My One Piece of Advice

guybaumannMy One Piece of Advice is a site dreamt up by Guy Baumann, asking public figures to give one piece of advice in order to help the rest of us. A noble idea, Boriswatch thinks.
He’s asked 19 public figures so far – and only one has bothered to reply. Can anyone guess which one?
Yep, it’s our very own Boris Johnson! Here’s the jubilant blog post from Guy. Boris’s pearls of wisdom are these:

“Work hard and never give up.”

I think we can all agree with that, can’t we, Boriswatchers?

    That is an absolutely fantastic piece of advice for anyone. Particularly the last part.

    This was a very good idea by Guy Baumann. I love the Mayor’s reply and it is a pity nobody else answered. Hope he gets some more replies.

    Guy, provoke the public figures you have asked for a comment by sending them the Mayor’s comment, and then ask for their comment once more.

    Your idea is such a good one, so as the Mayor wisely advised, DON’T GIVE UP!!!!!!

    Guy, you HAVE to ask Ken Livingstone for his comment! One thing you can be absolutely sure of…. he will make sure it is much bigger than Boris’s!!!
