On yer bike, Boris



Letter to my first-born Jonathan:


One of the good things about you flying to Manhattan yesterday to begin a secondment with your employers is that you won’t be in London on May 3 to cast a vote for Boris Johnson. 


Just why anyone should vote for this fop is beyond me, and it’s a sign of the failing powers of fatherly persuasion that you did at the last election. 


Boris is pictured here in the £1,200 penguin uniform of the Bollinger club, a cricket and hunting club open only to very wealthy undergraduates at Oxford University, and specialising in the vandalism of hotels in which they held their dinners.

Sadly for Boris, his political weight appears to be on the wane. He currently trails Labour’s Ken Livingstone by 51 to 49 per cent, after enjoying a lead of eight per cent as recently as last November. 


There is the possibility of course that if Boris is beaten by Ken next week he will subsequently be championed to replace his second cousin David Cameron as leader of the Tory party. But after that I end with his own words…
 “I have as much chance of becoming Prime Minister as of being decapitated by a frisbee or of finding Elvis.”

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
