A Very British Cap

Officials scorn claims of European-style eugenic plan

The London Haystack has denied that his repudiation of "Kosovo-style social cleansing" should in any way be considered a repudiation of Conservative social cleansing.

"What we will not see, and will not accept, is any kind of Kosovo-style social cleansing of London," the London Haystack told BBC London. "On my watch, you are not going to see thousands of families evicted from the place where they have been living and have put down roots."

The remarks were initially interpreted as an attempt by the London Haystack to emulate Ken Livingstone by opposing an unpopular and inept government of his own party.

Numerous politicians have tried to attract voters by copycat activities, as with the Prime Minister's emulation of Tony Blair's emulation of Margaret Thatcher, or Nick Clegg's emulation of Tony Blair standing shoulder to shoulder with a hereditary princeling with a doubtful mandate.

However, housing minister Grant Shapps said that only a few thousand people would be affected by the policy, and that rents would begin to fall as soon as the essential human decency of landlords was permitted to shine through, whereupon the London Haystack proclaimed that he and the Conservative Party had been in agreement all along.

Nick Clegg had earlier made clear his burning sense of moral outrage at any attempt to link Conservative social cleansing policies to the social cleansing policies of other nations.

"Britain has a long and honourable tradition of its own, reaching back through Dame Shirley Porter's social mobility initiatives to the suggestion by that great Conservative and Liberal and Conservative, Winston Churchill, that the unemployed should be sterilised and put in concentration camps," a spokesbeing said.

"To suggest that there is something foreign about these plans is an outrageous re-writing of history and a slur on Britishness."
