Home Counties Hooray For London Mayor: Boris Johnson Is Doomed

by | 17th, July 2007

BORIS to beat Ken. Sadly, I doubt it. Ken Livingstone’s a miserablist sod. But you know what he stands for.

What does Boris mean? That’s right: media coverage. Lots of it.

And I give him no chance with the likes of Mike Reid backing him to the hilt:

That said I’m happy to support Boris in any way necessary and have discussed the mayoral situation with his charming father, Stanley.

It’s essential for Boris to be much, much tougher on the persistently antisocial, making sure that rapists, murderers and paedophiles have no place, and never will, on the streets of London, and will not threaten civilised society.

I’ve spoken to lots of young kids in gangs or “crews” as they prefer to be known and most want to get out of a way of life that gives them nothing. Get in there … understand their problems and give them access to sporting facilities and the chance to make music, act, dance and write. Get them integrated into society and to realise its value.

I’d like to see Boris push for a police officer on every tube entrance/exit so that underground miscreants know that their exit route is effectively sealed…

As I’ve decided not to stand, I’m going to get behind the man who is. I’ll be available, if needed, to help Boris raise London’s spirit and profile and become London mayor.

If that’s his support, can you imagine his foe?

Stephan Shakespeare at Conservative Home: “The suggestion that Boris Johnson might run for London Mayor will be greeted with almost universal delight. Whether this is delight at the prospect of victory, or of a feast of comedy, is the vital question: would a Boris candidacy be about the future of London, or would it just be a hugely enjoyable romp with Boris the entertainer?”

Thanks for the laughs Boris. You got us watching the contest. Now let’s all watch you lose…
