Former TfL officer has ‘case to answer’ over Garden Bridge procurement


Mr Duvall has, understandably, chosen his words carefully - but, for 'fiasco', 'distorted' and 'amending', it would be reasonable to read 'scandal', 'corrupted' and 'doctoring', on the facts so far established. The former mayor has a habit of indulging in obfuscation and mudslinging to cover his tracks, and has already accused the current mayor of responsibility for the loss of public money due to the collapse of the project, and claimed misreporting of the facts in the press. In these circumstances - and in view of the wide range of participants in this grubby affair and the implications for public procurement - it's surely necessary to have an independent judicial investigation rather than open the way for Boris et al to drag the current mayor into an extended political free-for-all.
