Red Ken Livingstone and Labour Take A Beating as Boris Johnson Paints London Blue

Posted by Mike on May 3, 2008

Our British friends went to the polls in a series of local elections in England and Wales on Friday and the results were an unmitigated disaster for Gordon Brown’s Labour Party. In fact, it was the Conservatives’ best election result in years. The icing on the cake however, was that Boris Johnson defeated Red Ken Livingstone to become Mayor of London.

Although he was recently placed under the Imperius Curse, I’ve always been a Boris Johnson fan. He’s right of center, intelligent, amusing, and will not suffer from the same kind of anti-all-that-is-right-with-the- world diarrhea of the mouth that plagued Mr. Livingstone.

As expected, Conservative Home has great coverage of the elections.

Use The Farce

I’m not one of those people who laugh at every video invoking Star Wars, but this one is pretty good.  Obama might not be Luke, but Operation Chaos/Uncivil War fans will probably like it.  Enjoy.
