An honest politician ...

After having, admittedly, a few doubts that Boris Johnson was just another 'politican on the make', after the recent furore surrounding an editorial (free registration required) published in The Spectator (of which he is Editor), it is pleasing to report that he has responded in a sensible and intellectually honest manner, accepting that there were matters which required his apology, which he has now given, but reiterating that there were matters raised in the original article which needed to be said. I am relieved and glad to say that my faith in at least one politician has been restored.
