Everyone’s talked about this, so I’ll keep it brief.  EastEnders is not about London, it’s a fictional show about characters and situations.  It’s filmed in Elstree in Hertfordshire.  It’s nothing to do with the London arts scene, which (I was at a gig in Shoreditch, and can thus attest personally) was ticking along nicely on Thursday night without Boris’s personal attention.  Boris appeared on it solely for the PR boost of getting his fizzog on telly.  The shameless big media whore.

He was rubbish, too, wasn’t he?
