Climate change activist/filmmaker Franny Armstrong has a lot of things on her mind these days. With the debut of her documentary The Age Of Stupid this past February you can’t blame her. The film chronicles six people in six different countries and their experiences with oil. Long an activist for reducing one’s carbon footprint, it was only karma that on Monday night she was saved from a group of hoodie wearing girls welding an iron bar that ambushed her (while she was distracted by her phone) by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, as he was riding home on his bicycle.
Mayor Johnson has made tackling youth crime and the environment Ã‚Â his top issues. Tackling both in one fell swoop, he chased the girls away on his bike and returned to make sure Ms. Armstrong made it home safely.
Although Ms. Armstrong didn’t vote for the current mayor, she admitted that he was her “knight on a shining bicycle”.
*You might be thinking that Mayor Armstrong looks a bit familiar…I just realized that he was the guy at the 2008 Olympics Closing ceremony who took the torch from the mayor of Beijing. I’d recall that hair anywhere!
