Clearly the old mayor has still not got out of the habit of repeating outrageous porkies in the hope that they will stick in people's minds. Take for instance this claim:

"The waste so far of Boris Johnson's administration includes £30 million a year extra cost to Transport for London for implementing its cycling programme now that the income to cover it from the £25 a day charge on gas guzzlers will not be received ..."

The old mayor knows full well that the Emissions Related Congestion Charging scheme he proposed would have led to a reduction in Congestion Charge income. A small number of increased £25 charges from large vehicles would have been more than offset by the loss of £8 charges from many more band A and B cars. The idea that the scheme would have generated new net cash to the tune of £30 million is an outrageous lie.

I notice there were no denials from 'kin Newt.

The phrase "Used the LDA like his own personal chequebook" springs to mind

Just the kind of guy you want running a banana republic - which is what Livingnewt made London.

You can stick your red flag up your arse.

Taylor, you steaming nit, why do you think Boris Watch is a Labour blog? I know you and facts are normally strangers (remember the £1.50 Oyster bus fare?) but a quick check of the About page might clue you in for next time. I think you owe us an apology.

Tom,

As well as being rude you seem to be entirely off thread.
