Boris Johnson is not only the first Conservative party nominee to be elected as mayor of London, but he is a genuine conservative in the traditional sense – a small government, anti-multicultural, anti-war conservative in the Pat Buchanan/Ron Paul mold. London’s calling… America pick up the phone!
Writes Lew Rockwell:
“Boris, an LRC reader, has been elected mayor of London. Ken Livington, who is not all bad in foreign policy, was a socialist disaster as mayor. Not a warmonger either, Boris is a classical liberal, so congratulations also to the businessmen and taxpayers of a great commercial capital. An Old Etonian, Boris is brilliant and learned. Be sure to watch his charming victory speech.”
