London's Mayor Gets Stuck On Zip Line!

London's mayor, Boris Johnson, decided to pull a little stunt as part of an Olympic celebration.

He was supposed to zip line above Victoria Park while waving two union jack flags.

He did zip line for a while until he eventually lost his momentum and came to a complete stop, dangling above the crowd.

He took the whole incident surprisingly well.

Check out the video (above) to watch the mayor of London get stuck on a zip line. LOLz!

Arnold Schwarznegger Bikes In London With City's Mayor

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mayor Boris Johnson

Aww! How cute. Ha!

Arnold Schwarzenegger posed with the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson on Wednesday to promote Barclay's Cycle Hire Scheme held at The Queen's Walk in London, England.

What's the Barclay's Cycle Hire, you ask?

It is a public bicycle sharing scheme that was launched in 2010 designed to be used for public transportation with a scheme stretching 17 square miles around Central London.

Much like riding the bus, users must pay a usage fee to ride one of the 5,000 "Boris bikes" available on the track.

Riders rent bikes from one of the 315 docks located along the route, with the first thirty minutes free.

We definitely think this is an inneresting idea that can cut down on gas, promote a healthy lifestyle, AND helps cut down fuel emissions for the environment.

With over one million bicycle trips made within the first ten weeks of the launch, the scheme is being expanded into east London.

Could this replace gas powered local transportation one day? Only time will tell!

Check out more pics of London's mayor and Arnie buddying up on bikes below!

Who better to endorse a bicycle sharing scheme than our very own unofficial mascot for bike riding?

Okay, maybe Lance Armstrong.

London Mayor Wants Harry Potter Theme Park in London!

Filed under: Anglophilia

Makes sense, but Warner Bros. is snubbing him!

London mayor Boris Johnson made a plea to Warner Bros. to site the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in London rather than in Florida, which they ignored.

Johnson even urged the public to write to Warner Bros. to petition for a second theme park in the city.

He thinks it would be "utterly mad" to leave it to Americans "to make money from a great British invention." He continues:

“I appeal to the children of this country and to their Potter-fiend parents to write to Warner Bros and Universal, and perhaps, even, to the great JK [Rowling] herself."

But Warner Bros. probably won't be interested because of the hassle it would be to build a theme park in London.

But never say never!

Do U want to see a Harry Potter theme park in London?
