Sherlockery Mockery

London's Mayor Boris Johnson says the fake news story that pops up at the end of the most recent episode (Season 3, episode 1) of the BBC hit series Sherlock doesn't bother him, even though it makes reference to the "current" Mayor of London's plan to situate an airport in the middle of the Thames. Mr. Johnson takes the position that the BBC has the right to criticize politicians and that the show's writers might be making reference to one of his predecessors in office. The BBC noted that Sherlock, is after all, just a tv show. Oh, and calling that fictional mayor "incoherent" with "hair-brained" (sic) schemes? Nothing to do with Mayor Johnson at all.
