - though perhaps that's going to far ( but there are certain simularities ... ), crikey.

I share you dread of pre-election Boris activity. Then perhaps we'll see if David Cameron can get away with dismissing it as "Boris will be Boris".

But the electorate are not fools - they know Boris (better than the rest of the shadow cabinet I bet). They like him - and making the public like the party is the central mission DC is on, so I think he's much more of a asset than a liability.
