Boris Johnson, Mayor of London had a stroke of luck this week when he appeared in front of the House of Common’s Transport Select Committee to answer questions on the Capital’s ‘reaction’ to the intense snow fall which hit one Monday in February (I wrote about this here). The stroke of luck ? The G20 was in town so his lame and bizarre performance did not receive the coverage it could oh so easily have got.
I admit I am prejudiced. I’m used to seeing strong, empowered New York City Mayors take command of situations like severe snow storms early on – warning, managing, acting ! Instead it looks like Mayor Johnson was under the duvet.
I suspect that is the reason for his reaction to a few tough questions. Watch this, it’s priceless !
