If Lord Brocket – convicted fraud, old Etonian and absolute cretin – is given public money then Britain will, in the words of Peter Cook, ‘sink giggling into the sea’.

Boris, employing a fraud would hardly the best way to ‘target sleaze’, and if you’re really concerned about transport then you won’t involve the presenter of Privates Exposed, will you?

““I had dinner with Boris a couple of weeks ago and we discussed a whole raft of ideas I have about improving the transport system,” Brocket told me over lunch at the Capital Club yesterday.

“His people want me to come in and make a presentation on some of the issues.””
