Does Boris really expect Londoner to believe he cares for the environment? You might recall Siân Berry and the Alliance Against Urban 4x4s asked the Mayor what he’d do for greener transport in London. He effectively gave them their answer today by cancelling an order for 60 hydrogen vehicles.
These vehicles were to lead [...]
Via the Evening Standard comes this:
Young adults will be banned from buying alcohol in shops under a scheme being backed by Mayor Boris Johnson.
Off-licence owners are to be asked to stop selling drink to under-21s, even though they are legally entitled to buy it at 18.
The voluntary scheme will start [...]
News in from Nick Boles: Boris didn’t vet Ray Lewis because he didn’t have time. The Supreme Leader Delegator’s former chief of staff claimed:
Boris Johnson’s team failed to vet disgraced deputy mayor Ray Lewis thoroughly because they were focused more on campaigning than on making detailed preparations to run City Hall.

Remember the Forensic Audit Panel? They’re Boris’ crack squad of independent figures appointed to root through the previous regime’s finances – two of whom lead Tory Councils. And, it emerges, a third is simply a party member:

The Rise festival is a free event organised by the Greater London Authority and supported by Canary Wharf, Transport for London, [...]
Is it that time of the morning already? Boris is considering another U-Turn. Quoth a GLA Document we probably weren’t meant to see:
The Mayor made a policy decision to cease the publication of the Londoner. It is not known if there will be a journal online or in another format at present. There [...]
Boris didn’t just change his tune on bendy buses in that Marr interview. His line on the bottles of wine apparently stashed away in City Hall subtly altered itself too.
Have a look at yesterday’s article in the Torygraph where the story broke. Here’s the original quote:
“They were very fine bottles left behind [...]
Boris Johnson is bad for the environment and tells lies. That’s virtually the message coming today from a Tory Council leader in Dartford over Boris’ wish for an airport in the Thames Estuary.
During the campaign, Boris promised that an airport in North Kent had been ruled out. Or so says Tony Kite, Conservative [...]
