Boris - The Unique Tory

So the last week or so was not terribly good news if you happened to be a senior cabinet minister who thought you could grab a bit of Olympic goodwill by presenting medals.  George Osborne was booed loudly; Theresa May had her turn the following day, booed just a little less loudly.  But what if you're the elected politician with the biggest personal mandate in the country (and the second biggest in Western Europe)?  The Tory who has the closest political link to the London Olympics?  Why then, you give a speech that puts the Prime Minister in the shade, reveals your remarkable crowd empathy and has the masses cheering and laughing.  Once again, addressing the Team/Paralympic GB Victory Parade in Trafalgar Square, Boris shows why he's the Unique Tory.
