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.

    YEY BORIS! Boris may be a buffoon, but at least he’s not a communist one.

    Bloody good news! Praise the Lord! Thank God! There is hope for Londonistan. What will Red Ken do next?


    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    elect a communist

    someone who will work full-time
    to destroy your country

    We had better watch our ‘six’ here in the states though… Louisiana just lost a seat to the left…

    Whilst I am not a Londoner, I believe that Boris Johnson will be good for London. What I like about him is he is not into politically correct, he speaks him mind and sometimes he gets it wrong and is then man enough to apologise. In fact, doesn’t that imply that he is more like the rest of us, human? Can anyone remember Livingstone admitting he got something wrong?
