Boris Meets His Match

A hilarious article on bike helmets by London mayor (and lewrockwell.com reader) Boris Johnson;

“Here, then, is the political position. In my efforts to do the right thing, I have ended up giving offence to both opposing factions. As soon as I started to wear a helmet, I was denounced as a wimp, a milquetoast, a sell-out to the elf and safety lobby, a man so cravenly attached to his own survival that he was willing to wear this undignified plastic hat.”

    “Tut-tut, poor show, where’s your helmet?”

    Bua, ha, ha, ha! Gotta love the Brits. They do have such a flair for the English language.
