This article first appeared on ConservativeHome.

If you’d been a celebrated journalist, a successful editor, a popular television personality and a well-received MP, you could be forgiven for resting on the hard-won spoils of your success. After all, you’ve earned enough to never work again, you’ve got legions of supporters – let’s kick back and enjoy the show, you’d think.

But resting is not in the vocabulary of Boris Johnson. Having put himself up for the position of Mayor of London, he’s waded into a whole heap of unmentionables flung in his direction, not least in the last couple of weeks.

Boriswatch – Prize Draw!

08 Jul
July 8, 2006

I thought I’d take a minute to thank all the Boriswatchers for their fantastic support in the last few years. Boriswatch wouldn’t be what it is without its eagle-eyed contributors – sending in links, sightings and suggestions almost daily. Recent media appearances of Boriswatch has ramped up the site’s success, and Boriswatch would like to give something back.
So, from today until the end of July, Boriswatch would like to offer a cracking deal – if you donate 5 pounds or more to the Boriswatch coffers (which are frankly straining under the amount of visitors lately), you’ll be entered into a Boriswatch Prize Draw. Three donators will be picked at random to select their choice of item from the BorisShopCOMPLETELY FREE!
So click the donation button – either below or on the left hand panel – and cross your fingers!

It was in fact featured in their 18th April show, but better late than never, eh?! Here’s a direct link to the episode featuring the site. Good work, Boriswatchers – we’ve done it again!

Boriswatch has grown and matured like a ripe brie. So much so, in fact, that it now has its own domain, www.boriswatch.com. The old site will disappear in a few days, so make sure your bookmarks are updated…

Morning all. I’ve added a new T-shirt link on the right of the front page – it’s a link to Chargrilled.co.uk, who have taken to Boris with aplomb and produced t-shirts, hoodies and female skini-fit t-shirts for all us fine Boris fans!
