Dear old Mayor of London Boris Johnson has gone and done it again: take credit for something that’s nothing to do with him.
He’s done it with the Olympics, and Boris Bikes (we prefer to call them Kenny Farthings as it was after all Ken’s initiative) and now he’s saved the day by blocking the ‘ex-gay’ ads on buses that Transport for London had already blocked anyway. Hooray!
‘London is one of the most tolerant cities in the world and intolerant of intolerance,’ said the man who once said a man marrying a man was the same as three men marrying a dog. ‘It is clearly offensive to suggest that being gay is an illness that someone recovers from and I am not prepared to have that suggestion driven around London on our buses.’
And just to bring us bang up to date on the musings of BoJo, when asked in the current issue of Attitude, from whence this picture comes (the man can’t even shave properly!) whether his new party political pro-marriage equality stance was at odds with his former statements on the subject, he said, ‘I don’t think what I’ve said now is inconsistent with what I said then. You have to bear in mind that this was a late-night TV show. I was only extemporising an answer to a question that I hadn’t really thought about…’
Well, that’s alright then.
Funny, loveable old homophobe Boris Johnson saves the day! Again!,
