Borris Johnson presents new Outlanders

When he’s not stuck on zipline, rugby tackling footballers or shouldering small Japanese school children in the face, old Boris is a bit of a petrol head.

Apparently. You may have assumed that after his actions earlier this week, the Mayor of London might not be too popular with the Japanese, however Mitsubishi have elected Boris to launch the new Mitsubishi Outlander range at their global headquarters in Tokyo. I don’t know why but I always saw Borris as more of a Fiat Seicento kind of guy. It isn’t completely random that Borris Johnson would be doing this kind of thing as he is well known for his encouragement of ultra low emission vehicles in London. They even let Borris behind the wheel to give it a little test drive, Mitsubishi must not be aware of his clumsy past.
