Boris Johnson is a clown who happens to run a major world city. We like Mr Johnson as Mayor of London (those of us who do) because his power is limited. If London had its own defence budget we might be more wary. The best way to expose Mr Johnson’s credentials would be to devolve more power. Then the electorate would react the way that most children do when they see a clown. It’s not funny. It’s scary.

Unimpressed with the Mayor’s zip line antics earlier this week, Times columnist Philip Collins throws a bucket of cold water at those who think Boris Johnson is prime minister material
