BoJo on Blair

The name's Blair, Sir Ian Blair. London Mayor Boris Johnson didn't think much of this man, or his handling of his job whilst Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, some time before he became Mayor. And told him so in a startlingly-frank exchange of correspondence. Well done, Boris!

I called for Blair to be sacked as long ago as September 2005, then in January 2006 urged him to shut up, as it was becoming very clear he seemed to have a habit of speaking without first thinking, so I reacted with great pleasure last October when news that he had resigned emerged, helped on his way by the self-same Boris Johnson. I repeat: Well done, Boris!
