And one day I’ll wake up from this nightmare

I’ve just got home from watching Have I Got News For You being recorded (very funny, it’s on at the weekend), and during the programme it struck me that when I last went – pretty much a year ago – some things in London were very different.

There was no financial crisis; Lehrman Brothers was still in business; Howard still had a job singing cheerful songs in Halifax adverts; you could drink alcohol on the tube; and….we had a Mayor of London that wasn’t Boris Johnson.

During the show, they used a clip of Boris’ speech from the post-handover party at the end of the Beijing Olympics, in which he referred to table tennis being invented as “Wiff Waff” on the dining tables of the British.

I sat there and wondered if at some point I’d wake up and realise that it was all a terrible dream and that Boris Johnson hadn’t actually been elected. But it’s real, and this is what the American people need to remember when they vote in a couple of weeks time – choose your politicians carefully. Enough said.

If you’ve not seen it, here’s the clip (taken from Irish station RTE, just for fun!):
