Boris Johnson: Cameron delivers a message

At the Spectator Parliamentarian of the Year Awards dinner last night, as the magazine’s blog reports, David Cameron said the following:

“I think the great thing about the Spectator is your extraordinary heritage, the remarkable figures who’ve sat in the editor’s chair.  I’m thinking of people like Iain Macleod, Nigel Lawson and obviously not forgetting my own particular favourite.  We went to the same school, the same university and of course I’ve got a soft spot for him.  A man of high intelligence and huge ambition.  An irresistible charmer with an enviable head of hair.  Always bursting with brilliant turns of phrase and bright ideas.  Yes, my kind of political maverick… Ian Gilmour.  I’m not quite sure what went wrong for Ian.  I suppose he rubbed the Prime Minister up the wrong way and never really recovered.  Shit happens.  Anyway, there’s always the chance of becoming our ambassador in Pristina I suppose.”
