It looked like the press might never turn up, but today's Guardian shows that even they have now noticed the phenomenon that is No-Show BoJo.
In a full page article, Matthew Taylor and Sam Jones pick up the trail of the increasingly elusive mayoral candidate and find that Boris Johnson's pull-out of tonight's hustings is just one of three similar no-shows in recent weeks.
The list includes Radio Four's Any Questions and an earlier 'Property Week' hustings where affordable housing was to be on the top of the agenda.
The article follows a public row between Team Boris and London's favourite entertainment and listings guide Time Out, who are sponsoring tonight's event. Team Boris had accused the magazine of lying about the pull-out which prompted this angry response from the editor.
So with only a few weeks until the election Boris is already causing disappointment, anger and disarray. Which forces the question: is he really going to get any better than this?
