Boris has come up with plenty of bonkers ideas in his time. Cross-Thames cable cars. An airport in the sea. Becoming a politician (guffaw). Now, though, the Mayor has come up with an absolute belter: he wants to build a floating village on the Thames in East London. According to LBC, Bozza is looking for […]

Bozza is no stranger to television. He’s appeared on countless shows through the years, from his famous guest slots on Have I Got News For You right through to a bizarre cameo in BBC soap-opera Eastenders. Now, though, Boris is getting his own show where he is set to play…himself. The Metro has revealed that […]

You know how it is. You don’t hear anyone use the word ‘jelly’ as an insult for years, and then the same person uses it twice in a matter of days. Happens all the time. Boris has used the last few days to bandy about the ‘jelly’ insult as if it was going out of […]

Foxing the Public

One of the most astonishing things about Boris is that he has the ability to say anything and get away with it. He could argue that black was white, then argue the following day that black was black. We might think it odd, but then we shrug our shoulders, say “Well, it’s Boris” and get […]

Next caller: Boris from Islington

Every week, Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg settles down for his phone-in show on London radio station LBC. It’s a chance for Londoners to ask the Deputy Prime Minister questions, and so one of the capital’s more, er, famous residents decided to get in on the act this week. The Mayor of London posed as […]

You’re Through To Boot Camp

One of the problems facing young people is London is the limited number of places that are available at the business end of the X-Factor. Thousands of ambitious teenagers head to the auditions and yet Gary Barlow only gets to see a few of them at the Boot Camp stage of the competition. And what’s […]

So, the Prime Minister has finally clarified his position on Europe. If he wins the next General Election and he’s still Prime Minster after that and if (and this is a big if) he can negotiate repatriated powers from the European Union that satisfy him and (and this is another big if) his party then […]

So, then, a poll to find the UK’s most influential man. On the panel are important citizens including PR mastermind Matthew Freud, Liberty director Shami Chakrabarti, Sir Philip Green, Daily Mail editor-in-chief Paul Dacre, president of the Royal Society Sir Paul Nurse, Richard Branson and co-director of the Serpentine Gallery Hans Ulrich Obrist. Clearly, they’ll […]

Forget the Prime Minister, the Labour leader or Nick Clegg (as many people already have): Boris has been voted the nation’s favourite politician. The Daily Star reports that the London Mayor ‘topped a festive poll on who the country wants to see more of in 2013’. Boris took 30% of the online vote for MSN, […]
