The mayor of London, Boris Johnson, was born in New York. So when he suggested that our President, what with his part-Kenyan ancestry, may feel an ancestral dislike for the British Empire, one wonders: dost thou project too much, Boris? What of your very own ancestral New York values? And port-swilling Nigel Farage–Cro-Magnon or Neanderthal, you be the judge. British colonialism and imperialism, what’s not to like?
Anyway, Obama ordered them to sit themselves down at the back of the bus, pardon, queue, terribly sorry.
Update May 7: London, England has elected its first Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan.
