Boris Johnson - Ping Pong is coming home!!!

I've just had the supreme pleasure of watching Boris Johnson giving his London Olympics handover speech. This is a speech to remember. Forget timing, forget polish and forget spin, this is how to give a speech. You too can enjoy Boris's speech by clicking HERE. don't miss it.

Poor old Gordon Brown can only look on and wonder how Boris makes it look so easy.

Thanks to DB in the comments for pointing out that it is now on youtube, enjoy:

I Albion,

It's the 2012 logo in a Union Jack colours. Much prefer it to the crazy pink and yellow.

Who is that weirdo on Johnson's right? The one who grins and makes really odd hand gestures...

Great speech :)

This Spanish journalist calls Boris "a true hero of the last day of the Olympics" according to Google Translate. And just in case anybody needs to know, the Spaninsh for "Ping pong is coming home" is "El ping-pong vuelve a casa", apparently.

Brown carefully kept off camera as he is upstaged by Boris. Pathetic.

Here's a mug with the ping-pong phrase I designed in case anyone wants a keepsake of Boris' now famous quote!

Sorry about the blatant plug, just thought people might like this...

Also can get it as a cap, t-shirt or canvas bag.

Brilliant!

Pablo the Scot said...

That was brilliant - I laughed so much I cried. It was made even sweeter by seeing that idiot Brown hanging around looking lost!

With all respect to all nations, I am trying not to be racist but isn't it a bit strange that whoever is a Jew or partly Jew in this country or anywhere across the world usualy holds influential position? Is it only me who noticed it or maybe I discovered something which everybody already knows?
