In response to Paul Wood: Rory Stewart ‘too white, too posh’ to stand as London mayor
Webb’s question and its follow up were yet further examples of the utter obsession the BBC have with race and with identity. Webb should be castigated for insulting Stewart and demeaning what should have been an open conversation about what London and Londoners need from their next Mayor. It’s highly unlikely that Londoners need Rory Stewart and his pet unicorn in their city. As one of its residents, I can unequivocally state that it is not Sadiq Khan that we need. The stats will show that too.
That is what the interview should have explored. Again, disgraceful attitude from a BBC employee and revealing what disdain they have for anyone who they think doesn’t match their poisonous Marxist narrative.

Justin Webb: straight white privately educated man. Is he a hypocrite? Or merely a twerp?
Mr Khan, Mr Bailey, why should you gentlemen be standing to oppose a well-educated white British man? You’re enabling the abolition of indigenous white politicians. Surely you can see this isn’t appropriate?

I have a particular loathing for the languid mumbling Justin Webb. With Rory Stewart, however, there is a victim for whom one can feel no sympathy. Those who live by political correctness shall die by political correctness.
