Another day, another reason to raise an eyebrow at the activities of the Johnson administration:
An adviser to London Mayor Boris Johnson has resigned after making an apparently racist remark to a reporter. Responding to a claim that some black people might leave the UK if Mr Johnson became mayor, James McGrath said: “Let them go if they don’t like it here.”
Mr McGrath said his remark to an undercover reporter from the-latest.com website had been taken out of context. Mr Johnson said he knew Mr McGrath was “not a racist”, but the remarks made it “impossible” for him to keep his job.
Dave Hill has some good coverage of the story and reactions. Is it me or is Team Bojo already fraying at the edges a mere eight weeks into the job?
