    Say what you like about Bob Kiley but he did actually have a successful track record in running public transport. Can the same really be said about Charles Ronald George Nall-Cain, 3rd Baron Brocket? The only experience that parasitic aristocrat had in transport landed him in jail. This might lead some cynics to conclude that only reason he's advising Team Boris is because he's one of Johnson's old chums. :hmm:

    Anyone hear he's 'quietly' dropped the illegal immigrants amnesty idea?

    Agreed, anything else will be seen as sour grapes....

    ... although Brocket (if true..) is probably the exception that proves the rule...

    Telegraph report’s that he will be delivering a motivational speech to Team Boris within the next couple of weeks

    i.e. they have got him to make an after dinner speech which he is probably rather good at.
    not that there paying him a fantastic wage to sort out the tube:rolleyes:

    Do Team Boris really need motivation?? What could he possibly have to say that is relevant to the work required by the GLA?

    You could ask the same question as regarding relevance to the work of the GLA of Livingstone inviting the racist nutter Qaradawi to City Hall. I'd rather have someone like Brocket speaking than an antisemitic loon like Qaradawi.

    I know who I think does the most damage to London and it aint an aristocratic fraudster.

    No one has said that Johnson is (yet) paying Frord Crocket "a fantastic wage to sort out the tube" Mr rolleyes. Johnson has admitted however that he has discussed improving the transport system with the crook, listened to his advice, and has hired him to deliver a speech to his team.

    Do you really think that Brocket is being hired on the basis of his abilities rather than his personal connection to Johnson? Do you really think that an utter cretin like him should receive any public money at all?

    As for "give BoJo a chance" - no way, absolutely not. I still have my pride.

    What about the 'utter cretins' that Livingslime supported out of our money? People like Lee Jasper comes to mind. There were better ways to improve the lot of Black Londoners that didn't involve lining Lee Jaspers pockets.
    I'm for giving him a chance. He looks to be better than Livingstone anyway - so far. We shall see what the future brings.

    I can't understand why people are bashing Boris based purely on his political leanings when, after just a week or so, he hasn't had an opportunity to really do anything yet.

    Ken might have wanted 'the best' for London, but much of that was based around pandering to minorities. I hope that Boris stops focusing on the 'little' stuff and thinks of London as a whole. Sure, some people are going to be worse off in some aspects of their life, but surely that is better than everyone being worse off by some loony idea of Ken?

    If you blindly supported Livingscum then the badge of Fuckwit applies to you.

    Loads of people abandoned Livingstone not only becuase they ceased to agree with him but they just couldn't afford financially and socially his policies.

    Good post. Nicely balanced.

    I think Boris may well turn out to be a mayor for all the Londoners.

    Sorry KBJ, but that just makes Johnson sound like the re-incarnation of Princess Di. :D Maybe he's going to channel her.

    Apart from anything else, if you give him a chance and he f*cks up, you have something substantial to fight with in 2012.

    Remember the next election will either be fought during Cameron's honeymoon, or the mid term of what will surely be Labours last term (if they somehow squeak home in 2010). Either way I wouldn't take a Labour victory next time for granted....

    Johnson’s had plenty of chances. He was an arsehole when he a member of the Bullington Club (being an arsehole is an obligatory requirement for being part of that frat boy jerk circle), he was an arsehole when he edited the Spectator, he was an arsehole when he was a Tory MP and just because he hired an expensive Australian arsehole (who helped elect and re-elect the racist bastard arsehole John Howard) to train him to not outwardly project himself as such an arsehole it doesn’t mean he’s not still an arsehole -he is (an arsehole that is).

    On becoming Mayor, he’s surrounded himself with a courtier of arseholes and I’ve yet to meet a single supporter of his that isn’t an arsehole (I dated a Boris supporter briefly – she was an arsehole – a posh, stupid, double barrel named arsehole). There is now a heavy burden of proof on Johnson to establish that he’s no longer an arsehole. Stuffing an orange in his mouth and getting the old rope out might be one way to do this.

    Really? Do you have insider information; or, just a crystal ball?

    Neither. What makes you think a Labour victory in 2012 *can* be taken for granted?

    I don't.
