From the Mayor's media centre:
"At the start of Boris’s second week he has been able to deliver two more election promises – making London greener and cutting the Mayor’s publicity budget. The planting of 10,000 street trees will improve the residential streets that need them most with the planting programme directed at deprived areas that often have no trees at all. Had Ken Livingstone been re-elected, Londoners would have spent around £2.9 million this year on the Mayor’s personal newspaper. By using some of the money saved from The Londoner – around £1 million per year – London’s most deprived areas will see an extra 10,000 new trees by 2012."
Is it me or these press releases becoming more adulatory? More political even?
