If you offered the political classes (and the general public) the chance to spray water at Boris Johnson you’d imagine you’d need half the Metropolitan Police on hand to cope with the queue. Now, though, some lucky blighter is going to get the option to blast Boris with a water cannon after the Mayor agreed […]

Will Boris be an MP after the next General Election? It’s a question that has been asked a thousand times over the last few years. And, if recent comments from the Mayor are anything to go by – well, we’re no nearer to finding out the answer. Having been accused of ‘dithering’ by backbenchers, it […]

As the Mayor of London you can be expected to be interrogated by the toughest of interviewers. Boris has certainly had his fair share of run-ins with journalists over the years, from the likes of Jeremy Paxman to a well-publicised on-air grilling from Eddie Mair. However, this week  Boris had to face his toughest pair […]

In A Box With George Osborne

Let’s face it: Ed Miliband needs all the help he can get. Despite PR stunts such as heading down to the Somerset Levels to help the flood efforts – Radio 4’s News Quiz claimed ‘he looked like a surveyor stuck in a swimming pool’ – he hardly looks nailed on to become the country’s next […]

One thing that you can say about Boris with some confidence is that you never know which controversy he’s going to wander into next. He’s as likely to fall out with the Sultan of Brunei as he is with David Cameron and so anticipating who he’s going to rub up the wrong way next is […]

You’d think that the Mayor of London should be a man who has some sympathy with the President of France. Both have seen their political lives sidelined by revelations about their private lives, although Francois Hollande seems to be doing a better job of keeping the journalists from his boudoir than Boris ever did. However, […]

The problem with making bold and sweeping claims is that, at some point, they often come back and bite you on the behind. That’s the position the Mayor found himself in this week when he was subjected to an impromptu IQ test live on the radio just days after mocking people with a low intelligence […]

Politicians and the newspapers in the UK like to have a go at pretty much everyone. Footballers, Wonga, drug users, gangs, immigrants, travellers and religious extremists have all had plenty of abuse over recent years as have, in many cases, this country’s super-rich. Now, though, the landowners and zillionaires of the UK have a staunch […]

Most of us live in a home powered by gas or electricity. Here at Boriswatch Towers we’re on an electric meter which regularly requires trips to the canteen in order to get a stack of fifty pences to keep our lights and our photocopier working. And, of course, our bills are set to go up […]

You know what it’s like. You fly half way around the world on a mission to raise the profile of your city’s links with China and who do you bump in to? Your nearest rival for that promotion you were after. Typical, eh? On a trade mission to China, the Mayor of London bumped into […]
