Chairman Meow

The last time I checked, someone's ethnicity had no bearing on the appropriateness of their racial commentary. As you have stated, the gaffes have been bountiful and simply can't and shouldn't be bundled away and sped off in a sidecar full of genealogical spin. We need to remember that whilst a Mayor who has a deep understanding and belief in equality we also need a Mayor who is adept at acting on the World stage on behalf of a leading World City. Can the electorate put their hands on their hearts and say that they are willing to put the reputation of London and the UK in the hands and mouth (so to speak) of Boris?

"we also need a Mayor who is adept at acting on the World stage on behalf of a leading World City"

I agree with Chairman Meow. Which is why we don't need a Mayor who calls the US Ambassador a "little crook" - that is not how the Mayor of a leading city acts on the world stage.

And we don't need a Mayor that tells Jewish property developers to "go back to their own country" rather then question his own judgements.

And we don't need one that throws around accusations of racism like it's confetti.
