Is all the oxygen of international publicity going to the Mayors's head? The question has to be asked as dear old Boris seems to be becoming quite detached from reality.
Were he the CEO of a large plc his appointments would have got him fired: at least 70% of those he has made have been defective.
Thanks to prods from The Dame our Edinburgh based MP, Sir Malc Rifkind, has fired a broadside at Boris. Well done Malc!
He has written an extremely well reasoned and cogent letter to Boris. He explains to Boris that closing down key fire stations so you can make hundreds of millions flogging the sites to property spivs might not be a good idea when conjoined with the need to keep taxpaying residents safe and sound.
According to insiders at Sir Malc's office was received in a constructive way, so we hope a period of quiet reflection will lead to a proper needs analysis.
It is pity that MP's in adjoining and affected constituencies don't follow Rifkind's example and lobby Boris
Boris is all style and no substance. He loves being in the limelight, but has no attention to detail.
One day he will trip up badly playing to the gallery....
