Boris left hanging in London: Stuck on a zip wire

Boris Johnson was left hanging today when he got stuck halfway down a zip wire at an event in Victoria Park.

The Mayor of London had to be pulled the rest of the way by teams on the ground at around 13:30 this afternoon.

Boris Johnson was heard shouting "Get me a rope, get me a ladder" after he was the first person to use the zip wire. He continued "I think the brakes got stuck".

Video at the link. Too heavy? Set up incorrectly?

1. Too bad they didn't let rMoney try it first--then he'd have something to cry about...

but the pictures would have been SO WORTH IT nonetheless.

I'd guess. Must confess it does look funny.

6. First time I wished I'd been in London for many a long year LOL

Pity they didn't leave him there, though.

7. Future Tory leader to be selected by participation in BBC TV’s Total Wipeout

In the wake of London Mayor Boris Johnson’s popularity boost amongst the voting public, following his 2 flags and a zip wire stunt at the 2012 Olympics, members of the Conservative party’s influential 1922 committee have agreed that in future the party leader will be selected through participation in an adapted version of the popular BBC TV show “Total Wipeout”.

Concerns that the general oiliness of potential leadership candidates, in particular George Osborne, Michael Gove and Jeremy Hunt, would be an unfair handicap in tackling some the already slippery obstacles on the course were met with some derision by 1922 Committee Chairman Graham Brady who, setting aside his copy of 50 Shades of Grey, commented ” Well Boris has probably already got it in the bag anyway, but anything that gets Theresa May into a leopard skin bikini and kitten heels sliding her silken womanly thighs around on a turgid inflatable pole greasier than the one she clings to in the home office gets my vote!”
