Boris Johnson’s greatest hits: his top five video blunders

In the aftermath of yesterday’s hilarious footage of Boris Johnson stuck dangling from a zip wire in Hackney, here’s a top five rundown of the blonde-haired buffoon’s best video moments — from the hilarious to the frankly worrying.

1) Going for a swim — Classic Boris, the bumbling mayor goes for a tumble into the Thames:

2) The wiff-waff speech — at the handover of the Olympic games, at the end of Beijing 2008, Boris delivers this incomprehensible ramble about ping-pong, or something:

3) Boris vs Germany — Boris’ tackle in this England vs Germany game isn’t exactly in the Olympic spirit:

4) Chickenfeed — Boris describes his £250k salary from News International as “chickenfeed“:

5) NewsCorp Questions — Boris describes questions about his links to NewsCorp as “f**king bollocks“. Except they weren’t, were they Boris?

And this is the man who pollsters reckon would slash Labour’s lead, were he Tory leader.

    Great footage. The best one, you missed, was when Boris had just come back to his house after jogging or cycling to find a number of reporters wanting to question him about his affair. If I remember right, he said it was all being sorted out and hope he will be forgiven, only to find that the locks have been changed or bolted and he was locked out on the door step.

    I’m not entirely sure any of these actually did him any harm?
