Feature: Soothing the Garden Bridge’s troubled waters


The last paragraph says it all, and if only our esteemed Foreign Secretary, the supposedly hon. Boris Johnson, had been unable to dodge Margaret Hodge's questions we might have learned rather more of the detail of what went on, seemingly behind the Board of TfL's back - and Nik Randall might have less cause to worry about the way TfL treats worthwhile infrastructure proposals from now on. But surely Tom Copley and Steve Norris are right - there needs to be a really effective review of TfL's procurement processes to avoid the risk of cronyism and clarify the suspicion that fear of antagonising such a powerful client has played a part in the Garden Bridge story. How Mike Brown can defend the procurement process is incomprehensible, and whether or not he's just trying to avoid any personal liability he should surely be barred from having any further involvement in public procurement.
