Jovial Johnson

Friday 2nd May heralded Boris Johnson's election as Mayor of London.  Many have been uncertain as to whether he can do the job well, and of course we are yet to see, but I think it's a good day for politics.  The time has come for someone who can carry out a political post with quick wit and a light heart;  politicians wield a power that can depress or sadden us in a fleeting moment, at last we might have someone to cheer us up instead.  Hurrah to Boris and the Tories' turning tide against dull, depressing Brown.
