Has Boris Johnson turned serious at last?

By April 14, 2008Mayor, News

Has Boris Johnson turned serious at last? asks The Telegraph, in an article that neatly responds to our recent “Boring Boris” post. It’s an excellent piece, full of amusing anecdotes and witty repartee, both of which we’re currently missing from Boris.
It also contains an excellent quote from Andrew Gimson, who authored The Rise of Boris and seems to have taken over the Chief Boris Commenter title from Boriswatch recently. “Boris, ” he says, “has always been a man of indefatigable ambition, who pursues the glittering prizes with unfailing energy. He is one of the most competitive people I have ever met. He is serious about becoming mayor and if elected he will be serious about making a success of being mayor. We should not allow the plain fact that he is also serious about cracking jokes to distract us from these truths.”
