Dear Boriswatchers, Boriswatch Towers got mildly tainted yesterday by the expenses scandal and wants to clear up a couple of points: 1. The site Boriswatch.com has never received funding by Boris Johnson or anyone connected with him. The site is wholly independent – but rather likes him. 😉 2. If people asked before publishing, they […]

Harnessing your feedback – a new little tab

The ideas and posts for Boriswatch often stem from you guys – fellow Boridwatchers with a keen eye for Boris-based details. So, we’ve decided to harness that power. See the little blue “Feedback” tab half-way up the far right of every Boriswatch page? That, my friends, is a new way to contact Boriswatch Towers if […]

Boris talks paddling and politics

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. […]

Boris makes a splash

As you will no doubt know by now (the coverage has been political light-relief on a dire week of political combustion), Boris fell into a river this week. It’s just as contortingly amusing as it sounds – The news sites have been cock-a-hoop, and twitter has been ablaize with people either laughing or holding the […]

Boris gets into Phloging

Into WHAT? Even Boriswatch had to look that up. Apparently it’s Phone Blogging – or “online audio postcards”, as the marketing has it – and Boris and his team are showing their cutting edge credentials by getting a phlog started while Bozza is at the C40 Climate Change conference in Korea. Updates will be announced […]

Boris likes a good ale

We can imagine that Boris likes to sit down with a good, stout ale and puff away on a hearty cigar, setting the world to rights with that unfeasably large lexicon of his. Indeed, when promoting Cask Ale Week 2009 this week he noted, “There is nothing better then chatting to an old friend over […]

Has the buffoon disappeared?

A piece in The Telegraph today assesses where the Boris the Buffoon persona has gone, and takes in his first year of Mayordom in a positive, glowing light. “Has Boris Johnson left the buffoon behind?“  argues that while there have been a couple of episodes Boris would rather forget, the overall path the administration is […]

Snow sign of impartiality here, Boris

Anti-Boris blogs are cockahoop with the news today that Boris stormed out of the Transport Select Committee investigating the reponse of the Mayor and his team to the blankets of lovely snow we experienced earlier this year. The upside? Boris described the layering of snow, grit, snow then more grit “grit-snow lasagne”, which has earned […]

Mr & Mrs Smith get into bed with Boris

Boriswatch Towers had a great time this morning, sifting through the many online April Fools gags. However, Mr & Mrs Smith, the boutique hotel specialists, involved Boris and his hatred of bendy buses in an elaborate gag. They claimed that Boris was turning decommissioned bendy buses into travelling hotels. Five-star hotel accommodation on wheels sounds […]
