Bumbling Boris shifts blame for his failed Garden Bridge
Foreign Secretary and former Mayor of London Boris Johnson was questioned by the London Assembly's Oversight Committee yesterday. Unfortunately he took the opportunity to grandstand himself in his usual display of pompous self-entitlement.
Johnson prattled his way through a series of questions that could have revealed how culpable he is for the loss of almost £50m of public money on a project that was improperly procured and littered with flaws. It was such a shame that the committee brought up the origins of the project and procurement: Boris has dodged these bullets before, and waffled away, the consumate professional liar.
There are still answers yet come to the Oversight Committee's table from the Foreign Secretary which we hope will result in another grilling for the reckless champion of the emperor's new clothes.
