Boris Johnson summoned by City Hall over Garden Bridge debacle


Boris might be compelled to appear, but can he be compelled to be coherent? Humorous incoherence is the magic trick he has consistently used on a de-educated and gullible public. If this were a court of law (which is where he should in fact be answerable) the prosecuting barrister would lay bare the incoherence and the judge would concur and guide the jury; but without such structures he uses the relativists defence - it's his judgement against mine, take your pick, there is no 'right' judgement. His chief officers should have been playing the role of testing his nonsense. But Commissioners Peter Hendy and Mike Brown never realised that they were hired to provide realism to Boris' flights of fancy, instead believing that they were paid £500k+ to be Boris' footstool and chief lackey. And Hendy and Brown blame Boris, of course - they claim he instructed them (although, in fact, no instruction was issued by Boris until after the procurement shenanigans and the project launched). Boris claims the project went through TfL's rigorous hoops, but in fact bypassed these hoops as officers rigged the process. Here's hoping the all-party team of the excellent Len Duvall, Caroline Pidgeon, Tom Copley, Sian Berry, Peter Whittle and Andrew Boff finally shoot the fox.
