Headline

Councillors demand parliamentary inquiry into Garden Bridge fiasco

Comment

It would be easy to dismiss the concerns of the two councillors and the MP as just political opportunism, but how can it be when the issues at stake are so fundamental? If the Hon. Boris Johnson MP hadn't ignored Margaret Hodge's request to tell his side of the story we might be in a different place (and so, possibly, might he) - but we're not, and there are some very basic questions to be aired. Not least the way in which the planning decisions for something that would have had a major impact on the centre of what's still our capital city appear to have been left just to the two local councils - and Boris. Cronyism, corruption and the abuse of power and privilege are all suspects in this story.
