During his latest #AskBoris Twitter session the London Mayor reacted to a question in very Boris-like fashion


Mayor of London Boris Johnson today conducted his regular #AskBoris Q&A session on Twitter. As always, it was a chance for Londoners to ask burning questions about local issues.

As with any responsive social media event, some people will use the opportunity to send less savoury wishes to the Tory MP.

However, Twitter user Christopher John was quick off the mark with an amusing tweet referring back to the Mayor’s run-in with a commuter on the newly opened cycle superhighway last week.

Witty as ever in his response and never one to shy away from the chance for some comedic buffoonery, Boris gladly replied.

The section of road Johsnon was riding on was the segregated cycle path on Vauxhall Bridge. This forms part of the new CS5, a route that now allows riders to go from Oval to Pimlico without competing for space with motor traffic.

The present mayor is also the Tory MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, and so there will be a new leader in City Hall from next year. With this change in leadership imminent, cycle campaigners have already been scoping out which candidate will do the most to continue the aim to make London a cycling city.

    Glad to see you base your political leanings on someone being a ‘great guy’. Fills me with so much hope for the future of our country.

  • Vance Harvey

    obviously takes one to know one!
    I’ll definitely vote for Boris for PM – great guy – not fazed by prats who make stupid comments to him!

  • dougles

    It’s Boris. I’m sure he’s had, and deserves, worse.

  • Walter Crunch

    I am not sticking up for anyone. It’s a dirt bag move.

    Last time I saw him walking down the street in Elephant I took great pride in calling him a wanker to his face. One of my favourite memories, that.

    Anyone trying to improve and save lives of cyclists deserves not to be disrespected by a fellow cyclist.

  • Stevo

    You are easily impressed. Anyway, it’s his job.

  • Bob

    I thought it was mandatory to do this to the wannabe PM

  • Nic Lowe

    Love him or hate him, Boris can turn anything into a triumph.

  • dougles

    Are you seriously sticking up for Boris? Not sure what it is about him that makes you think he deserves any better.

  • maddog

    maybe the rider in red doesn’t like the suit’s politics… meh.

  • Walter Crunch

    What a dirt bag move on the part of the cyclist.
