Waking up on the 3rd of May 2008 wasn't pleasant for any Labour supporter.
In the face of many polls and everything heard on the doorstep, writing a day later I can still hardly believe that a man who calls Africans "picaninies" is the new Mayor of London.
On the campaign trail Boris made outlandish promises and announced huge uncosted plans.
Boris Watchers has been set up to scrutinise the man who has the"biggest personal mandate of any politician in the country."(BBC) Hopefully the blog can turn into a wiki-style project with London Labour activists and BoJo opponents having their say as the new Mayor puts his plans into action.
We sure can't trust the Evening Standard to keep an eye on him!

Our sister blog is written by Mark at http://www.boriswatch.blogspot.com/. While the page you are reading was created after, I get the feeling that our new Mayor is going to need as much watching as possible.
Our evil twin blog is at http://www.boriswatch.com/. It is avidly pro BoJo and so frankly I don't see much danger of material crossing over!
