Boris and Becks

Boris and Becks

Boris Johnson was only too happy to open the gates of London for those escaping the “tyranny” of Monsieur Hollande’s tax regime.

So was the Mayor silenced now one of London’s greatest exports and Olympic heroes has gone offshore to Paris? No, he used it to plug London’s tourism of course.

After opening the Shard’s viewing platform, Boris, who knows a thing or two about football talent (see below), gave Sky News his take on David Beckham’s move to PSG.

“He’s off to Paris Saint Germain – all I would say to all his disconsolate fans: don’t worry folks, come up the Shard and you can probably see him in Paris anyway.”
