But for those of us living in Scotland Boris is a menace:
"Domestic flights in this country are a crime, they are a sin. You will not find, under a Johnson mayoralty, 381 officials taking flights within this country. That's absolutely criminal" - BorisSo, if Boris gets his way, we can say goodbye to Edinburgh's financial sector. It depends on all those "criminal" domestic flights. The idea that the Scottish business community could rely on the existing train service is a joke.
Don't get me wrong - I prefer to travel by train. But the current service isn't good enough. Scotland needs those flights.
There is an alternative of course.
Move the UK capital to Scotland and we wouldn't need to fly up and down.
Stop crime. End sin. Boris for Lord Provost!
