Dangling Boris

The Press Association, Thursday 2 August 2012
London Mayor Boris Johnson was left hanging as he got stuck in mid-air on a zipwire at an Olympic event. Mr Johnson tried out the 148ft (45m) high, 1,050ft (320m) long line as he visited Victoria Park in the capital. Wearing a hard hat and waving two Union flags, things seemed to go swimmingly at first. But as he reached the end of the line it rebounded before running out of momentum about 33ft (10m) above the ground. The mayor was left dangling inelegantly from his harness for about five minutes above a crowd of onlookers who happily snapped photographs on their mobile phone. One shouted: “I heard Ken Livingstone set up the zipline.”


About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
