Boris: I'm a pre-masticating anorak

Boris Johnson came to speak at the Local Government Association conference today and was, well, Boris.

He did manage to describe himself as an anorak.

And claimed to be in favour of pre-masticating policy - whatever that means.

"Pre-masticating policy"

Policy-making before meal times perhaps?

(When canvassing I often observe that Tories are keen masticators.)

After all, he once entreated colleagues to "Go back to your homes and prepare for breakfast".

Or does he see the policy-making machine as being a bit like a cow?

Perhaps if he had used one of his favourite Latin phrases it might have made more sense.
