Given her Majesty's family history of inbreeding then I'm sure she has seen far worse fizzogs

Fergie?

Fergie is lookin' good these days ...

her "Weight-Watchers" programme is apparently miraculous  :) ...

"Fat-Fighters" is the militant wing of "Weight-Watchers" in the UK ...

I suspect you got the wrong "Fergie"

Yet, the real former Duchess of York isn't a shabby bird, either.

The election of Boris as Mayor reminded me of Saturnalia, when the jester is made king for a day.

Unfortunately Boris's reign will be much longer.

They only have Boris on HIGNFY because they need a blond bimbo and he is all they can afford.

What about Kirsty Young ?. No, I take it back she's no bimbo, nor is she really blonde  [:0].

BTW Channel 5 TV have cloned Kirsty ...http://tvnewsroom.co.uk/blog/isla-joins-five/

 Yes, but sometinmes the jester's sugestions were worth taking seriously.

Boris has already started an investigation into London's finances under Livingstone. Oh dear... things are amiss. It seems corruption and slush may have been the order of the day. The police are investigating 5 cases of misuse of funds.

GOOD FOR HIM!

Accountability in any sector of the society is almost totally lacking.

Lets' face it, Boris isn't looking into the finances because he cares that public money may have been misspent. He's just trying to discredit Livingstone.
In due course Boris will be replaced and the new guy will look through the accounts for irregularities. It's not as if either political party has the monopoly on greed.

Ofcourse, but the one good thing that Boris has done is the banning of alcohol on public transport. This has been needed for a long time, and not just in London.

Has he done that because when he ships the poor out west, on the bendy buses, he doesn't want them all turning up in wales drunk?

Actually I don't think we need a ban on drinking alcohol on public transport. We need a ban on being an antisocial tosser.
Sadly this is beyond Boris's power.

"I just don't think this plan of yours will work, Boris"

"What? they might not get on the bus you mean. Oh, I know, we'll tempt them on with 5.00 Notes and lines of coke. Here take this"

"What is it?"

"It's 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' the film, go study the child catcher, and tomorrow met up and compare notes. You can go now"

Then Boris is a cyclist so that is one reason that he wants to get rid of the Bendy buses. Also yes I think that Ken Livingstone was a bit corrupt. After all he got away with loads, nope I can't remember it all.

Banning bendy buses, Banning drinking on public transport. These are just non-issues, some may say that they are popularist, Maybe, I just don't really see that either.

Making better cycle lanes is a far better answer to the first problem, an answer, which would also promote more cycle use; An answer which will not waste more tax payers money to buy different buses to replace the bendy ones.
 
And as far as drinking on public transport, I can't remember a time I was in London on public transport and saw someone drinking- but then maybe, I was just too drunk to notice :D.

THE KEN IS DEAD, LONG LIVE THE KEN. :)
