I have noticed recently that the new edition of Transport for London's Local Cycle Guide No. 6 has the outlined eponymous profile of Boris Johnson's head (outlined in a squiggly little blue line) between West Drayton mainline station and the top of Park Rd. Uxbridge. This, of course, is a prime example of the "absolute hubris" of the man, which is something, of course, that the average London man (usually someone with his entire life already planned out ahead of him, in detail), whom I suppose is also inordinately interested in cycle maps of London, would not exactly expect out of the blue, even knowing all about the "absolute hubris" of Boris Johnson (or Boris the Bold, as some like to call him) by watching him perform his political juggling tricks while peddling his wares on London Tonight for years. I suppose this is an example of what was talked of (above) by Cathy Haynes, although, I suppose, one not as she would have expected when she first asked for certain cartographic examples in the particular question (above) concerning certain imaginary maps on the importance of doubt.
