‘Social cleansing’ said Boris. And at that moment he may, and only may, have mean’t ‘Social-Cleaning’ in the context he said those words. Infact, as everyone should know, we use langauge in this way, to convey our feelings & thoughts.
Therefore, we all most likely are entitled to feel a little cheese’d off, so to speak, at the statement our Boris uttered later in the day. Then again, we must realise that though he is the Mayor of London, he is in fact subordinate to David Cameron the upper-most of our two primeminster’s. And as such, Boris must say whatever is the ‘party-line’ on this matter. Cos its he’s job to do so.
Perhaps a democracy would suit more!
