British politics is fun, in large part because their political spectrum is a lot wider than the Yankee version – I mean, sure, both countries have the Lunatic Fringe element (though the Brits have the Monster Raving Loony Party while the Americans are perpetually stuck with Lyndon Larouche), but the Londoners just elected a fascist to their assembly, while at most Yanks get a stray libertarian. (Do let me know if I’m wrong.) Also, that whole transferable vote thing.
Anyway, a friend of mine forwarded this ‘letter’ from Boris Johnson. It was not really written by Boris Johnson. It is a ‘joke’ or possibly ‘political satire’. It may only be funny to those who follow British politics. Enjoy!
