on boris

3 May

You’re probably not wondering what I think of the mayoral elections, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to tell you. If a blog is anything, it’s a medium for ill-informed twaddled, so, you know, I like to do my bit.

So Boris is now mayor of one of the most important financial hubs in the world. A man famous for a runaway mouth and roving eye is now responsible for our capital city.

I like Boris. Regardless of his occasional outbursts and undoubted shadiness, he is for all accounts an affable and liberal fellow. He believes in the small state, one which serves and doesn’t dictate. He’s compassionate (one only has to read his articles to see he cares about his constituents). And he’s intelligent and informed. But Boris has never had to run anything but a magazine, been a disaster whenever he’s been given any sort of political responsibility, and is incredibly prone to almighty gaffs.

So desperate were the conservatives in their attempts to topple Red Ken, they turned to Brand Boris: everyone’s favourite sexually promiscuous, scruffy-haired baffoon. Is it really good enough?

It’s disappointing to me, that among the parties they couldn’t find a come up with a suitable candidate. I’m even more disappointed that, considering this failure, the people of London continued to prop up our tired political system. There was absolutely no reason why the mayor of London had to be party-political. Why not find a multi-lingual executive, with proven managerial pedigree to represent the people of our great capital?

No offence to Boris, but come on, Mayor of London? You have to be bloody joking…

    So you only oppose this win in terms of his ineptitude and inexperience at leading? Nothing to do with his values or policies?He is only liberal as far as drugs and sex are concerned. And compassionate? Are you kidding? He would do away with the minimum wage, he would scrap social housing and the congestion charge and lord know what else.He’s a racist and a bigot who is now running a multicultural and socially diverse city. Gulp!He’s good circus entertainment and nothing more.

    “He’s a racist and a bigot who is now running a multicultural and socially diverse city. Gulp!”Any proof of that, or are you just swallowing other people’s propoaganda? And what has scrapping the congestion charge got to do with not being compassionate?

    Oh lordy! Erm, calling black children piccaninnies is proof enough of his racism and his views on gay marriages are testament to his bigotry. And the congestion charge is a compassionate policy. It’s not beyond the realms of possiblity to have compassion for our environment as well as for each other. A £25 charge on 4×4’s is definitely compassionate towards the environment . . . and pedestrians.
