In time for tomorrow’s election, a few highlights of Boris Johnson’s career might be in order:

  • Getting fired from the Times for falsifying a quotation.
  • Writing that “If gay marriage was OK – and I was uncertain on the issue – then I saw no reason in principle why a union should not be consecrated between three men, as well as two men; or indeed three men and a dog.”
  • As Editor of the Spectator, publishing this.
  • Oh, and writing this (“tribal warriors will all break out in watermelon smiles to see the big white chief touch down in his big white British taxpayer-funded bird”).

Other candidates are available. Several – although, of course, not all – are, in my opinion, preferable. It’ll be rather depressing if Londoners choose to elect a major based largely on choosing the candidate who has spent the most time on television.
