BORIS IS MAYOR OF LONDON!

02 May
May 2, 2008

He’s done it! Undercover word has reached us (7pm) that Boris has won the race to be Mayor of London, scoring a commanding lead over his rival Ken Livingstone. It will be confirmed soon.
This is a new golden era for Boriswatchers everywhere. He has attained one of the highest political positions in the country, and is the powerful Conservative politician in the land.  I’ve been privy to the many, many messages of support coming into Boris over the last few weeks, and it’s clear that many people – even in other countries – will be ecstatic.
I’m off to crack open some much-needed bubbly and celebrate this momentous day. Cheers, Boriswatchers!

Celebrate with a Boris t-shirt!

UPDATE 8.30pm: The Evening Standard, Sky News and The Telegraph have now called it for Boris!

Here is David Cameron’s response to the election of Mayor Boris:

    As much as I hope Boris becomes mayor, I do not think he will win on first preferences alone. I have heard that the result will be announced around 10pm.

    GOOD LUCK BORIS!!

    Now is the time to put in your price-rigged bid to redo his website. The thing has crashed from traffic, so for now you’ve got a monopoly.
