Boris Johnson - My Fake Diary
Monday, 6 August 2012
Soldiers complained the other day about "horrible" living conditions, boredom and a lack of Olympics tickets when I visited their packed warehouse base in London.
I walked past soldiers sleeping on camp beds in the open, cramped rooms full of dozens of makeshift beds, people washing in plastic crates, smelly portable toilets and an outdoor kitchen as he visited the armed forces' accommodation in the old tobacco warehouse.
It's been a chance for me to thank them and congratulate them and listen to what they have got to say - some of them want more free tickets - that's difficult to organise with a snap of the fingers.
I'll do my best though.
