    London's New Mayor Appoints 'Tough' Black

    Black school chief joins the Mayor's crime fight

    Telegraph 06/05/2008

    Boris Johnson's first full day at work as London mayor saw arrivals and departures at City Hall.

    Ray Lewis's appointment is the most tangible sign of Mr Johnson's desire to reach out to black Londoners......

    Mr Johnson, elected on Friday, announced the appointment of Ray Lewis, an inspirational black community leader, as a deputy mayor with a key role in tackling youth violence. Mr Lewis, a former prison governor, runs a successful school for troubled youths, which he predicts will educate Britain's first black prime minister. eyes:

    It also emerged that Dave Wetzel, a senior transport official appointed by Ken Livingstone, had resigned. Mr Wetzel, a Labour activist, told colleagues he was quitting as vice-chairman of Transport for London, the public body that runs most public transport in the city.

    In an email passed to Iain Dale, a Tory blogger, he wrote that he was proud of the Livingstone administration's record on transport and hoped the new mayor would build on its achievements.....

    Mr Johnson has promised deep cuts in bureaucracy at mayoral headquarters, saying he will use the savings to pay for more police support officers.


    The Mayor will address City Hall staff today, insisting he wants to work with Londoners of all political persuasionseyes:. But one insider predicted resignations "across the board," with Livingstone-era staff leaving the departments dealing with housing, children's policy, policing, business and economic development, waste, strategic planning, transport and community relations.( )

    Mr Lewis's appointment is the most tangible sign of Mr Johnson's desire to reach out to black Londoners.

    Mr Lewis founded the Eastside Young Leaders' Academy, which provides disruptive black youngsters with a combination of military-style discipline and a traditional education including poetry and the classics. It says that all pupils gain at least two A-levels and three quarters go to university........eyes:

    Mr Johnson said: "We face a wave of violent crime amongst young people in the capital. Kids are killing other kids. Ray will be part of my team who will work night and day until we put an end to this tragic trend."

    ------------------

    In my book a kid is a young goat; I've nothing against little goats mind....

    ....but "military-style discipline "? -- is this the way forward for young blacks .... not exactly hiphop, innit!eyes:

    am I being picky?

    cyfarchion

    1. If the intention is for this "successful" school to educate Britain's first black prime minister does that mean they don't intend educating white kids? This is a clear sign that those not of Anglo-Saxon origin are aiming to take over. They will probably get more concessions and preferential treatment under a PC white prime minister/mayor (hence the today's dep mayor appointment)

    2. As a secondary school teacher I know just what a numbers game qualifications is and that if 2 A levels is a indicator of success, I would be curious to know what they were and what grade. Also going to university is one thing but getting a good degree on a 'proper' course is another matter entirely. (someone else chose to use these as a measure of success)

    3. Surely an inspirational black community leader is an inspiration in the black community.

    4. "all political persuasions"?????? Can't wait to find out what job Boris has lined up for any members of the BNP??

    I agree about 2) - maybe we need more details of this specialist training.... and University these days can mean all sorts of wonderful things - who knows what goes on. Many will say that is why the Tories were so heavily elected this time.....eyes:

    time will tell....

    Its good that the blacks get good education, as the lessons seem to be more then ok but the aim to get them in politics or so sounds a bit wrong.

    They shouldnt go for that aim, i mean then we finally have some educated blacks and they take over thats not what we want.
    Educate them and send them back to Africa to build up there country or to become president there, that can help the Africans because they get a black leader with white discipline it can help us because they finally will have a leader that understands the way of the whites.

    But yeah thats probably not going to happen i do wonder what we will get first in Europe, a Muslim president/prime minister or a Negro.
    If christ is the answer then what is the question?

    Boris bans alcohol on London transport

    Telegraph 08/05/2008

    Drinking alcohol is to be banned on London buses and the Underground from next month as part of a New York-style "zero tolerance" approach to crime announced by Boris Johnson.

    The new mayor of London – whose policies are being monitored by David Cameron for possible adoption by a future Conservative government – said the move was central to his drive to cut crime and reduce anti-social behaviour across the capital.

    Trams and the Docklands Light Railway will also be covered by the new rules, which will apply from June 1.

    Unveiling public information posters, Mr Johnson said: "I firmly believe that if we drive out so-called minor crime then we will be able to get a firm grip on more serious crime."


    The change will mean altering the "rules of carriage" – the contract between Transport for London and its passengers – so that people are prevented from carrying opened bottles, cans or other containers containing alcoholic drink.

    For a year, passengers caught flouting the rules will merely be removed from the train, bus or tram. From June 1 next year, it will become a criminal offence.

    Recent figures have shown that 40 per cent of violent crime in London is alcohol-related and that some accident and emergency units are treating twice as many drunken patients as they did before 24-hour licensing was introduced in November 2005. Statistics also show that violent crime in London has increased by 13.7 per cent over the last eight years.

    Mr Johnson said the policy had strong support from the Metropolitan Police and Transport for London. It was also welcomed by alcohol charities.

    Don Shenker, the chief executive of Alcohol Concern, said: "Public drinking and the behaviour sometimes associated with it deeply affect people's ability to enjoy public spaces. Taking a firm approach to public drinking in this way sends a strong message that public drunkenness is socially unacceptable."

    Mr Johnson was supported by Peter Hendy, the London transport commissioner, who said he was sure the policy would prove popular with commuters.

    The measures are being introduced in close consultation with Conservative Party headquarters, where policy-makers are keen to learn any lessons for the benefit of what they hope will be a Tory government under Mr Cameron.

    Mr Johnson is also said to be considering taking advice from Bill Bratton, the Los Angeles police commissioner, on how to cut street crime. During his campaign against Ken Livingstone, Mr Johnson said people deserved the right to travel in London without having to confront people who had become violent or abusive because of drink. "I want everyone's journeys to be safer and more pleasant," he said.

    Earlier this week, he announced plans for disruptive teenagers to be sent to weekend "boot camps". Today the mayor is expected to unveil plans to cut waste and bureaucracy at City Hall.

    ---------------------

    We shall nodoubt be watching just how much TransAtlantic input there will be in all this changing of the Guard! Fine if it works ---- time will tell! There is no shortage of criminality in the Capital - much of it coming from undesirable aliens !

    Overpopulation is also quite a problem in the Capital...................eyes:
