Guido thought it an inspired idea and posted a comment in reply:
Draft Boris, this is a tele-democracy, he is a performer. He will crucify Ken.
“How much influence do bloggers and the internet have in politics?” is a question Guido is often asked. My reply is that we only have influence over politicians, journalists and thus the climate of ideas. We don’t have any influence over the voting general public except through that opinion leading influence. Guido set out last July to encourage one political journalist to seize the moment, if Guido succeeded in that objective, his mission was accomplished.
Boris as mayor will also hopefully provide Guido with lots of fun material…
