It's funny you know. You'd think black cab drivers and Boris Johnson would get on like aged co-dependents, clinging to each other in the hope that staying together means nothing will change. As mayor of London, Boris has always been willing to stick some relic of London's past on life support thanks to his romanticised view of the city's history, the kind only a rich toff could have. Just look at those fucking awful 'Boris buses' with no windows.
But Boris also likes the future. Things like tech, funny bikes and apps. Uber's success in the city is putting black cabs out of business, and Boris isn't stepping in to help them because he seems to favour the growth of these companies over the preservation of the iconic cars. So here's a cabbie calling him a cunt and Boris telling him to fuck off:
BoJo's focus on the past and love for the future is probably why he's so useless at dealing with actual issues that are happening right now. I'm sure he wishes he could dismiss the housing crisis in the same manner, but that might land him in a mire he can't bumble out.
