EastEnders Appearance A Great Achievement For Boris

Has ConservativeHome been hacked by someone with an absurdist sense of humour? That's the only explanation we can think of for the list of Boris's 100 Achievements As Mayor. Alongside some tangible developments - whatever your views on their effects - (freezing council tax, scrapping the Londoner, opening up shop loos, the bendy vendetta) are some items that we're quoting verbatim and generously describing as 'random':

- Flew to Beijing Olympics, economy class

- Brought back Christmas - hosting various carol concerts, etc

- The Queen's portrait unveiled in City Hall

- Classical music, neglected under the previous regime as elitist, is now getting encouragement

- Boris Johnson appeared in EastEnders visiting the Queen Vic

Are these really the best ConservativeHome could come up with? Does an attempt to be anti-politically correct about Christmas (and we can't say we'd thought it had gone AWOL) trump banning drinking on public transport as something Boris has 'done'? Take a look at the full list and let us (or them) know what you think...
