Lucky enough to have been invited to lunch at City Hall today. I was one of about ten from all quarters of London life. It was a fascinating and at times hilarious hour. I sat next to the Managing Director of Fortnums (perhaps not entirely a representative part of London but still) and heard how the riots got inside and helped themselves to Champagne and caviar. Boris was interested in the ex service charity scene and grasped their cooperative nature. There was general discussion on such subjects as the war in Afghanistan, employment law, youth employment and Boris Bykes (only 8 have been stolen and all have been recovered). This picture is a small mural in the Ebury Wine Bar. I gave Boris a copy not sure he was too impressed by the likeness!! Note the title of the book.
