What do you hate?

According to Green Mayoral candidate, Sian Berry, Boris hates Londoners and wants to destroy them!

This was part of the bizarre outburst that Berry used to justify jumping into bed with Ken Livingstone, metaphorically of course.

I quite understand that there are differences in policy between the candidates but does anybody really believe that Boris wants to destroy Londoners? I thought that we were doing grown up politics, seemingly not.

  1. Sian did not claim that Boris wants to destroy Londoners, but to destroy our way of life:<>“Boris Johnson has real contempt for Londoners. He hates that we celebrate each other’s heritage; he hates that we try to pass on a healthy environment to our children; he hates that we look after our most vulnerable neighbours; and most of all he hates that we all expect to share in our city’s financial success. And if he’s elected he will do his best to destroy all of that” <>This view echoes that of Doreen Lawrence (< HREF="http://jamescleverly.blogspot.com/2007/08/doreen-lawrences-remarks-are-unfair-and.html" REL="nofollow">who you condemned<>) that <>“Boris Johnson is not an appropriate person to run a multi-cultural city like London. Think of London, the richness of London, and having someone like him as mayor would <>destroy the city’s unity<>. He is definitely not the right person to even be thinking to put his name forward.<>More recently we have seen that Boris has no understanding of the costs of running a transport system. With his plan to switch from bendy buses to a new breed of routemasters, he will destroy London’s finances by imposing poorly costed solutions to problems that do not exist.

  3. Jimmy, I’m sure that Doreen Lawrence could be a great person to have a drink with but I’ll take my political advice from others with more relevant experience, thanks.You couldn’t be more wrong about the plans Boris has for transport and the wider London economy. He’s the only financially sane candidate out of the rag-tag army of 14 who have registered for the election.Some of them are borderline padded-room jobs. Go Boris!

  5. <>“He is definitely not the right person to even be thinking to put his name forward.”<>And Ken Livingstone IS???I agree Geoff, some of the candidates do belong on the funny farm, but certainly not Boris. The man might be mad in the comedic sense, but at least he’s not mad in the stark raving bonkers Red Ken sense!It’s a shame Bexley closed down it’s mental hospital. I’m sure James could have found some suitable inmates from the list when he’s elected our GLA representative.I think what’s most relevent here (beside my jokey rant about mentals) is that Boris is a threat, and he’s running a positive campaign. People like him, he likes the people and he’s got the statistics at his fingertips. He’s done his homework AND brought an apple in for teacher. Ken is running scared, and the Green’s know they don’t have a chance, but are sucking up to Ken because he let them have the Deputy Mayor for a year and suggested some Labour voters would had over second preferences (because of course, candidates can speak on behalf of voters during election campaigns…).This is why the Secret Ballot Act (1872) was such a fantastic point in history.I think we should start a campaign to have Ken Livingstone charged with kidnap of Green votes and therefore corruption and bribery in an election (under the Corrupt and Illegal Practices Act (1883)). Could be a laugh, anyway.
