The Search for Willie Horton

The Sunday papers are desperately searching for Britain’s Willie Horton and they have over a thousand potential possibilities.

For those who don’t know who Guido is talking about, Willie Horton was a murderer released by Michael Dukakis when he was the leftish governor of Massachusetts, he went on to rob and rape and was used by Dubya’s daddy in TV adverts for his successful campaign for the Presidency. If the press find Britain’s own Willie Horton, Clarke is finished. Bookies are not accepting bets on him going.

UPDATE : Guido mistakenly identified Indrit Krasniqi, as one of the 1,023 criminals allowed to roam free in Britain. He is to be jailed for life for murder and kidnap tomorrow at Reading Crown Court. He is a nasty piece of work, but not Britain’s Willie Horton – as many better informed comment makers pointed out to Guido.

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
