So it's official, Boris Johnson has gone native.
He's only been in the job a few years and now he wants to keep the poor and undeserving in their plush London houses, paid for by our taxes.
Interesting thought, but what's really going on here?
Boris has complained that low income families will be forced to leave the capital in some Kosovo style exodus.
If the Cap fits
Now, it's not for me to be cynical about this sudden change of heart from our elected Mayor, but it's difficult not to speculate that his real issue is not the re-locating of probable Labour voter from the Tory constituencies, but the removal of so many people working for minimum wages.
As with any other old Etonian, Boris must indeed be mightily concerned that this pool of poor workers will be forced to leave the Royal Boroughs and their surrounds, but the 'Ethnic Cleansing' that most concerns them is possibly nothing more than the worry of how much extra they will need to pay their East European cleaners for their extended journeys.
