Poor Boris. This has been a busy week for his detractors, what with the particularly unflattering documentary about his policies and the criticism about how he dealt with the snow earlier this year. Now, with the Mail deciding that it’s the right time to run a full (and not entirely unbiased) look at the Darius Guppy Phonecall, it seems like the week isn’t going to be improving for Boris any time soon.
Now, we could take the opportunity to shore up on Boris’s side here. We could write about him defending the skyline of the city by voicing his discontent over a planned skyscraper that the Government want to place on the South Bank. Similarly, we could look at Boris’s catchy new ‘Only in London’ tourism campain that’s hit the headlines this week. Frankly, though, we’re terrified of angering whatever gods have decided to smite Boris this week — a week this bad must have some kind of supernatural cause — and so here’s a picture of a cute kitten instead.
Hopefully this sacrifice will appease whatever higher being has decided Boris deserves such a bad run of it recently, and things can get back to normal. Hopefully.
