EDITORIAL

Editorial comment from Matthew Steeples Our editor tells it like it is and he rarely minces his words

The Stupidity of The Standard

In backing Boris Johnson as the candidate best able to “give Britain back its mojo” today, the Evening Standard lets down London suggests Matthew Steeples

London is a city that voted ‘remain’ in 2016 and one that did so incredibly clearly. Across all boroughs, 59.9% (2.26 million people) voted in favour of remaining in the EU and in some areas the percentage was as high as 70%.

 

Now, today, in announcing they are backing Boris Johnson as the best candidate to become the next leader of the Conservative Party, the so-called “Londoner’s paper” that is the Evening Standard, has shown itself as a title that doesn’t represent the views of the city for which it is published.

 

That the Standard’s editor George Osborne – a man who walked away from the chaos the government he served as chancellor in – is now supporting Boris Johnson – a man at the helm of creating the Brexit mess we are now in – is beyond ridiculous. For him to argue that “Mr Johnson is the country who might just get Britain feeling good about itself” and “it’s BoJo who can give Britain back its mojo” is nothing but cringeworthy and today we call out the Evening Standard for what it truly now is: Completely out of touch.

  1. Very sad that the editor of the Steeple Times does not back Boris J
    Who I hope will take the UK out of the swamp of Brussels and keep us from becoming a failed Marxist country like Venezuela. Please Get your priorities in order Matthew.

      1. Thankyou Peter, we all look forward to your obtuse comments at the Steeple. Perhaps if you don’t have anything interesting to say, apart from making snyd remarks. It would be better if you played with your twinky instead of the keyboard.

        1. Dodge? Your spelling is a little bit dodgy….educated people make snide comments….the Dodge’s of this world with an education by pass make ‘snyd’ comments! Use spell check if you cannot spell, dimitted dodge!
