I just noticed: the way Russian, American and English capitals’ mayors look seems to be representative of each country’s culture — or, at least, the popular image of that culture.

Moscow mayor Luzhkov:

(Silk suit in bad taste — the guy looks like a pimp… Red ball… What is he signing? It looks like a brochure with pictures — a set-up photo? Pompous, fake, full of himself…)

New York (yes, it’s the cultural and economic capital) mayor, Michael Bloomberg:

(Microphone, conservative look, talking to some journalist liar. Probably about some Great Cause, in which he without a doubt believes himself.)

London mayor, Boris Johnson:

’ello, mate! :)
