Boris Johnson: UK's Poorest Are 'Burglars,' 'Drug Addicts,' 'Losers'

Boris Johnson wrote that Britain's poorest communities "[supply] us with the chavs, the losers, the burglars, the drug addicts..." In a newspaper column from 2005 unearthed by Business Insider, Johnson claimed that the poorest 20% live on "run-down estates" and only vote for Labour in the "deluded hope of bigger hand-outs." Johnson also suggested in 2013 that economic inequality was inevitable due to lower intelligence among low-earners.
