Who will Boris select as a deputy mayor?
The question is on everybody's lips so the Dame thought she would add an idea of her own into the melting pot.
People enter politics for a multiplicity of reasons-some laudable....others nefarious, self interested and self serving.
In our local political scene we have seen examples of both..... but we won't go into that now......
A name that keeps cropping up is Victoria Borwick.....
|A Force For Good|
People speak highly of Borwick: not only has she long experience in local politics, but is highly regarded and liked. Even her political opponents describe her as, "hardworking and intelligent"
And residents see her as someone to turn to in times of trouble. They say," Cllr Borwick will always go 'the extra mile'"
The only surprise is that her talents and contribution have never been fully utilised: no great surprise:honesty, intelligence and independence of thought are not qualities highly rated at K&C.
But Boris Johnson is rather different. He needs to have talent around if he is going to deliver on all his manifesto promises. Choosing Victoria Borwick as a deputy mayor will be seen as a smart and popular move.
