Boris Goes To The Fireworks - Providing London Fun For All!

The Lord Mayor's Fireworks in London should be fun, and all the more so with the possibility of a public address or switch-on by the inimitable Boris Johnson to look forward to. I wonder if he will be paying a special visit to the barber's for the esteemed occasion? The last time he attended some fireworks at the Olympic closing ceremony in China, eyebrows were raised by some commentators and 'bad hair day' suggestions were made by others! As outlined below, some have suggestions for a hirsute specatcle at the firework show.

Notwithstanding his inexplicable election to the high office of Lord Mayor Of London
- he cuts an eccentric figure. Perhaps this is the secret of his success - even with the young - for at the very least at least our Boris is never boring! He always seems to choose a weird angle and run with it - successfully - even London buses, his presence on one of which spiced up his appearance with David Cameron and made the thing watchable!

Will his fireworks at Bankside be real? Will they be a spectre of his and our imagination or perhaps a laser-light show, cleverly disguised in a cunning plan to fool the electorate? I think not! Londoners are too canny to fall for that!

But will he rise to the hair challenge, the gauntlet apparently thrown down by a Daily Telegraph columnist in August, ruminating on how London 2012 would match the Olympic flame and firework celebrations? According to BBC Northern Ireland, the columnist suggested that instead of a flame, Boris should be hoisted in the air above the crowds and let his hair flap in the breeze for the entire fortnight!

Now that I would so love to see - good old Boris, giving us all a few laughs and some fun, he would take it all in good spirit and his popularity might soar into the realms of running for leader of the opposition!

Thanks to for the great firework image - I tried to pick the one that looked most like Boris's hairdo - upside down! Click on the title to visit the site and see if you agree, or can see a better one!
