Boris’s education policies have been the focus of a couple of our recent entries here at Boriswatch Towers, with mixed opinions as to their expected success. However, today we’re pleased to report an announcement that should hopefully please everyone: Boris has stated plans to offer approximately one thousand apprenticeships every year within the Greater London […]

After our recent look at Peter Hendy, Boris’s Transport for London chief, building.co.uk have run a fascinating article that gives a glimpse into the mind of another one of BoJo’s closest advisors — this time the man described as his chief of staff and planning guru, Sir Simon Milton. While his name might not be […]

Fans of Boris from outside London can rejoice: you might be getting a Mayor of your very own. According to the Times, David Cameron is laying out plans to allow a referendum on whether or not other big cities in the UK would like an elected official to hold the same position as BoJo. As […]

Away from all of the recent attention being giving to the snowfall over London, life in the Capital has been going on as normal — and for Boris, that includes preparing to attend a conference on education to be given later this week. Much of the focus at the conference is expected to revolve around […]

Never afraid to speak his mind, Boris has once again made the headlines for daring to comment on the Carol Thatcher’s recent Golliwog comments on the BBC. However, contrary (perhaps) to expectations, he’s said that the BBC’s decision to fire her is unnecessarily harsh — which, given the furore over Sachsgate, is likely to raise […]

It’s said that if you want to get inside the mind of a General, the first place you should go is to his Colonels. With that in mind, it’s perhaps strange that the people who report directly to Boris get such little airtime and recognition, especially outside the capital itself. However, This is London is […]

Recent reports in the Mail show that Boris has a raft of new plans for helping to keep the London economy ticking over in these almost-recession times, one of which may involve scrapping the congestion charges altogether. He’s already spoken about his plans to cut back the western extension, but now it’s looking as though […]

No, that’s not what determines the legislation that comes out of the Mayoral office — it’s how good ol’ BoJo described his barnet upon winning an award for best celebrity hair this week. And rightly so. We here at BorisWatch towers have always been rather a fan of Boris’s do — in fact, several of […]

Dear Boris, Now, you know how we feel about you here at BorisWatch towers. We think you’re great. Really. Generally speaking, we think your policy decisions are marvellous, and as for your hair… well, it really is something spectacular.
