#DangleBoris Super Mayor

His Grace has not laughed so much in months.

Possibly years.

Very, very amusing.

Why on earth is he wearing that pansy crash helmet?
Almost as bad as Michael Dukakis in the tank.
For sure his next political challenger will dig this up.

So what's it all about? .. this craze for having our figureheads drop in from the sky?

Ken Livingstone invented from scratch the idea that the Mayor of London ought to be a politician. When the position was first mooted, and indeed for some time after the legislation providing for it had come into effect, it was assumed that it was going to be filled by a showbusiness personality, probably Barbara Windsor.

And now, that has come to pass. The Mayor of London may not be Barbara Windsor. But he is undeniably a showbusiness personality rather than a politician. Oh, well, that office has very limited executive responsibility for anything, since London is still run as it has been ever since the abolition of the GLC, mostly by central government quangos, though with the Borough Councils taking care of the rest when not obliged to contract it out to companies that fund the Conservative Party or the shadowy network of organisations and institutions that make up New Labour In Exile, if not both.

The position of Prime Minister, however, is not like that at all.

Emulating the unspeakably dangerous Arabfly Dangleway ( er ... "emirates air line") pumped-up in short time as an advertising stunt for Boris, until a plane crashes into it, I suppose?

rather like vx nerve gas, livingstone is one of the things that i wish had never been invented, as it becomes everyone's containment problem and can be extremely dangerous when deployed in the service of fanatics, but for some reason nobody ever seems to be able to get rid of it.

The Inspector did amuse himself by imagining Boris panicking and dripping freely a salty fluid while stuck up there. If only…

For years, Britain (or rather, England) has been agonizing about its place in the world now that the Empire is history; you finally have a politician worthy of that position. Boris for Prime Minister.
