*Mayor gives away powers.

It has been revealed today that Boris Johnson has ceded all his planning powers to an unelected advisor – Ian Clement. He had previously denied this. So much for transparent government and accountability.

Ian Clement is the man who abolished Meals on Wheels in Bexley. He told pensioners that they would no longer receive their meals on wheels service but should instead order frozen food from 'approved suppliers' on the internet. This would "provide users with greater choice and offer an enhanced service."

Ah, says it all really that Boris can't trust himself to run London.
