The Saturday Daily Mail front page just flashed up on BBC News as I sat here in bed catching up on this evening’s events (I do pick my moments to go out, don’t I?) on my trusty PDA*. The huge headline reads:

BORIS: THE WHEELS ARE FALLING OFF ALREADY!

Mm, but remind me, which Middle England rag was aboard the Boris bandwagon a couple of months ago, when most people hadn’t noticed any fixtures missing from its its wheels?

Nice to see them leaping overboard and onto the good ship Boris Watch, anyway.

Update: You can now see the Mail’s front page and other newspaper clippings here.

* My PDA has had so much use since March keeping tabs on Boris that its on-screen keyboard now suggests ‘Boris’ as the most likely word I could possibly be aiming for as soon as I get as far as ‘bo’ :)

    The blonde man certainly keeps us busy.

    As I’ve said elsewhere perhaps it’s time the bookies started giving us odds on the next Bojo aid to resign…

    Incidentally, and I do hate to be so crass as to give a link to my own blog, is it just me or is this unusually blunt in its racism:

    I did a double-take at the newsagents this morning when I saw that headline. What’s Dacre up to with this line?

  5. Believe it or not, Dacre’s good friends with Gordon Brown. (Actually, given the shift rightwards of the actual Gordon Brown compared with the legendary lefty Gordon Brown we all heard about before he became PM, perhaps that’s not so hard to believe.) While the Mail would never commit commercial suicide by switching allegiances, it can attack the Tories whenever they deserve it due to scandal, spin, and other issues which resonate with its readers. So I guess this is one of those occasions.

    The Standard on the other hand has virtually no time for anyone who’s not a Tory, and of course Gilligan promoted the image of Ken’s administration as corrupt and crony-based, and Boris as a breath of fresh air, so I’d love to know how he’ll be covering Lewis’s already-proven lies (and unproven allegations which are in many ways far worse than those equally unproven ones levelled at Lee Jasper). Such a shame they don’t publish at weekends.

  6. You really make it appear really easy with your presentation however I to find this matter to be really something which I feel I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complex and very large for me. I’m taking a look ahead on your next post, I will try to get the dangle of it!
