Boris “Facts”

At the risk of annoying those that think this blog is way too frivolous and partisan already, I found some of these “facts” quite funny.

It’s good to know that in the 4 days that we’ve known Boris had won someone has spent time, energy and presumably just a little money getting this together.

About Andrew Brown

I live in Lewisham, South East London, and spent 9 years as a Labour councillor in the borough between 1997 and 2006.

  1. You might not want to link to this either:

    it’s just like germany 1933 isn’t it

  3. Max says:

    “Boris Johnson invented the theory of intelligent design for a laugh”

    I can visualize him doing this one.

    thing is, with such a wide open target as the twat boris, both those sites are notable only for their spectacular lack of actually being funny, it’s like some shiny new labour apartachik whose never had a social relation in their life (apart from that with the market) has racked their brains for days to come up with that heap of crap thinking that’s what makes people laugh (probably off the back of a hastily convened focus group)

    typical new labour these days though, open goal staring them in the face and they hoof it miles over the bar

    on a different note, anyone have any opinions on boris’s appointment of simon milton as senior advisor for housing & planning? this guy is fairly vocal against ken’s plans to shower london with new skyscrapers and also is against the centralisation of planning powers in the mayor’s office and is more in favour of more powers being devolved to local authorities

    none of which to me seems bad on the surface, any thoughts?

    and why do i have a stupid image next to my name!

  6. rp says:

    The local authorities would be just as happy to “shower London with new skyscrapers” with or without consent from centralised planning. It’s not about planning consent, its about developers lobbying (lets call it bullying).

  7. ross says:

    true although i did quote the two things as seperate points i.e. this guys is against stacks of sckyscrapers AND is in favour of devolving more decision makiing to local authorities

    my point is more along the lines that anything that devolves power & decision making closer to those who are impacted by the wielding of that power/decision making is a good thing, it’s more of a principle rather than anything else and it obviousy doesn’t safeguard against bad decisions being made at the local level

    You might try Tory Troll for a different view of Sir Simon.

  9. ross says:

    never knew he was involved with that, mind you just as the principal of being anti-war isn’t sullied because the BNP happen to be anti-war, neither are the ones above either

    although it certainly does paint this guy in another light i’ll give you that – that whole affair was an outright disgrace
