The lefties are out in force again today, despite the “civil war” that is about to break out within NuLabour, they are trying to use me to besmirch Anthony Browne. They cannot seem to come to grips with the fact that the Marxist Ken Livingstone was elected out of office and it simply has yet to sink in that somebody like Boris Johnson and of course myself now push the buttons.
I have not exactly been backward in coming forward to criticise some of the Mayor’s rather exotic appointments but in the case of Anthony Browne’s swift transfer to City Hall as head of policy I cannot help but think that this is at least a step in the right direction. Obviously there are people within the BNP that I would like to see there instead, but all things in good time.
All in good time indeed. Funny that Barnbrook thinks that Anthony Browne is a step in the right direction. Hmmm… I wonder why that would be. Could it be because racist websites like V Dare think he’s a hero? Could it be because, like the BNP, he believes ‘Islam does want to conquer the world’ and all Muslims are part of this conspiracy? Nice friends you have, Mr Browne.
Update: Dave Hill has written this spot-on article for CIF:
Is Mayor Johnson concerned about Browne’s off-message past? I’d say that in a certain way he is. I’d say it’s significant that the press release announcing Browne’s addition to Johnson’s team stresses his “expertise” in environmental, health and housing issues but makes no allusion whatsoever to his view â€“ expounded in another Spectator article published under Johnson’s editorship â€“ that the multi-ethnicity typical of inner London goes against the grain of basic human desires, let alone his seething contention, quoted above, that “there is little British left” about the city whose future, according to Johnson, Browne will be “helping to shape” in the next four years.
