Britain’s Most Influential Man

By December 3, 2011News

There are lots of influential men in Britain.  David Cameron.  Sir Philip Green.  Richard Branson.  Simon Cowell.  Prince William.  George Osborne.  Hugh Grant [ahem – Boriswatch Ed]

However, none are in the same league as Boris who has been voted GQ magazine’s Most Influential Man in Britain 2012.

The men’s magazine said: “When he says jump, the Prime Minister tries to guess how high.”

Boris climbed from 15th place in last year’s table. Placing Bozza top of the list, the judges said: “When Boris comes back from holiday, as he did during the London riots, David Cameron comes back. When Boris says he’s wearing a morning suit to the royal wedding, Cameron performs an embarrassing sartorial U-turn.”

The magazine also reported that the possibility that he could run for the Commons while serving in City Hall was crucial to placing him at the top of the list.

David Cameron came in second place, but his deputy, Nick Clegg, was the biggest loser, falling 24 places in the list to 34th position. Other big fallers included Simon Cowell, down 17 places, and Richard Caring, owner of Le Caprice restaurant, down 12 positions.
