Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson to be Mayor of London

Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, who once described himself, quite flatteringly, as a buffoon, appears to have been elected Mayor of London, displacing the competent but unpleasant Ken Livingsone.

I never even thought he was that funny on the radio.

I predict that Londoners will regret this, although not as much as we regret Bush — but only because the Mayor of London doesn't have as much power as even the Mayor of New York.

    Boris may be a buffoon, but at least he’s not a communist one.

    Bloody good news! Praise the Lord! Thank God!
    There is hope for Londonistan. What will Red Ken do next?


    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    elect a communist

    someone who will work full-time
    to destroy your country

    Ken had some strange political philosophy, said bad stuff, and seems to be a nasty nasty man. But despite his many flaws he was a very effective Mayor for London.

    There’s an amusing, and surprisingly unremarked upon, irony in this story: Ken Livingstone likes salamanders. Boris Johnson resembles a salamander.
