Since he became London Mayor, Boris has had plenty of ideas. Some of them have come to fruition – the return of the Routemaster bus, the bicycle hire scheme – while others have been, er, less well received (floating airports, for example). In a new and fascinating interview with the Financial Times, the Mayor has […]

The Mayor’s Question Time is an opportunity for members of the London Assembly to quiz the mayor about aspects of his policy and governance. Boris is normally pretty adept at fending off awkward questions from the floor…until a recent meeting where it would be fair to say that he lost his rag somewhat. The Mayor […]

What do these things have in common?: A cot blanket embroidered by Spanish nuns A collection of Roald Dahl stories A three year old apple tree A tricycle in the style of a London bike hire cycle Yes, that’s right.

A new poll of Tory members has found that Boris remains the most popular choice to succeed David Cameron as leader of the Conservative party. But, while the Mayor of London was the clear favourite in May, he’s now being reeled in by the Education Secretary, Michael Gove. A survey of more than 700 grassroots […]

For a while, the Mayor’s new London airport of choice was the so-called Boris Island in the Thames Estuary. Now, however, the Mayor has unveiled a new set of options for increasing the capital’s airport capacity and has thrown his weight behind the Isle of Grain option in north Kent. The Mayor was launching Transport […]

Sometimes, researching what the Mayor’s up to can be tough. He’s not always falling over in rivers or slagging off Northern cities or hanging by his nethers up a zipwire. No, sometimes it’s fairly mundane political activity, meetings and boring stuff. So, when you see a headline like this, it’s as if you’ve been given […]

Boris has always loved a bit of bat and ball action. Ahead of the 2012 actions, the Mayor famously remarked: “I stand by my assertion that whiff-whaff and ping-pong are one and the same thing, with the ‘whiffs’ predating the ‘pongs’. Regardless of semantics though, it is a sport of which we should be proud […]

Since 1971, the Reading Festival has been one of the UK’s most important events. Over the years, The Jam, The Ramones, Meat Loaf, Nirvana, The Stone Roses and the Beastie Boys have played at the Festival but, until now, one name remained conspicuous by his absence. Now, 2013 will see Boris Johnson at the Festival. […]
