O Rare Boris Johnson, Bad Boy Mayor of London.
And King of Southern England. While his less flamboyant Eton and Oxford schoolmate Prime Minister David Cameron finishes his 3-day tour of India, London Mayor Boris Johnson revels in London's growing role as the country's chief economic engine, while England's once-strong northern regions have fallen behind. Johnson, everyone agrees, is a major piece of ruling class work who only occasionally trips over his patrician roots. A man of the people--but then not--he makes news every day. He has been an activist mayor, popular with Londoners of all classes. Expect to see him as PM some day. See "Women shouldn't settle for old Etonians running the country" in The Telegraph and "Boris Backing London's Tech is a Great Start" in the UK edition of The Huffington Post.
