Boris came to Bexley police station to make good on his promise to decentralize his press conferences. What was really impressive was that the media followed.
Boris gave details of the safer transport hubs and the roll out of the extra police for the transport network. He then took questions on Ian Blair, crime stats, Ian Blair, police funding, Ian Blair and Ian Blair.
Someone from the Today Program then asked why he was unwilling to talk about Ian Blair. You couldn’t make it up.
Boris and the team then went off to the new leisure centre in Sidcup. Despite numerous requests Boris refused to put on his speedos and christen the pool. Shame, I say. What is he trying to hide? Londoners deserve to know!
