It’s been unearthed that Boris Johnson wrote that the poorest 20 per cent of British society is made up of chavs, losers, burglars, drug addicts and criminals in a newspaper column.
Boris Johnson, who was a Conservative MP and editor of the Spectator magazine at the time, wrote in the Telegraph in 2005 that the poorer voters who live in run-down estates only continued to vote for Labour due to the deluded hope of bigger handouts.
He added that this bottom one-fifth of British citizens furnish us with the chavs, the losers, the burglars, the drug addicts and the 70,000 people who are lost in our prisons and learning nothing except how to become more efficient offenders.
In an aside aimed at his political opponents, he said that some Labour MPs only wanted to ban the smacking of kids due to their disgust when they see a chav belting their children in supermarkets.
It further emerged that Boris Johnson had labelled the kids of single mothers ill raised, vulgar, threatening and illegitimate and accused their fathers of being too weak to take charge of their women.
But Boris Johnson’s remarks simply show that he has a hatred for working-class people across the United Kingdom and before becoming Prime Minister, Boris Johnson used the prerequisite of high profile newspaper columns to spread prejudiced abuse at Muslim women, black people, single mothers, working-class people and other groups.
And this history makes him ill-equipped to be Prime Minister, particularly at a time when our country is divided and urgently needs to come back together again.
Boris Johnson has also previously claimed that income inequality may be necessary due to the lower intelligence of some poorer people. Boris Johnson said that whatever we may think of the value of IQ tests, it’s surely relevant to a conversation about inequality that as many as 16 per cent of our species have an IQ below 85 while about 2 per cent have an IQ above 130.
Boris Johnson further argued that he didn’t think that economic equality is plausible because human beings are far from equal in raw ability.
Boris Johnson has been dogged for decades by criticism about his hateful remarks that he’s made about groups including Muslims, black people and gay people and a Business Insider previously revealed, in a 1998 Telegraph column about Peter Mandelson’s withdrawal from the Labour government, Boris Johnson said the announcement would lead to the blubbering of tank top bumboys in the Ministry of Sound nightclub, and the soft-lit Soho drinking clubs frequented by Mandy and his pals.
He further added that Mandelson’s departure would cause the lipstick to come away from Tony Blair’s government and in a separate Telegraph column, Boris Johnson further bewailed attempts to increase equality at the BBC for gay people.
It must be a spoof, he wrote.
“In my hand was a magazine from something called the BBC Resources Equal Opportunities Unit. There were letters from gays asking about their “partner’s” right to a BBC pension.”
In his 2001 book “Friends, Voters, Countrymen,” Johnson compared gay marriage to bestiality, writing that “if gay marriage was OK – and I was uncertain on the issue – then I saw no reason in principle why a union should not be consecrated between three men, as well as two men, or indeed three men and a dog.”
And when questioned about his record, Boris Johnson declined to apologise and told LBC that his earlier remarks had been taken out of context and were undeniable perversions of what he’d written.
And he told LBC’s Nick Ferrari that he needed to go back and look at the context and that so much of the stuff is disinterred to deflect from the basic issues of this election.
It’s this sort of biased discourse that makes Boris Johnson so attractive to numerous Tory voters because such people would see his flamboyant, dismissive and generalised description of people as telling it like it is.
And the whole tone of them insinuates that there’s always a spiffingly manageable solution to society’s more complicated problems and that Boris Johnson and his followers have it up their sleeves, provided it doesn’t require too much money and if you want simplicity in our public life, then fascism must be an attractive option.
I have always believed in fairness equity and honesty, but sadly Boris Johnson’s party is the embodiment of the opposite of all three.
But well done Boris, now he’s going to put the voters off and now I suspect we’ll get a hung parliament, silly clown Boris and watch this space, Labour will catch up in the polls before you know it, so be extremely afraid Tory rent boys.
And maybe instead of slating off the chavs as he so eloquently puts it, he should be doing something to make them more flush and not destitute but he won’t because Boris is just an Eton mess and there are loads of people that went to public school and had a vested background but they didn’t become a lying beaver, like Boris Johnson.
And I’m sure Boris Johnson has had many a bailout through his life from his father, trash a restaurant, just get a cheque from daddy, yet most people have to take it on the chin if stuff goes wrong or they mess up in their life.
Some people have marked learning difficulties and then everything in our complex society is more challenging for them to manage but easy peasy if your toff family provide a safety blanket financially but not so easy when you’re on zero-hour contracts and an unreliable number of hours a week.
Every country has vulnerable people but if that country looks after them, the crime rate goes down because they’re not pushed to desperation but then Boris Johnson doesn’t live in the real world and he unquestionably doesn’t understand the country he’s running because some of the best-hearted people in the country are what Boris Johnson calls the bottom of the barrel and it’s Boris Johnson who’s the low life with his dishonesty and betrayal which puts him right at the bottom of the barrel.
The Conservatives have made so many poorer and they intend to do even worse when Boris Johnson finally gifts the NHS to Donald Trump and only the top echelons of society produce extorters, liars, financial criminals, corrupt crooks, political perverts and exploiters, isn’t that right, Boris Johnson – Better class of thief, better class of crime!
But then this is representative of Boris Johnson, discrediting the poorest in society, but then again, the Tories have been doing this for over 200 years. The worst thing is, we’ve come to expect it from them and we know what Boris thinks about the blacks, gays and Muslims and working-class men, so what he thinks about the poorest comes as no shock.
And women, they’re just there for his pleasure and to be thrown aside when no longer needed, just like a pimp would do. You know what they say, Boris, if you’ve got nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all!
