PlayRadioUK published a rare live (nowadays, anyway) interview with Boris yesterday, as the results came in on the local elections. The 8 minute audio interview talking to Iain Dale is a bit of a gem – it really sounds as though Boris has kept the humour but added a bit of gravity to his views. Well, all apart from the kickoff question – “are you a bit damp from your experiences in the river?”, a reference to his very Boris-like fall into a river while being filmed the other day (here’s the story and video in case you missed it). Boris announces, tongue in cheek, that it was a “brilliantly engineered publicity stunt” to get “saturation coverage”. Brilliant!
So here’s the interview – it kicks off at about 1min 30secs.
