On Boris becoming mayor

Oh, sweet irony!

Thursday's Guardian contained the most nauseating vile attack on Boris to try to scare people into sticking with the corrupt, dictator-appeasing Ken: see it here.

In particular, Arabella Weir "actor and writer" became very serious about the prospect of him winning, saying
"I will go on hunger strike and throw myself in front of the next horse at Ascot if he wins. Failing that I was going to say I'll sleep with him, but he'd probably say yes. So instead I'll chain myself to the railings of his house. And then I'll move out of London. How do we trust a guy who says he knows about London, when he's just taken three of his kids out of state school and put them into private schools? That's a man in touch with the people. He's loathsome. He's everything that's wrong with the upper classes at their worst. Limited, pompous, without any breadth of vision or sense of inclusion. But I don't even think he thinks he's up to the job. He said it for a laugh, is my guess, and now he's got to go through with it"

Roll on Ascot - if she can survive without eating that long!
