    It cost 10,000 to stand for the Mayoral Election. If he got elected, I doubt he would last 5 minutes in the City Hall meeting with experienced board members.

    From what I've seen in interviews he's certainly an intelligent man, he's just very in your face and unpredictable. It would certainly be interesting, but that's for Londoners to decide, I only go there about once a year.
