In Boris … it was as if I’d finally encountered the ‘real’ Oxford, the Platonic ideal. While the rest of us were works-in-progress, vainly trying on different personae, Boris was the finished article. He was an instantly recognizable character from the comic tradition in English letters: a pantomime toff.
He was Sir Toby Belch in Twelfth Night demanding more cakes and ale, Bertie Wooster trying to pass himself off as Eustace H. Plimsoll when appearing in court after overdoing it on Boat Race night. Yet at the same time fizzing with vim and vinegar—“bursting with spunk,” as he once put it, explaining why he needs so many different female partners. He was a cross between Hugh Grant and a silverback gorilla.

Boris Johnson, the former mayor of London, will become the UK's next prime minister after winning the Conservative Party leadership ballot.
He beat rival Jeremy Hunt with 66 per cent of the vote.
The result of the leadership contest was announced at a party meeting in London with Mr Johnson and Mr Hunt sitting in the front row.
Mr Johnson thanked his "formidable opponent," and joked that he plans to now steal Mr Hunt's "excellent ideas" when he becomes prime minister.
He promised his audience he would deliver on his campaign mantra: "Deliver Brexit, unite the country and defeat [Opposition Leader] Jeremy Corbyn."
Pointing out that this spelled "DUD," he said that he would add "energise" to his slogan.
"I say to all the doubters: DUDE, we are going to energise the country!" Mr Johnson said to laughs and groans in the crowd.
