4 April - Boris Johnson and the Fat Controller; together again - click any image for photo gallery (5 images)

The Fat Controller and Boris Johnson Boris Johnson and low-emission vansThanks to Civic Centre leaks, Bonkers was able to be at Erith railway station at 10 this morning to see Mayor Johnson’s photocall publicizing the extension of the London Low Emissions Zone regulations to small vans from January next year. It clearly wasn’t intended for public consumption as apart from Fat Controller O’Neill (FC) and Moneybags Tuckley there were only a few press photographers, some representatives from the motor trade and a couple of Boris’s aides present. Unlike Bexley’s fat cats, Boris didn’t see the need for police protection or hired bouncers. The aides asked everyone with a camera who they represented and when told, asked if there was anything they could do to help. Bexley council please note.

The FC, coincidence or not, had her back towards me nearly all the time and I shall spare you the photo of that view, but her young companion may be easier on the eye. See photo gallery.

If you are asking yourself what has this event got to do with Bexley you are not alone. I put the same question to one of Boris’s aides. She said “nothing”. One can only assume that it is because Boris “admires” Teresa and the fact she has agreed to bumble around London for him paid solely by Bexley’s taxpayers.m
