Op-ed: London Mayor, Tory Boris Johnson, is coming to the end of his time in office and some will say not a moment too soon.
Friday he has put his foot where his mouth should be again and stirred up a hornet's nest.
Mr Johnson or as some in the mainstream media like to call him, BoJo, has already shared his opinion that President Obama should not weigh into the UK EU in or out referendum calling it interference.
That has since been spun any which way but loose as all camps try to gain political advantage.
But Friday he has overstepped the mark by using language that could be interpreted as racially offensive to and about President Obama.
He opted to write a report for Murdoch's Sun publication which perhaps says it all.
In that article he wrote about the removal of Churchill's bust from the Oval Office noting "Some said it was a snub to Britain. Some said it was a symbol of the part-Kenyan President’s ancestral dislike of the British empire – of which Churchill had been such a fervent defender.”
David Cameron has hung Johnson out to dry by claiming the bust removal notion is 'false'.
Cameron however has led by example this week when he used parliamentary privilege to abuse Mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan.
Labour's Diane Abbott called Johnson's comments “offensive” and "the worst Tea Party rhetoric.”
Suffice to say Kenyan is trending on Twitter Friday and Johnson is set to feature in a series of to the point memes.
Some of his 'butt out' argument will ring true with the British electorate but is now overshadowed by that silly story about that bust and his offensive part-Kenyan assessment as to why Obama is in the UK.
As the EU referendum date draws ever closer the Tory party are deeply split. Old pals are acting like worst enemies and it is difficult to believe they are working in the same political party.
If ultimately they can work together post-EU referendum, as if nothing has happened, they will be the worst kind of hypocrites and liars.
It is far more likely that whether the UK stays in the EU or leaves the current Tory party will need a huge reshuffle.
Iain Duncan Smith who spectacularly resigned from his Tory role at the DWP not so long ago, tearfully citing differences over the amount of budget cuts inflicted on the poor and vulnerable, continues to show his true colours.
Many will say his resignation was always about the EU.
"EU referendum: Iain Duncan Smith claims David Cameron begged Barack Obama to help him 'bully Britain' over Brexit" the Independent.
So maybe IDS wanted to be free of front bench shackles so that he could wage his BRexit war?
But we British are only funny as in peculiar.
News that Obama was going to come here to try to persaude us to vote to stay in the EU was a red rag to a bull and could have acted like reverse psychology.
But now we have political buffoon Boris Johnson almost alleging Obama's part-Kenyan heritage makes his intervention something sinister we may just opt to stay.
We rarely suffer fools gladly or do anything they say Mr Johnson and you should know that.
Johnson's family links were extended when he appeared on genealogy show Who Do You Think You Are. The Telegraph reported:
The programme found that Mr Johnson's paternal grandmother, Yvonne Eileen Williams - affectionately known by the family as "Granny Butter" - was a descendant of Prince Paul Von Wurttemberg, a German prince.
The Johnson family also have strong Tory Party links and Johnson is or should that be was touted as a potential future leader of the Conservative party.
Liked by some as a jovial joker in the pack more people these days see him as more of a threat to democracy.
And with those royal links maybe they are right.
Either way Johnson showing yourself to be an ignorant bigot is not a good look.
