Mayor of London
There is nothing to study in the mind of Norway’s mass killer. ... It is not enough to say he is mad. Anders Breivik is patently mad: no one in their right mind would behave as he has done. ... My friends, there is no easy way of saying this: a lot of what this evil nutcase says could be drawn from the blog-post threads that you will find in the media, especially the “conservative” media, in Britain. ... It was all about him, and his feeling of inadequacy in relation to the female sex.
Breivik was not, in fact, a killer of immigrants or Muslims. He was a killer of Norwegians. The particular set of obsessions that led him to madness and then to mass murder were not merely racist. They also sprang from an insane conviction that his own government was illegitimate.
