I am an expat of 30 years, never voted, in those years on the outside looking in, never seen much worth voting for. Boris has given expats like me something to cheer about. When I get back to Blighty I shall be voting for Boris, he seems to have something that sets him aside from the average politician, something that we can all subscribe to, charismatic. Carry on Boris, you are are an icon. No doubt on his way to No.10.

Johnson was seen at a swimming event with the dictator of UK politics and disgraced media magnate Rupert Murdoch. Having interferred in UK politics for so long, and causing so much upheaval and grief through his publications, one would suspect that this past his use by date 81 year old should just enjoy his retirement. But no, he and his wife being a power hungry couple, seem hell-bent on causing yet more political upheaval.
Johnson has his idiocyncracies and should keep them within the confines of the London mayoralty. He should not under any circumstance be influenced by Murdoch and his ilk. Having witnessed the decline in Cameron's popularity and credibility due the close association with the press, led by the Murdoch empire in particular, Johnson needs to be seen to distance himself from national politics and be happy to live in the glory of having overseen a successful Olympic Games in his city.

@Jack - both the UK and NZ populations had to endure appalling socialist governments that caused enduring financial problems. In the case of the UK the Labour government was criminal in its actions. Fortunately some of us have a memory, and realise that it takes several years to fix these colossal mismanagements.

U.K's ability for self-inflicted abuse is remarkable. They, like NZ, voted for a conservative government, which shows their similar inability to distinguish between the frying pan and the fire. How about John Banks for PM?! Is there no end to this buffoonery.....?
