Card or cad?

Boris Johnson obviously thinks he's a bit of a card, but anyone else who's read Arnold Bennett (and if you haven't you should) will know that, in addition to being identified with the great cause of cheering us all up, Denry Machin wasn't exactly a model of civic virtue.

And at least he put some thought into his enterprises. On the other hand, "recruiting the ablest people across London, of whatever political affiliation, to formulate new policies...." doesn't sound like the outcome of prolonged or deep strategic thinking. I mean, we'd all get someone in to do the dirty work if we could.
