London Mayor Johnson: ‘There’s a Guy Called Mitt Romney Who Wants to Know if We’re Ready’
If Mitt Romney’s overseas trip is supposed to be a charm offensive, he’s got it half right; he managed to offend everyone in Britain on his first day. Here’s London Mayor Boris Johnson taking a poke at Mitt in a speech to a huge audience at the lighting of the Olympic cauldron in Hyde Park.
People are coming from around the world and they’re seeing us, and they’re seeing the greatest city on Earth, aren’t they? Now, there are some people who are coming from around the world who don’t yet know about all the preparations we’ve done to get London ready in the last seven years. I hear there’s a guy, there’s a guy called Mitt Romney, who wants to know whether we’re ready … he wants to know whether we’re ready.
Are we ready?
