Boris Johnson was just interviewed on Radio 4, talking about the impact so much snow is having on London, and the living Beano character himself came up with a couple of classics;
"This isn't the kind of snow we've seen in London for decades, *pause*, although I guess all snow is the same really"
The man just moves his jaw up and down expending useless energy, like with this gem;
"London might lose some money today with people not driving in and paying the congestion charge, *pause* although I guess most people pay in advance so it won't make any difference."
I'm not particularly, anti-Boris, but it really is like having a PG Wodehouse character as Mayor of London! I may have got the exact wording wrong as the man was on the radio just a matter of minutes ago, and I was busy eating scrambled eggs on toast, but you get the idea!
