We laughed out loud and slightly mocked when Nick Clegg was given a slot on LBC, where the general public to call in and “Ask Nick” anything (well, not quite anything).
But now, London’s Biggest Conversation (LBC) has decided to extend that gift of giving Politician’s extra work by letting rambling buffoon Boris Johnson host his own “Ask Boris” segment each Tuesday on Nick Ferrari’s morning show.
Bumbling Boris has also been given an extra 15 minutes than Clegg – most probably because he can’t just give a straight answer. But at least The Guardian were excited and ready to document any faux pas with their dedicated a live blog for the occasion reporting that “Uncharacteristically (and disappointingly) he managed to get through the encounter without the usual veiled digs at David Cameron. Cameron may even be cheered by the news that Johnson’s post-2016 ambitions are not entirely limited to Number 10.”
Thankfully The Guardian documented some of the best questions and THIS is our favourite…

Johnson says he plays with a wooden racket.
