Put shagger norris (the man who ran jarvis into the ground whilst hooovering up PPP contracts into the LDA; is this really the best we can do) and perhaps more interestingly BJ is gpoing to act as chair at TfL

Not true. We have contracts with printers which have a clause in that ends them if the lease on the particular water is lost with no compensation payable.

Here's the super-secret rich 'elite' club that Boris Johnson and David Cameron were members of at Oxford University. These are the people that the Tories want to run our country and capital city...

This applies equally to Boris as Cameron...

The 1,000 dinner suit

In an age of meritocracy, the Tories have chosen a leader who was propelled upwards by money

o Roy Hattersley
o The Guardian,
o Monday February 19 2007
o Article history

This article appeared in the Guardian on Monday February 19 2007 on p29 of the Comment & debate section. It was last updated at 00:09 on January 12 2008.


Who - apart from the authors, hoping to attract attention to their David Cameron biography - cares that the leader of the opposition smoked cannabis when he was 15? Perhaps one or two crusty old Conservatives in the home counties, with alcohol and tobacco as the drugs of their choice, think that the youthful indiscretion should be held against him for life. But that sort of person never liked him anyway. And, as the opinion polls confirm, the general reaction to the "revelation" was a collective metaphorical yawn. There are better reasons for attacking the Tory leader than his momentary desire to be "cool" back at Eton in the 80s.

That does not mean last week's tittle-tattle left Cameron unscathed. He suffered what the Pentagon would call collateral damage. His problem was not the pot, but the picture. Because of the sudden interest in his background, it was published in almost every national newspaper. The group of supercilious undergraduates were not schoolboys whose silliness could be forgotten. They were grown men - old enough to vote, fight and marry. And, in their own estimation, they were the elite of their generation. Otherwise, they would not have been invited to join Oxford's Bullingdon Club.

Sadly, the picture was not in colour. So it did less than justice to the glory of the official Bullingdon uniform - full evening dress in royal blue with cream and buff facings. The coats, former members of the club were proud to boast, cost 1,000 back in the 80s. Of course, Papa paid. Indeed, parental generosity was essential to Bullingdon Club membership. Somebody had to pay for the damage that its members did on their nights out. And damaging property was one of the purposes of the club's existence.

To be fair, smashing up restaurants was only the climax to the club's idea of a good evening out. The wanton vandalism was always preceded by members drinking themselves into near-insensibility and vomiting on each other. It was only then that they began to throw the crockery about, break the chairs and tables, and shatter the windows. The owner or manager of the establishment was, of course, lavishly compensated for the wilful destruction and paid a bonus to ensure that he did not report the criminal damage to the police. At Oxford, the leader of the Tory party enjoyed the company of rich louts.

No wonder Cameron urged his followers to "hug a hoodie". He clearly identifies with young men who wear distinctive clothes as the badge of their incipient violence. Like members of the Bullingdon Club, the youths in cheap sweatshirts are a product of their environment. Those who become ruffians usually spring from families that have too little. The men in the royal blue tailcoats became hooligans because they had too much. Think what would have happened to the yobs of the club if a malign fairy had stolen them from their cradles and exchanged them with infants from a south London council estate. They would have become part of the Asbo generation. Smashing up restaurants would have led to prison, not to parliament.

The most offensive aspect of Cameron's Bullingdon years is that he and his cronies were bought out of trouble by their rich families. They flaunted the idea that people with money can get away with anything. In 1963, after Alec Douglas-Home had become prime minister, Harold Wilson expressed his surprise that "at a time when even the MCC had ended the distinction between professionals and amateurs, the Conservatives have chosen to be led by a gentleman rather than a player". Now, in an age when all the political parties claim to believe - for good or ill - in meritocracy, the Tories have chosen to be led by a man who was propelled onwards and upwards by family money.

The Labour party ought to make the Bullingdon picture a feature of its next election campaign. There are a number of Cameron photographs which, put together, would provide an entertaining leaflet. Each one could be captioned with one of the questions that opinion polls ask about politicians. Bicycling to the Commons, followed by a chauffeur-driven motorcar, would justify "Trustworthy?". Supporting Norman Lamont on Black Wednesday would precede the inquiry "Best at running the economy?". And the Bullingdon Club photograph? The question it provokes is obvious. "Understands ordinary people?"

Mayor's U-turn over using fourth plinth for war hero memorial


Mark Brown, arts correspondent
Friday May 30, 2008
The Guardian


Contemporary art on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square looks due to stay after Boris Johnson withdrew his support for a permanent statue honouring the Battle of Britain hero Sir Keith Park.
During the mayoral election build-up, Johnson said he supported a campaign to use the fourth plinth to honour Park, a New Zealand-born RAF commander who is seen as one of the greatest - and perhaps most unsung - commanders in the history of aerial warfare.


In the cold light of being mayor, it appears Johnson has backtracked. Although he still wants a permanent central London memorial for Park, the mayor, in a written answer given last week to a question from Labour assembly member Jennette Arnold, backed keeping the plinth for contemporary sculptures.
He said Park's role in the Battle of Britain was critical. "His brave and distinguished service should be recognised and honoured with a permanent statue in the heart of central London. The fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square would be a wonderful spot, but it appears complex planning issues would make it difficult to secure this location on an ongoing basis. There are also outstanding commitments to exhibit contemporary sculpture on the fourth plinth. I recognise that this revolving programme has proved very popular with the public and I welcome the important contribution it has made in shaping public debate about contemporary art. I am therefore exploring, with the Keith Park campaign, what is the best option available for them in view of these circumstances."

A panel is due to announce within weeks the next artist to be given the fourth plinth spot. The six-strong shortlist includes Jeremy Deller's burned-out car from Iraq, Antony Gormley's plan to allow people on to the plinth for an hour at a time, 24 hours a day, Tracey Emin's proposal for meerkats and Yinka Shonibare's scale model of HMS Victory.

Yesterday the Sir Keith Park Memorial Campaign was putting a brave face on Johnson's comments.

The campaign's instigator, Terry Smith, chief executive of a city broker, said: "We are grateful for the support Boris Johnson has given the [campaign] to date. We welcome his comment in a mayoral written answer to a question by Jennette Arnold that '... the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square would be a wonderful spot ...' for a statue of Sir Keith Park. We look forward to working to overcome any obstacles to achieving this and to see Sir Keith Park's statue on the fourth plinth."

I think there's one coming up in October over the 2p rise on fuel duty, and possibly another on the road fund licence hike for 'gas guzzlers'.

That's two possibles.

If you add in the postponment of the new family business tax in the budget, and the 10p basic rate tax about-turn, it's 4 u-turns at the moment maybe, and we're not even half way through the year yet.

I'll keep an eye out for any more and get back to you.
