If society collapsed and there were no shops to buy food from and not enough time to grow crops and my family and two cats were starving, I would cook and eat the family to keep me and the cats going 'til we could find something better.

Actually it's good that only 199 people in the country voted for May to be PM, it'll stop me staring suspiciously at faces in the street

When a reporter said he had a few people to apologise to first such as US President Obama - referring to previous ill-judged comments - he said: "The United States will be at the front of the queue."

Apologies for the mix-up with Boris in Foreign Office. I wrote "F OFF" next to his name and the intern got confused.

The UN's cultural organisation has listed 17 works by pioneering Franco-Swiss architect Le Corbusier as world heritage sites. Le Corbusier developed a residential housing principle called Unité d'Habitation - he thought the tower block was the solution for re-housing the masses that had been displaced during World War Two.

"Boris," he said, "you're turning into a penguin. Stop it." "But that's not the point!" raged Boris. "The point is that I am now a perfectly safe penguin!"
