This is possibly the worst case of political village-itis I've ever seen.
The face of the Olympic Games of 1972 was Mark Spitz. In 1984 that honour went to Carl Lewis. In 2008 Usain Bolt. And the face of London 2012? That would be Boris Johnson.
All right, maybe Bradley Wiggins, Chris Hoy and Jessica Ennis will sneak ahead of the mayor at the finish line.
Yeah, maybe. What do you reckon? Where were you on that Great British occasion when Boris dangled from a rope? Was that the moment we all realised he was born to be prime minister?
