Boris Johnson, the Conservative Party candidate in the London Mayoral Election on May 1st, made a surprise visit to St John's Wood yesterday afternoon. After alighting from the Boris Bus he made a bee-line towards the gathering crowds outside a well-known tea room/restauarant. After shaking hands with a few hardy souls, including mine, he started making a speech "on-the-hoof".
In broad terms, I think he held the audiences attention, seemed to have good eye contact and re-emphasised a couple of points in his short speech of around five minutes and all without much "Ken bashing" too.
Yes, that's me at the back on the right, checking a text message!
