The New York Times solicited an op-ed column from Conservative Member of Parliament and (UK) Spectator editor Boris Johnson. Johnson’s column was published in the Times on March 16 as “Bush’s war, Blair’s gamble” (the link is to an abstract of the column). Johnson found the highy refined editorial process to which the Times subjected his column somewhat bizarre, and recounted his experience in a piece for the Spectator: “Well, hush my mouth.” In his National Review Online Impromptus column yesterday, Jay Nordlinger recommended Johnson’s Spectator piece as the single most entertaining item he had read recently. Don’t miss it.
UPDATE: Coincidentally, Boris Johnson has a good column in the Telegraph this morning: “Blair can still have it both ways.”
