Boris Johnson is not skilled in the art of tacking. 

Hacking down innocent, tiny children indiscriminately is not in the job description for Mayor of London, but that didn't stop Boris Johnson from doing just that today.

Cynically, he tried to get involved in a children's kickabout this afternoon, and his sheer desire to win at all costs overtook him as a wild, passionate fire filled his eyes, his pupils narrowed and he singled out a defenceless nine-year-old with the precision of a hawk. Johnson then proceeded to stick the boot in to try and take him down with a professional foul. Sickening...

We should have known he'd do this, given that he has previous when it comes to truly terrible, awful tackling in football. He must be a nightmare at five-a-side.
