This slipped past me completely at the time. Was there an announcement? Anyway, Mayor Johnson's election campaign manager has, since 1st July, formally been his Director of Marketing - number three on this list - and being paid the top adviser whack of £124,364 a year. That's 24 grand more than transport director Kulveer Ranger and 40 grand more than culture director Munira Mirza. I'm sure Dan is worth every penny: needs them, in fact, if he's to maintain the very impressive sartorial standards he sets himself during the campaign. But wasn't Boris the man who was going to cut back on extravagant GLA spending on promotional flim-flam? And since when was marketing more important than transport and culture? I wouldn't ask, but that's the sort of nasty man I am.
