I know there are some who will argue that Boris just utters the public grumbling and what the man on the street says, but I don't personally see that as a virtue. I can't really understand why he is still around at all. This isn't the first time he's let his racist opinions leak and I doubt very much it will be the last. Other MP's have uttered things and been suspended fairly promptly, so why not Boris? Why does Boris have to go through a protracted enquiry before suspension (and later, possible expulsion)? Why not just suspend him now and limit the further damage he can do, have the enquiry and expel the court fool? What is it about Boris that makes him so untouchable, as if no matter what he says or does, nothing sticks?
