Boris Johnson goes missing again from City Hall

Has anyone seen the Mayor? I'm only asking because he's just missed his second meeting of the City Hall Standards Committee.

Under discussion is the question of who should make sure he hasn't employed any congenital liars, and how to avoid staff suing each other. So nothing that important really.

Of course Boris Johnson has a reputation for making no-shows. During the campaign he pulled out of a number of scheduled events and as a member of parliament he missed 55% of all votes in the House.

But with his new leaf turned over in London town I had hoped that he would put in the hours.

And with the Standards Committee being the only Assembly committee that he has any statutory commitment to attend, it is pretty disappointing that he has so far missed every single meeting.


Do you work in City Hall? Have you spotted Boris hanging around? Has anyone seen him hiding in his office? Has someone spotted him skulking off to the Travel Agents? If so, the Troll would really like to hear from you.

Haven't they got him wearing a silly hat or touring a temple or something today? Anything to keep him out of the way I guess.

# Oh dear, what can the matter be? Boris Johnson locked in the lavatory #

Maybe he has made an unannounced apology tour of Skegness and Bognor Regis.

"Oh dear dreadfully sorry chaps. Got slightly carried away. Cripes what are you going to do with that bucket and spade?"

Thanks Pastyface. They all seem to be passworded, which is a shame. From what I can see though Boris looks suitably out of place.

pastyface said...

yes you need a logon to get in.

I assume somebody has finally told him to take his hands out of his pockets when he's being photographed.

There are only a select number of places where he doesn't look out of place.

err shouldn't he be doing his job rather than pissing about doing photo shoots?

Helen said...

Was he wearing his stab-proof vest?

Maybe his forensic team could have a search with their magnifying glasses?
