Headline

Sadiq Khan slammed over £20m Garden Bridge ‘loan’ deal

Comment

In this one vignette De Cani and TfL display all the disregard for the public and our money of this entire shambles. We pay them huge wages (£600k to Hendy at the time) to manage and improve London’s transport while protecting the public purse, and their first job should be to bat away the outlandish and self-regarding projects ocassionally thrown at them by very interested individuals. But TfL was overseen by an elected huckster who had inverted that relationship and saw the Mayorality as his personal stepping stone to the Premiership, using it to promote exorbitantly expensive pet projects which he hoped would promote him. It was the overpaid senior officer’s duty to minimise the damage of this huckster, just as anonymous aides in the White House are reportedly doing at this moment with Trump. Instead they simply fell in with the huckster, getting overpaid to waste public money on baubles like the Garden Bridge – some of them even flouncing off to work for the purveyors of this outlandish and self-regarding bauble. Despite thousands of years of history to learn from and all the advantages modernity brings, when it comes to administration we haven’t really progressed beyond the Romans.
