Silly Season romps ahead #497
Wacky races? For a brief time London had the prospect of Lembit vs Boris vs Ken
So says a special little box on BBC News Online. In fact there is a photo of Lembit, and then another box with another similar story with another photo of Lembit.
In fact, I have calculated that Lembit is taking up 16.8% of the space of the BBC News Online politics page (top bit as shown on the average-sized monitor - see screenshot above).
This is all because someone's room mate casually suggested when questioned that their room mate might make a good Mayor. Then a couple hours later the bloke mentioned said he wasn't running for Mayor.
And this justifies 16.8% of the BBC Politics page.
Is it August, by any chance?
