Garden Bridge risks were ‘downplayed’ to please Boris Johnson


So was the GBT's application to drawdown funding from the public purse after they signed the construction contract without meeting the funding conditions fraudulent? If it was then why did TfL hand over the money, and if it wasn't then why did the Mayor later soften the conditions (that still have never been met)? Put it this way - if anyone of us reading this had applied for that funding I suspect we would be in front of a judge, yet no one is and nobody will be, why is that? If you can answer that question honestly to yourself then you will be aware of the huge problem that this country has. This issue will now fall between the accountability gaps and nobody will be held to account, but those of us who have been over the detail are now a lot more 'woke' to this particularly British form of cronyism and yet there is nothing anyone can seemingly do about it.
