Boris Johnson says he makes models of buses to relax


What do you do to relax?
What do you do to switch off? I like to paint. Oh I make
things. I like to … – What do you make? – I make, I have a thing
where I make models of, when I was mayor
of London, we built beautiful … I make buses. – You make models of buses?
– I make models of buses. – So they’re gonna be
in Downing Street? – So what I do, well I don’t
make models of buses. What I make is, I get old,
I don’t know, wooden crates, right? And then I paint them
and they have two, I suppose it’s a wine,
it’s a box that’s been used to contain two wine
bottles, right? And it will have a
dividing thing. I turn it into a bus and
I put passengers. You really wanna know this?
– You’re making buses, cardboard buses. OK,
that’s what you do to enjoy yourself. – No, I paint the passengers
enjoying themselves on the wonderful bus.

  1. A Special Needs child explaining his downtime coping mechanisms to his Mental Health Professional.
    Give him crayons and a colouring book and let's all move on with our lives?

  2. aaaaaaaaa…. paint…..I make things… I like to… I make… that's your next PM? This is one of the main voice for Brexit? OMG people. Wake up!

  3. Boris is deliberately being funny here to take the piss out of the interviewer asking meaningless questions about his private life. Boris for PM

  4. one stupid lie after another ๐Ÿ˜ซ…..his contempt for everyone is astonishing…..well….what u expect๐Ÿค”…..hes a Tory after all….๐Ÿ˜ค

  5. Itโ€™s a lie designed to push his other bus lie of a nonexistent Brexit NHS dividend, further down the google search engine. Itโ€™s a calculated manipulation to try and bury his lie with more lies.

  6. Why not just say "I like to close local services, leave the missus and squander tax payers money on water cannons and magic bridges". At least that would have been honest.

  7. Surely everybody in the Conservative party knows this guy is incompetent. But if he wins votes and is able to keep the Conservative party alive for a little bit longer theyโ€™ll go with it.
    Thereโ€™s a Chinese saying that states to be careful of the beast you ride because it will end up eating you.
    I think this will be true for the Republicans in the US and the conservatives in the U.K.

  8. The wheels on the Boris go round and round, round and round all day long. Seriously, He could end up being PM??

  9. I wonder whatโ€™s happened to Johnson. Only a few years ago he was impressively eloquent and witty in a debate with Mary Beard about the legacy of Classical Greece vs. Rome (itโ€™s on YouTube). Words and erudition flowed without pause or hesitation. His answers to questions were detailed and incisive. Now itโ€™s like listening to a different person. Heโ€™s hardly spoken in public for almost a year and even finds it hard work to describe making a model bus.

  10. โ€œWine Boddlesโ€
    To paraphrase Alan Partridge, itโ€™s interesting how he substitutes a โ€œdโ€ for a โ€œtโ€. Itโ€™s the behaviour of a dwad and a dosser.

  11. The Aussie points based immigration system he is so keen on awards points for fluency in English and skills. This chump wouldn't score very highly on either.

  12. ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ ุณูŠุงุณูŠ ู†ุงุฌุญ .

  13. I dont believe Johnson is an interesting enough person to have such an off-beat hobby. I imagine he is pretty one-dimensional, and I cant imagine anything interests him other than acquiring money and holding power over others.

  14. ูƒูŠู ุตู†ุน ูƒุฐุจู‡ ูˆ ุงุณุชุทุฑุฏ ููŠู‡ุง ูˆุงู„ู„ู‡ ู…ู‚ุทุน ู…ุง ูŠู†ุทูุด ู…ู†ู‡ ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚

  15. Why is he making it up! He could simply say I read a book or go for a walk… my goodness this will be our PM!

  16. *bus enthusiasts when describing their hobby to interrogating passengers*
    Boris, I feel you man… :/

  17. This was a tactical answer. By saying "I make model buses" he's getting the internet algorithms changed. The absurd answer gets reported on and it pushes the news stories of the ยฃ350 billion bus down and down until people 'hopefully' forget.

  18. That isn't his hobby at all – he said it so that when people google 'Boris Johnson Bus' this comes up instead of the ยฃ350 million to the NHS bus

  19. The second thing he falls up on … is that the dividers are vertical not horizontal … so they won't create a double decker !

  20. "A box that's been used to contain 2 wine bottles, for example". Yes, we get the picture. A controlled alcoholic.

  21. Between Trump's racist tweets and Boris Johnson's serial killer arts & crafts, I think we're going to be juuuuuuuust fine………….

  22. Does no one else think this is a careful act of manipulation designed to take attention away from his ยฃ350,000,000/week Brexit lie, as opposed to a hapless eccentric making up something on the spot in order to avoid actually talking about how he likes to spend his free time?

  23. Google algorithm wouldn't allow covering up the big red brexit bus scheme for sure, but I can't wait until the next pathetic attempt.

  24. Now try to search on the internet these two words:
    ''Boris Bus''
    and we get this !
    .

    A genial chap with a harmless hobby.
    .

    .. and not a lie about 350 million a week for the NHS on his infamous Brexit Bus
    .

  25. He seemed annoyed when he kept asking him to explain like โ€œdamn I gotta elaborate on this bs heโ€™s not buying itโ€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

  26. Wait, Iโ€™m not clear what means here. Is it an English thing, or is it literally? I think something is lost in translation for me. I was born in NYC,N.Y

  27. Heโ€™s talking about buses because he knows it will be viral meme burying his NHS bus advertisement lies deep in the google search engine

  28. He is saying this to obfuscate computer searches for the infamous Boris Bus (NHS promise).It is a clever intelligence ploy.

  29. What a lot of people don't know, this was a masterstroke by Johnston, when he got his facts totally wrong about immigration on the big red bus during the brexit campaign, criticism followed him around, now when people google him and bus, they get this, it was a great diversion by his spin doctor..
