Hi. I am Boris Johns-hen and I am going to be following the Conservative Mayor of London Boris Johnson around over the next few months.
Over the last year he has consistently refused to debate with any of his opponents or defend his own policies. Labour candidate Ken Livingstone even wrote to him and went to City Hall personally to deliver the letter challenging him to a television debate. Boris Johnson refuses.
Below is a list of debates that Tory Boris Johnson has chickened out of:
UK Feminista 12th November 2011. Ken Livingstone and Brian Paddick spoke at this event but Boris Johnson refused to attend
Federation of Small Business 8th December 2011. Ken Livingstone, Jenny Jones and Brian Paddick spoke at this event but Boris Johnson refused to attend
Below is a list of debates that Ken Livingstone has agreed to attend if Boris Johnson will attend. Boris Johnson has either refused or not replied:
Institute of Citizenship, Institute of Directors, London Wildlife Trust, Imperial College Union, ULU, National Housing Federation, Croydon Chamber of Commerce and South London Business, Inclusion London, UpRise, Leonard Cheshire Disability, Bloomberg
