Mayor Boles?

Guido understands that Nic Boles plans to throw his hat in the ring for mayor of London. Hard to say if it is hubristic or not. His performance in Hove was not brilliant and he would himself admit he was disappointed. So what qualifies him to be mayor of London?
The Policy Exchange boss has done lots of worthy things on “localism” he even served as chairman of Westminster’s Housing Committee and a few years ago Nic was associate producer of the West End production of “The Mysteries“. Which is a good way of describing the Tory selection process for their mayoral candidate.

The Tories plan to let Labour party members choose their candidate (Guido kids you not). Francis Maude, the party chairman, reckons “We already have the loyal support of our membership, … But now we need to reach out to the wider electorate and get new people involved in politics.” Anyone on the electoral roll will be able to choose the Tory mayoral candidate.

Guido is only too ready and willing to support and campaign for the man who has done more for the joy of London than any other, the proud Thatcherite, successful entrepreneur, supreme cultural ambassador and mayor-to-be: Peter Stringfellow.

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
