Here's a comment I posted under Andrew Gilligan's "Ken Cronies" piece:
"Interesting that your headline describes the former GLA employees in question as 'Ken cronies', despite the article eventually getting round to revealing that the terms of their severance payments were approved by the Assembly and that no wrong-doing has taken place. Does this use of the term "crony" mean that the Standard will be describing Mssrs Malthouse, Parker, Milton and Browne as 'Boris Cronies' from now on? and can the rest of us describe Mr Gilligan as a 'Veronica Crony'? All in the name of fairness and consistency, you understand..."
A total of 33 comments have now appeared under the piece, including a number that are highly critical. Mine, though, is not among them. How odd.
