are the British totally daft? i just read that when the new lord mayor of London banned alcohol on the tube, half of London goes on a drunken binge in the underground, terrorizing passengers, forming a conga-line and chanting while "conga-ing" "brian is a [:I], oh, brian is a [:I], oh .... (brian is the new lord mayor)
or are all the British just barking mad?
Other quotes by Boris JohnsonOn his hopes of leading the country: "My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive." On Tony Blair: "It is just flipping unbelievable. He is a mixture of Harry Houdini and a greased piglet. He is barely human in his elusiveness. Nailing Blair is like trying to pin jelly to a wall." On his rivals in the Liberal Democrats: "The Lib Dems are not just empty. They are a void within a vacuum surrounded by a vast inanition."During the campaign trail of the 2005 general election: "Whatís my view on drugs? Iíve forgotten my view on drugs." On George Bush: "The President is a cross-eyed Texan warmonger, unelected, inarticulate, who epitomises the arrogance of American foreign policy." On The 2005 Conservative Leadership Contest: "I am supporting David Cameron purely out of cynical self-interest." "Voting Tory will cause your wife to have bigger breasts and increase your chances of owning a BMW M3."
Sorry Jim, I don't understand the problem. Lots of people had a good time and a few people got hurt- largely emotionally rather than physically. Just the same as any Saturday night (but with a better excuse).I sometimes wonder why America gave up on prohibition- they don't seem to understand how to drink alcohol.
besides, there are also the "traditional" English sports, such as rolling down the hill after a round of cheese, shin kicking, mountain biking through a Kent swamp AND - OH, RIDING TO THE HOUNDS

Yet, the real former Duchess of York isn't a shabby bird, either.
Sarah commented in 2003, "I love the fact that [Americans] embrace me".
All vote Boris, he is such a card,
They only have Boris on HIGNFY because they need a blond bimbo and he is all they can afford.
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.

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.
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.
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.
