Things got out of hand & we’d had a few drinks. We smashed the place up and Boris set fire to the toilets.”

    Funny how that quote has really caught everyone’s imagination. I wrote, *cough*, sorry, found it in a book of quotes. It has flown round Twitter, Facebook and is now being published on blogs and elsewhere. I have even had emails from people asking for a reference for it.

    1. Jon Lansman says:

      Oh dear….. but if it’s everywhere, it’s a shame not to tell a perfectly good story which is entirely true to the nature of Bullingdon man even if Dave didn’t utter the words himself.

  2. Syzygy says:

    Whatever the provenance of the quote … it just sums this government up.

    But if it’s not true, then to form an opinion based on it is literally, insane. Sorry to be a bore, I’m sure you’d LIKE it to be a true quote (me too), but it isn’t. Using fictional events as an argument to substantiate your beliefs is you having unsubstantiated beliefs.
