So, Boris made it.
As largely expected and notwithstanding a desperate attempt of the communist drunkard to exploit and foment social divisions as he did his entire life, Boris managed to sign another four-year tenancy agreement in City Hall; which, by the by, puts him in a very good position to sign another agreement for an even more prestigious building the other side of the river at some point in future.
But now that Boris did it, and the danger of the red madman has been averted, it is fitting to point out to the shortcomings of the man, and to the danger this means for true Conservatives.
Firstly, Mr Johnson has in the last four years developed an unpleasant tendency to try to compensate his public blunders with a show of political correctness and “sensitivity” simply unknown to him before he was elected mayor.
Boris the Mayor participates to so-called “gay pride” parades and says he is now the Mayor of all Londoners so it’s par for the course. Interesting. So, the day we get “incest pride parade” will he be there, too?
Then there is the recent episode with the Christian adv he has banned, showing an understanding of democracy and freedom of expression not far from Pol Pot’s, and sailing perilously close to the wind in times his boss the other side of the river is increasingly in trouble – among many other things – because of his anti-Christian “sensitivity” crap.
My impression is that whilst the man remains a talent, generally speaking a sound Conservative, and one of the best politicians around, we risk to lose him if he stops being the good old Boris we all knew and loved and tries to transform himself in another sanitised, harmless nincompoop spitting politically correct slogans because his adviser told him so.
Today, Boris is the one the entire nation looks at. It is clear that he is the designated alternative to the Chameleon, and that his content in Conservatism is vastly bigger. Yesterday shortly before midnight, Boris made his official entrance in Number Ten’s waiting room, and he seems destined to stay there until the current tenant is evicted.
But please, please Boris, be true to your real character and do not become just another chameleon desperately in search of votes.
Today is the day.
Today is the day an economy with a GDP of around USD 560 bn (in 2008) decides who will be its leader, one of the most powerful men in Europe if you look at the scale of his powers.
This man is one of the three or four most influential opinion makers: not only does he influence, directly or indirectly, about one in seven or eight people who live in this country, but his mentality and ways of life (socialist, or capitalist) ends up being one of the dominant traits of the political climate.
May I allow myself to once again repeat the suggestion to not give Boris the first vote, as his stupid declarations about homos have in my eyes deprived him of this right.
Please consider giving him the second vote. It count exactly the same – in actual fact – for his election, but it sends the message a candidate who does not defend Christian values as he should cannot be your first candidate.
Still, the most important task today is to bury the old socialist drunkard, hypocrite friend of Chavez, Red Ken Livingstone.
Let’s bury him as a politician today, and send him in the dustbin of history.
To the polling place! To the polling place!!
We all knew Boris Johnson was prone to say controversial things, but generally they were controversial for the right reasons.
To refresh your memory, the man is on record with the following pearls:
“we don’t want our children being taught some rubbish about homosexual marriage being the same as normal marriage”
The expression “pulpit poofs” for homosexual clergy is also his. The most famous is probably the one that if we allow marriages between a man and a man, then why not between three men, or indeed three men and a dog.
This was, of course, before the man was brainwashed by supposed “experts” and transformed in another little slut of politics, like Cameron. With the result that from un-PC and popular he is rapidly becoming sanitised, politically correct and increasingly criticised from those he needs more: the Conservatives.
Yesterday, Boris made a big mistake: he decided to try an improbable transformation in politically correct “Cameron Cutie” and decided to ban from the London underground a Christian adv campaign aimed at informing homosexuals (the Christians are Anglicans, therefore they call homosexuals “gay”) that there is a possibility of exit from what is a perversion rather than an “orientation”. Boris’ utterly stupid words:
“It is clearly offensive to suggest being gay is an illness someone recovers from and I am not prepared to have that suggestion driven around London on our buses.”
The man has now some explaining to do, because his utterance of yesterday is in such contrast with what he has always maintained that the accusation of being an election whore is perfectly merited.
I know, I know…. it’s election time and for some strange reason at election times everyone tries to be what he is not; in Boris’ case he might have the extenuating circumstance of being probably the politician most persecuted by PR and PC watchdogs on the planet. Still, this show of fake “sensitivity” is beyond stupid if your name is Boris Johnson and even your cat knows very well what you really think.
But this is not all: Boris ukase is not only stupid; it is profoundly illiberal and clearly discriminatory, then it turns out the Christian movement did nothing else than to mimic a pro-sodomy adv appeared some weeks ago. The poofs’ adv is allowed, the Christian one isn’t.
The Advertising Standard Authority had not seen any problem, either. Ah, but they aren’t working the sidewalks, and looking for clients before the mayoral elections….
Now Boris will be sued , and will have the pleasure of having not only his discriminatory behaviour towards Christians, but his cowardice and hypocrisy exposed in the last weeks of the campaign, severely damaging his reputation among those he needs most. The more or less rioting mob in Inner London will vote for Ken anyway, and Boris should know by now he would not take the homosexual vote (how much is that? 1%? Less? Seriously? What does Johnson smoke in the morning?) if he danced in a pink tutu in Trafalgar Square, singing Elton John songs.
This was bad, Boris. But let us be frank: you deserve it all. You deserve the shame, the accusations of hypocrisy, and the enmity of the Christians, and if there wasn’t Ken on the other side I would say you deserve to be kicked out of the City Hall and thrown into the nearby river.
