Over the past fifteen years, Cllr Danny Boys Moylan has never had a proper job.
You, the taxpayer, have been supporting him in various 'jobs' procured for him by the hapless Boris Johnson. One, the Mayor's Aviation adviser proved to be a disaster and the other, chairing some Olympic-related project, quickly folded.
|HARD TIMES AHEAD?|
But two things have inspired Danny to feel confident of maintaining his
lifestyle: both might now prove illusory.
Possibility 1 was that 'Frank' Goldsmith would continue to find work for him.
This seems increasingly unlikely as the unattractive Khan creeps ahead in the polls.
Possibility 2 was that Boris might have continued to be a useful patron: after all, at dinner parties, Danny boasted his patron, Boris, was PM in waiting and thus some potent job awaited him.
Boris's recent bizarre behaviour looks as if he might fall victim to Enoch Powell's wise dictum that all political careers ended in failure.
Doesn't much look as if Boris will be Prime Minister any time soon....
So Danny could be left out in the cold and end up, like disgraced ex Cllr Phelps, having to work for the Dame in some lowly domestic position.
