Hanging in the Balance

Post  fennywest on Fri 03 Aug 2012, 10:25 pm





Mr Johnson was featuring as a “special guest” in Victoria Park, London, to ride the 1,050ft (320m) zip line, donning a hard hat and two Union flags as he attempted to sail down.


Instead, he ground steadily to a halt on the wire about 65ft (20m) from the end as the wire sagged, and was left dangling inelegantly in front of a watching crowd.


The Mayor spent around five minutes hanging comically from the drooping line wearing a hard hat, as spectators took video footage and photographs of his misfortune.


When one asked how he was feeling, he replied “very, very well thank you”, before shouting: "Get me a rope, get me a ladder" to bystanders.


“It’s very, very well organised,” he assured them. “It’s going well so far. Right.”

Using your misfortunes to your advantage
With his popularity rate rising higher and higher, this seem a perfect image to prove the point beyond dispute. Mayor Boris has a way with using his misfortunes to his advantage. This picture even makes him more popular. In a recent poll, a Boris Bounce is already predicted if he stands for election as a Tory leader.


When a mayor hangs in the balance
It tells you, anything can happen
So you can’t live anything to chance
Let your motto be; ‘Ever Ready’




When you are testing and you’re tested
It can be very, very frightening
But the dangling Mayor joked about it
Tell me, how would you feel about it?
