Boris Johnson - London's Bad Supply Teacher
Share This Article:
We’ve all been there; when the usual teacher is off sick there is always that one supply teacher who you hope is going to stroll through the classroom door about five minutes late. They’re usually funny, you might even get to watch a film but ultimately from a learning point of view they are completely useless. Unfortunately for Londoners, Boris Johnson is London’s bad supply teacher. Approaching every issue that he encounters with shocking naivety, he has blundered his way into a second term as London’s Mayor. This tight victory seemed more down to the fact that there were no other viable candidates. Ken Livingstone has already had his time as mayor, if Labour were to win this one they would have had to have put forward a fresh face. It didn’t help that Livingstone seemed to be campaigning purely on the cost of transport. Admittedly, the average London does worry about things such as the price of a bus journey, but issues such as the Olympics, issues with the MET and the recent riots may have given his campaign the gravitas it needed.
