So should Boris have gone on Eastenders?
Overshadowed, at least in the eyes of political anoraks, by the Labour conference, the Sun’s ditching of Labour, and the daily tracking polls the big political story for many people tonight has been Boris’s cameo appearance on BBC1 Eastenders.
It will certainly raise his profile and, no doubt, will reinforce the “good old Boris” rhetoric that we saw in his election last year. But should a political figure do this?
I like the way Marf, of LondonSketchbook.com, has handled it.
