How Iain Dale covered Boris aides' resignations

"Ray Lewis & the 'Uncle Tom' Hating Leftists
"There's nothing the left hate more than a black person who does well in the Tory party. They look at successful black or Asian Tories and shake their heads in bewilderment at how such itelligent people can't see what they perceive as the real truth... If you're black and you're a Tory, you've sold out."



"Having enjoyed a huge PR success (and intensely annoyed Downing Street in the process) yesterday with the announcement of an Olympic parade, Boris Johnson is about to make a move which on the face of it will be seen as a setback, but in reality will demonstrate that he is really getting to grips with his job"


"Boris has made yet another stride forward in his quest to drive political correctness from City Hall for good. He has decided that Christmas must remain Christmas and that all mentions of Winter Festivals or the like are to be banished. Today City Hall sent out a press release telling a grateful capital city ..."


And before anyone asks, Iain did really write 'itelligent.'

I wasn't planning to celebrate Christmas, but now Boris has said it's OK, I've changed my mind. Good to see he's getting to grips with the big issues.

Indeed. A grateful city bows its head ;)

Does he realise baby Jesus was brown and Jewish?

Nobody else seems to have taken up Iain's Christmas exclusive. I wonder why?

No one else is on Boris's spin doctor's mailing list?

I'm trying to find out about these Winter Festivals Ken was so keen on. I've come up with the Russian Winter Festival, which was apparently rather popular, and isn't, as far as I can see, happening this winter.

I'd rather have a vodka in Trafalgar Square than sing carols with Boris and his multifaith leaders any day.

No press coverage of the Boris Saves Christmas story, but plenty of gullible bloggers willing to throw themselves under the bandwagon, judging by the 'links to this post' bit at the bottom of Dale's piece.

Helen said...

Boo! The Russian Winter Festival was great. I note there's nothing whatsoever on next year's events calendar.

The Troll said...

What I want to know is what Boris has got against winter? Bloody winter-hating, Russian-bashing, vodka-stealing... *goes off in a huff before end of sentence*

I've just added a message to the comment window. A couple of people have contacted me to say that their comments haven't published. I have also found that I have had to click twice before a comment posts. Sorry if your comments have been lost. Blame blogger.

Iain Dale said...

This is all the more hilarious because at the same time as you point out me mistyping the word intelligent, you misspell my name in your headline. hey ho.

The Troll said...

That doesn't make it any more hilarious.

We may be getting a Russian winter in any case. I blame it on Kennites conspiring against the Great Bojo

The National Review has decided that Boris's Christmassy frolickings represent "a small fightback against multicult[ural] lunacy in London".

This will truly be looked back upon as his finest achievement.

One shining moment ;)

I just knew that someone would take the bait.

Is it just me? Whenever anyone considers that not everyone is a white anglo saxon protestant able-bodied heterosexual male and considers including in our society the contributions of the 90% of people who are women, black, disabled, hindu, gay or lesbian - even atheist - they are branded as 'politically correct' - a term used to avoid considering that the world is changing.
Just look at the thread on Iain Dale's blog of the type of comments that at best suggest that there is a conspiracy to undermine the values of Christian society - as if they are all churchgoers anyway.
I am happy to call it Christmas, if only to know what time of year we're talking about. What is Christian about a Christmas tree? Even Boris with all his classical studies would have difficulty of finding any reference to conifers in the nativity. If we all had olive trees this time of year, he might have a point.
