Rather belatedly, I have been looking at the new GLA web-site.
I am sure it is very wonderful and well worth its cost in terms of the improvement on the old web-site.
However, it does show us the limited ambition of Mayor Boris Johnson and his administration.
At the foot of the Home Page is the heading “WHO RUNS LONDON” followed by a helpful list of the key figures and agencies.
Not surprisingly, the London Assembly is bottom of the list.
But second from the bottom is the Mayor of London (below Londoners and the London Boroughs).
And what heads the list: Central Government, of course.
So now we know – Mayor Boris Johnson has already run up the white flag and surrendered. Is that why he is so keen to get back in the House of Commons?
