Hats Off To The Buskers

By March 10, 2010News

Some days, I imagine that Bozza’s life is just, well, a bit weird.

Take yesterday, for example. It began with him launching a competition whereby musicians or singers aged 16-25 can compete for the coveted prize of a year’s licence to busk on London Underground. It’s a great scheme, and last year’s winner James West is about to release his first record.

Boris (rather improbably) said, “As The View so purposely said on their album Hats off to the Buskers – it is high time we recognised how marvellous our buskers truly are. I’m searching for the finest act to join the myriad of talented musicians on the Underground.”

(Really? Do you think Boris is a huge fan of The View? Perhaps he has had the same jeans on, for four days now).

Then, after launching this competition and quoting album titles of popular beat combos, he met with HRH the Duchess of Cornwall. According to Bozza’s Twitter, HRH has ‘taken a keen interest in our Violence Against Women Strategy’, don’t you know.

Buskers and Bowles on the same day, eh?  Just another 24 hours in the life of the Mayor of London…

(Apologies for the quality of the picture, it’s taken directly from BoJo’s Twitter site).
