This article by Andrew Gilligan yesterday was hilarious. Gilligan says: “Perhaps inevitably at this stage, Boris is still groping to formulate his narrative. That leaves a gap that the anti-Boris forces are energetically trying to fill.”
Yup, that we are and will do. The thing is, this was preceeded by: “One of the most important things we learned from Ken was how desperately an effective opposition to the Mayor is needed. We’re not getting it at the moment.”
Errm… so are there any effective anti-Boris forces or not? Gilligan is talking about blogs who are watching him but he doesn’t want to mention them lest he acknowledge that in four years time his paper, which he admits isn’t providing any opposition to the Mayor, won’t hope to have the same impact on the election. The poor guy is flailing around because Boris Johnson is already flailing around and is now reduced to warning about “anti-Boris forces”. It’s a great spectacle to watch.
