Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, came out with an odd sort of statement today. He said that terrorists are mostly people of low self-esteem who are addicted to porn because they’re unsuccessful with women. (I assume he meant ‘members of the opposite sex,’ since not all terrorists are men. Boris never was very good at the equality thing.) This opinion is allegedly based on psychological profiling of known jihadists by the security services.

So do I believe it? I have my doubts. Life is never that simple and the whole thing smacks of political-speak and weak propaganda. And if I’m right, it makes the Establishment look a bit silly, which isn’t much help in the war against terrorism.
