Boris Panics Over His News International Links
It's final week of campaigning, and we could do with some lovely Sacktivists to help us out in the final days before voting. But what's Boris been up to? Well, take a seat.
First, he declined to appear on the London section of the BBC's Sunday Politics, despite Ken, Brian and Jenny all appearing previously. Instead, he sent Kit Malthouse, who claimed Boris has a "long-standing engagement that he had to do this morning."
He later described it as, "a private engagement this morning”. And what was this private engagement, that stopped Boris being questioned on his policies, just days before Londoners head to the polls? Er... it seems he was out campaigning in Wimbledon and Kingston.
The bone of contention? It seems Boris was unhappy with a report by the BBC's Tim Donovan into Boris's links with News International, including the fact Boris solicited News International for money even while they were being investigated by Scotland Yard over phone-hacking. Boris descended into panic over the fact that his links with Murdoch were repeatedly exposed by referring to Tim Donovan as “fucking bollocks” directly into a BBC camera:
Sonia Purnell, a former colleague of Johnson's who wrote the biography “Just Boris” tweeted several other facets of Boris's relationship with News International:
If like us, you think London deserves better than someone in the pockets of the Murdochs, vote to Sack Boris on Thursday and if you can, help us spread the word on Wednesday by joining our ever-growing team of Sacktivists.
