Quotes-by-Boris-JohnsonHe’s undoubtedly one of the most colourful characters in British politics, so I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some quotes by Boris Johnson.

He’s always been a controversial character and he’s probably loved and loathed in equal measure. However, he’s not a man easily ignored. Certainly, he can be relied upon occasionally to offer us a memorable quote.

So here are 21 quotes by Boris Johnson and my particular favourite is definitely No 1. I’m sure when it comes to cake we’re all pro-having-it and pro-eating it.

Enjoy them all and please feel free to share them with your friends.
