Wouldn't be surprised if he does well in the Mayoral vote. I don't rate Khan or Bailey from what I've seen of them, though Khan would probably be the strong favourite.

A mayor who is independent of party politics would certainly be refreshing.

But he is an Old Etonian, and neither black or a Muslim so not very 2020 according to that absolute stuck up over paid wanker Justin Webb of the BBC today

It was the obvious question to raise, not a statement of opinion.
Stewart fielded it very well, didn't take a dig at Khan or Bailey. Expect to see him as the go to guest for discussion shows, so will make a change from Farage.

Bailey is a tosser, deserving of the conservative party.

Can’t think of anything much more 2020 than having massive over representation of white, male Etonians in political power in Britain.

Really need to get over this obsession with where people were educated and focus on what sort of people they are.


I recognise that sometimes the two can be linked, but it's really only the second that matters.

Yep. It would be great if people from all walks of like were in the house, and then in cabinets, but... Posh school or shit school doesn't really equal a good or bad person.

Patel went to a state school and she is a massive ****.

Yep. Its worth remembering that Howard Marks went to Oxford University. The only real problem with Eton is that is very hard to get into if you can't afford it (its actually quite hard to get into if you can afford it).

We shouldn't disparage what are excellent educational establishments - only that we cannot offer that level of excellence to everyone (which is arguably the fault of government educational policy, not Eton school).

Problem with Johnson, isn't that he went to Eton or Oxford, its that he's a lying two faced egotist, and paradoxically syphocant, c**t with the moral backbone of a eel. He's just a well educated one.

If the two can sometimes (I'd suggest often) be linked, then it's not really only the second one that matters surely.

It is really. There are plenty of fine people who went to Eton, and if we don't say they are fine because of Eton, why should we insist that those alumni who are prats must be prats because of Eton.


Importantly for me, people can't choose (normally) where they go to school. But they can choose what sort of person they want to be, and what policies to practice. And that surely is the only thing that matters.

The Tories weirdly seem to like him, and he's formed a cult of 'Boris' among impressionable and often somewhat gulible Right Wingers and Brexiteers who seem to think of him as somekind of ineffible figure, and that any abuse or trampling of just due process in delivering Brexit is fine.

Which is why he's dangerous, there seems to be a fanatic element thats attached themselves to him, who consider any price acceptable for Brexit (provided of course I suspect they don't actually have to pay it).

Sounds a bit over-qualified for the job then

So are you suggesting that the environment in which you are educated, and in which you spend much of your formative years, is irrelevant in determining the sort of person you end up being? That doesn't sound very likely to me. Of course it's not purely down to that, but obviously it would have a massive influence.
