If you ever fancy coming along to Mayor's Question Time, I have a warning for you: be prepared to listen to plenty of them. Questions I mean.
Today's edition was full of them. We had questions on the financial crisis, on Trotskyism vs neo-liberal socialism and on the 'iron curtain' of Oxford Street buses.
Oh yes there was to be no shortage of questions, but the bigger question was as to whether we would hear any answers.
Lib Dem AM Mike Tuffrey was one of the first to give it a shot:
"There is something of the 'don't panic Mr. Mainwaring' about your remarks" he began in what has now become Assembly Members' customary approach to dealing with the Mayor."I have not heard a word from you on how London should respond to the financial crisis. You must come forward with some ideas of what to do.""I accept," replied Boris "the desire of Liberal Democrats to be gloomy, but I do not think we will get anywhere by talking like we are going to be slitting our wrists."
Labour Transport spokesperson Val Shawcross was one of the next to give it a go:
"How much is it going to cost to replace the bendy buses Boris?""I can't give you the answer to that.""This was a flagship manifesto commitment. Why do you not have any idea about how much it will cost to replace them?""I do not want to get into the costs. It will be much cheaper than the figures I have read.""Travelwatch say that it will cost an extra 12.4 million a year to replace them. That is an extra £60 million when you take into account other costs.""I do not agree with those figures."
Getting nowhere with the cost, she moved on to the safety record:
"What advice are you getting from officers at TfL? David Brown for one says they are 'no less safe than any other vehicle on the road'."
"I have every respect for David Brown, but as a cyclist I think they do pose an unacceptable risk."
"Is that not the advice you are getting?"
"That is not my view. I am the chair of TfL"
Pleased as he was with his new status, Caroline Pidgeon thought she would give it a test.
She asked Boris about the £40 million cut back at Camden station. Boris replied that he did not recognise the figures.
Asked for the second month running about the Olympic contract with Cubic he made it clear that he would have to pass:
"You are chair of TfL. You should be aware of this," said Pidgeon. Boris tried out a smirk.
"It sounds to me that you are really not on top of your transport brief" she carried on. "It should be a simple matter of yes or no."
Mayor Boris looked back at her, his feathers hardly ruffled. A simple yes or no, he must have thought. A simple yes or no?
