Koran recitation? Or, maybe, Protocols of the Elders of Zion in original Russian?

#3 As the result of a misspent youth I can assure you that BoJo is fact reciting the opening lines of the Iliad starting with:

μῆνιν ἄειδε θεὰ Πηληϊάδεω Ἀχιλῆος
οὐλομένην, ἣ μυρί' Ἀχαιοῖς ἄλγε' ἔθηκε,

("Sing, goddess, of the rage/wrath/anger/reallypissedoffedness of Peleus' son Achilles...")

You know the rest. Channeling the patriarchy bigly.

#5 *happy sigh* A long time ago I could recite the first page or so of the Iliad in English, which is not at all the same. How much less clever and educated his listeners must have felt — on what clearly was one of the intellectual shows the BBC is so proud of.

#6 Have to admit I'm not in the slightest bit impressed with this, he's supposed to be getting on with getting brexit done.
