The Intellectual Hypocrisy of Boris Johnson

Boris Johnson MP has a piece in the 'Telegraph' today entitled "I'll drink to a longer life, but I'm not sure how I'll pay for it".
It makes the soft and subtle immigratonist case, that the UK's birthrate is so low that 'insofar as the British population is set to grow, it is entirely thanks to immigration. '
As was noted recently, BJ has done his bit to reduce the UK's birthrate in the not so distant past - but no doubt the abortion he procured for Petsy Wyatt was motivated by the depth of his libertarian principles, one of the most profound of which is that absolutely nothing should stopyou getting on with your life.
