I like Boris, I really do. I think he is witty and entertaining, has a wicked sense of humour and a compelling debating style. Indeed, if only he could find his Ernie Wise then his shows would be all the better.
London needs a mayor though, not a celebrity variety act - which is why so little has actually been achieved during the past 4-years, except for entertainment and bank balances of the favoured few.
On housing though Ken remains held back by the Labour Party he trails, as their lack of policy and credibility really gives people nothing to vote for.
Hence, at least Boris gives London a laugh!
What the electorate have failed to ask though is: at who's expense?
