London Mayor Boris Johnson

A morning with London’s ever entertaining Mayor, Boris Johnson, for Square Mile Magazine on a visit to Smithfield’s meat market in East London. He initially received quite a mixed reaction from the workers there, most unhappy at having to pay Congestion Charge to get home in the mornings after working all night, but his slightly ‘bumbling’ style won most over – and you have to hand it to him, he does cycle everywhere, complete with Sellotaped helmet, something I can’t imagine his New York equivalent doing. Positioning of B.J. Meats sign a bit of a godsend, and did his arch-nemesis Ken Livingstone leave something behind?
