Happy New Year from Boris and me.

2010 was an incredible year in politics – one that will literally go into the history books and be remembered for decades. We saw the General Election, the formation of the coalition agreement, Gordon Brown’s bigot-gate gaffe,┬áthe TV debates, the Hoon-Hewitt attempted coup against Brown, Ed Miliband pipping his brother to the Labour leadership, Tony Blair appearing at the Chilcott inquiry, the Lib Dems voting for a tuition fee rise, the student protests in the capital, the Comprehensive Spending Review and, in America, the mid-terms.

Elsewhere, we saw the Icelandic volcano, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, that woman putting a cat in a wheelie bin, the Chilean miners’ rescue, the first World Cup in Africa, the Wikileaks saga, the engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the ‘big freezes’ in January and December…and Gazza turning up in the middle of the night to help Raoul Moat.

With the hope that 2011 is as interesting and eventful, I wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year. As does he…
