Conservative Home begin history of Boris Johnson

Those cheery fellas over at The Ministry of Truth have decided to rewrite history, and I have to say it's all looking a bit sparse.

So now Boris has finished his first term at school, it's down to those of us who have watched things a little bit more closely, to fill in the school report.

And if you're looking for dates then you will find them all here in the archives. And if you want to double check any sources then please head over here and over there.

Of course having set up an open Wiki, the Tory Homers will surely welcome any and all factual input into the history of Boris's administration. Won't they?

And they had the cheek to go on about the Londoner being like Pravda. At least the Londoner didn't claim to be a definitive version of events.

I can give them an even briefer version of events:

May: Elected

June: Messed things up a bit

July: Panicked

August: Went on holiday

You're a fine one to talk about rewriting history.

Is it re-writing history or sheer hypocricy, and double (evening) standards?

The obsession of 'making savings', when in fact the only savings that can be made are miniscule is crazy. The biggest saving seems to have been by cutting the police budget by £12 million. Not a headline on Conservative Home for some reason!
(Makes Alistair Campbell look like a straight-talker)
Wasn't there a saying once that 'you have to spend money to make money'?
When are these idiots going to realise that public transport is about getting from A to B effectively and efficiaently, not so that someone makes a profit. The market cannot achieve that - businesses profit by people travelling by public transport, if they can't do that, businesses lose out.

"The young sikh" - what's Kulveer Ranger's religion got to do with anything? How about "the middle-aged homosexual" or "the old Jew" or "the rabid atheist" for some of the other entries, in that case?

Are you feeling okay?

I've been so happy since Boris Johnson became London Mayor.

Thanks for keeping us updated Angela. I had been worried.

"Nothing on Glasgow East? La la la la la I can't hear you......"

Because a blog that covers London and Conservative politics is going to be particularly interested in the SNP.

*facepalm*

And don't forget that Boris was going to sort out crime.
Well, he's ahd a great week on that one.
He's cut the police budget by £12 million. (Although the Standard says he's making savings, of course).
Worse still, his crime fighting has been so effective that even his party leader has had his bike stolen!
Not all's well in Gotham City...

A woman in her '50s had her arm slashed by a 10-year-old boy who was trying to take her cigarette in Selhurst. See, if he'd been taught Latin, none of this would happen.

Unfortunately, the sort of thing that Helen refers to is an escalation of knife crime, although crime in general (including gun crime and other violent crime) appears to be in control.
Had these incidents ahve happened under Ken,. the Double Standard would have treated it differently - even though neither Boris nor Ken could be held directly responsible.
There are no simple solutions and we'd all deal with these issues better if there were no pretence that there is an easy answer.
Whilst on David Cameron's bike - is it on the time line?

If Chaeleon gets his way and a Commissioner for the Met is elected might not Mr Pastry beat Bojo this time?

better slapstick.

Leaving our hero free to take on the Twanky role at the Dogger bank Hippodrome Christmas twelvementh?

Almost a pity Chameleon will be pretty free himself in 6 months time . . .
