When: Tonight (30th March 2009) Channel 4, 8pm Dispatches, the current affairs investigative programme, is devoted entirely to Boris tonight. Rumours abound that the showing won’t be as pro-Boris as Boriswatch hoped – the byline “Do Boris’s ideas really stack up” doesn’t ooze confidance – but it should still be an interesting programme. Not least […]

My 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? […]

BBC (via last.fm) Just a quick note: an increasingly rare public media appearance by Boris is tonight, 8pm GMT on BBC Radio 4. The show, Any Questions, debates the big topics of the day – think Question Time for radio. Here’s the link to listen – click the Listen Live button on the top right […]

The thrashing of Ken at the Mayoral election was a joy to behold. And it looks like we’re going to get another showing – Ken has announced that he will run for Mayor in 2012! Boriswatch is fairly confident that he will have a tough fight on his hands – recently, Sir Alan Sugar was […]

Enterprising web folks have launched TweetBorisTweet, a site where visitors can vote on a new background for Boris’s Twitter page! Boris has become on of the most followed UK twitterers, even though cynics might claim he doesn’t necessarily do the tweeting himself. However, gems do appear from time to time – take this one from […]

Just a short note on a dismal Saturday morning. We couldn’t ignore this crucial breaking news in the papers: Lily Allen: Why I’ve got the hots for Boris Johnson. At least Boris has options…

Image by wallyg via Flickr Boris doled out this year’s London Planning Awards last night, managing to rubbish the winning design company More London Developments before giving them a Best Built Project award. More London Developments helped develop the More London site, on which City Hall (known as The Great Big Pickled Onion by Boris, […]

Image by Getty Images via Daylife Keith Vaz has never been squeaky clean. A quick look at his Wikipedia entry shows a political entry dominated by controversy – the Filkin inquiry, the Hinduja affair, suspension from the Commons. He is, in short, either a dubious fellow or incredibly unlucky. Which makes it all the more […]

Right Snow, Wrong Quantities

Once again, Boris’s knack for a soundbite sums up the day’s events. Interviewed on BBC New earlier, Boris explained why the buses aren’t running, how bikes’s are a snow-bashing alternative, and how it is the right snow, but the wrong quantities. It also is a great example of Boris giving information back to the public, […]

In an excellent move, Boris has cancelled the congestion charge today -  although even getting into the congestion charge zone may be a tricky prospect at the moment. In fact, Boriswatch Towers is completely immersed in the snow that blanketed Britain last night, and there’s plenty more to come. Wrap up warm, Boriswatchers! In other […]
