Yes, Boris that is your legacy
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson is a “yes man”. That is his legacy, which is perhaps ironic considering the contrary tone he’s setting on the national stage.
He said “yes” to a number of things that perhaps would have been better addressed with a “no”, a “maybe” or, perhaps, a “let’s think about this for a moment”.
He has argued in the past that the forest of cranes are a direct result of him embracing development, arguing that a small percentage of something (namely affordable housing) is better than 35% of nothing. But his “yes” momentum has tripped him up. It has caused woe over Enderby Wharf and Bishopsgate and it has created Hong Kong on South Quay.
For all his brash derring-do, Boris has left a city as unruly as his hair.
