Forget LiLo, Boris Johnson is BoJo

I've just noticed that the Daily Mirror occasionally refers to London mayor Boris Johnson (pictured) as BoJo, in much the same way as some other publications refer to Lindsay Lohan as LiLo.

BoJo - just brilliant. It reminds me of Bozo the Clown, with added connotations of 'bodge'. Some would say that's very appropriate...


I've written about Boris Johnson on this blog before.

We have a manager in our office called Lionel Lopez, who's been called LiLo behind his back for years... because he's self-inflated.

Very nice... I've been through the names of all my colleagues and have found one JoBo, one TiNo, and - er - one DoPe. Not that I would ever mock my colleagues: they are all fine, upstanding journalists (who may happen to read this blog).

I have once or twice unfortunatley been called J-Ho... not the best nickname
