London Mayor Boris Johnson brought unintended hilarity to our household yesterday when he declared that we had had the ‘right kind’ of snow, just the ‘wrong quantity.’
For the first time I can remember, ALL London buses had to be taken off the road. The ‘quantity’ of snow was around 6 inches. A significant snowfall, yes – but compared to many cities it was a source of much amusement that London should be brought to a standstill so easily.
Boris Johnson’s response smacked of complacency. We should have done much better.
