The Lord Mayor of London
On Saturday I went to the Lord Mayor's Show, one of the best spectacles this country has to offer. It doesn't have the polish of the Americans in the New Year's Day parade, and it has an amateur thread that runs deep. In contrast, there is a assured professionalism that is unmatched. I'll be talking more about that in days to come.
For today, I will just share with you the very best place to stand on the whole parade - on the Victoria Embankment just north of Blackfriars Bridge - and leave you with a video clip of the mayor in his carriage.
