\’\’He was my knight on a shining bicycle.\’\’
Miss Armstrong admitted she did not agree with Mr Johnson\’s politics, and had voted for his rival Ken Livingstone in the Mayoral elections, but added: \’\’If you find yourself down a dark alleyway and in trouble I think Boris would be of more use than Ken.\’\’
So, there\’s the solution to all London\’s problems: stick the Mayor down a dark alley.
Slightly more seriously, it would be interesting to track down where this story came from. If from hte Mayor\’s press office then one might think less of him. If from sources absolutely not paid to polish the Mayor\’s armour (like, for example Miss Armstrong) one might think more highly of him: and if it was Miss Armstrong, more highly of her too.
