independence has occurred that few care to admit, if only because it has
happened by accident. As most of the
British Constitution in its present form represents a chapter of accidents this
is not surprising, only difficult to understand. United
May I call this new devolved entity, almost a state in its own right, “Borisovia” to recognise the man who realised the dream and enabled
to rise again to an independence and power it lost with the end of the Hanseatic League.
In doing so, we must cast aside any examples of the past of great cities that have been a nation or the seat of Empire in their own right.

But because this transition has occurred with notice or indeed any positive action by the
UK government and only through laxity and
stupidity it would be wrong to retain the name “ ” as then the weight of history would
weigh too hard. A new name is needed for
its new future. London
The reality now is that Borisovia has passed out of the direct and effective control of the
government. That Westminster Westminster

Borisovia is a state without a nationality. It has 230 official languages and a collection of subsidiary authorities that have become more subordinate to the Mayor and the Greater London Council than to

distinctive ethnic group although the balance can vary widely. Westminster
It has its own transport system and is able to demand from

Borisovia will get the major airport hub it wants within its own boundaries and
on its own terms. In defining what
“economic growth” might be or calculated it is Borisovia that decides how and
what should be done. Westminster
The key reason for the independence of Borisovia is its critical hold over the UK financial systems, which extend across the Atlantic Isles and by fiat over the remnants of the old British Empire which house all it subsidiary financial organisations that take care of so much of our wealth.
One source of error is to suppose that the forces of law and order and local authorities exert much authority. The reality is that this is in the hands of other groups presided over by The Mayor and his henchmen and women.
They are protected by draconian privacy arrangements through super injunctions available by telephone on request to special judges. The application of law and order is discretionary and largely in the hands of the most influential individuals.
Essentially, control is exerted by a “gang” system. For example Kensington and Chelsea is controlled by the Gulf gang, the Petrolheads, and the Russian gang, called the Gasheads.
In other places there are complex gang roupings that control all the major money flows from the usual activities channelled through the many major money laundries available adjacent and near to County Hall.
The Mayor is most anxious to protect them and to bolster their sources of wealth. Although he has great powers he does not control the money flows and has to defer to those who do. This wealth is one of the greatest concentrations in the world which accounts for he newly gained independence of Borisovia.
Travellers to Borisovia are delighted by the chatter of many tongues and all the quaint customs. On the underground there are groups of conjurers who can whisk away your wallets, mobiles and other possessions without you even noticing. There are all the enchanting beggars to whom you are obliged to give alms, or else.
