    There are suggestions that he was voted in because hes a 'lovable' buffoon. Id say he was delivering on expectations.

    I asked the same questions around the office and the answers were the same. It appears that there's a huge difference between hearing them and seeing them written down.

    I don't care whether Boris knows the colour of a bear, so long as he's doing a good job in what he's supposed to do.

    This is just another politician attack by the awful LBC. It was the same when Cameron didn't know the price of a loaf. Neither do I, big deal.

    Would you rather have Boris or Ken? That's what the vote really came down to.

    Who cares if he is Stephen Hawking or Joey Essex!? Is he getting the job done? Is he delivering results?

    The questioner says after the first question. (paraphrased) 'because the bear is in the south pole' when it should be the North Pole. So he's not much better.

    "A man builds a house with four sides of rectangular construction each side with southern exposure"

    Surely that breaks the laws of physics?

    If one side is facing south, the opposite side isn't.

    If the centre of the house is directly at the north pole then all exterior walls face south. Which is why the bear is white, it's at the north pole.

    Tbh I am pretty concerned he didnt have a clue about the pricing of the underground (1:50) or how to work out the costs.

    Geographic north or magnetic north?

    Because, they're different places. [I'm assuming they meant geographic north because they didn't do proper research and just wanted to make someone look bad.]

    Our site manager came in asking random questions from a paper today. Things such as "you have a single match left in a matchbox. You enter a room and inside it is dark. There is a gas lamp, a candle and an gas fire. Which do you light first?"

    Thing is, for questions like that it takes a certain type of thinking to get it quickly. Given a bit longer most people will get the answer. Is immediacy *that* important?

    Just like people have different learning styles, they have different thinking styles too.

    Either I guess, If you're at Magnetic North all walls point magnetic south. If you're at geographic north all walls point geographic south.*

    * I don't know if this is true or not I'm just presuming that south is directly opposite north.
