While Gordon superglues himself to the bathroom seat, in Brussels we are being lined up to help save the Euro “whatever it takes, and there is nothing we can do about it” says Boris.
In his weekly article in the Daily Telegraph, Boris points out the sheer insanity of Gordon’s abortive attempt to stay at No. 10. He also points out the absurdity of a system that means Mr. Cameron has to oblige the demands of the party that came third in the election, and polled less seats than in 2005. It is crazy.
Boris says “Will Gordon ever leave the bathroom? Can I suggest that we avert our eyes from the soap opera and focus on the problem this election was meant to address – how to get the British economy moving again. We should be talking about how to create jobs for people, not jobs for politicians, and in all the jabber about changing the voting system there is a risk we will forget how the economy works. We are told that the SNP and Plaid Cymru and the DUP are likely to acquire a special importance over the next 12 months. We are warned that they are sending in ransom lists of demands – for Irish ferry-boat subsidies and Alex Salmond autobahns in the Highlands and Islands – as the price of their support in Parliament.”
Boris speaks the truths that others dare not utter “why we would be mad, mad, mad to cut the infrastructure investment – housing and transport – that allows the London workforce to live there and allows commuters to get there. It is the efforts of that workforce that will help to lead Britain out of recession, and whatever cuts the Treasury may have in store, and whether dear Vince Cable is involved or not, they should remember that London is the goose that lays the golden eggs, and if the Scots and the Welsh want more golden eggs to pay for their projects, then we need to look after that goose.”
