Was Boris aware of the Bexley issues when he appointed him?

Whether he did or not is not really the point. It shows another lack of judgement on Boris' part.

The other more pertinant point is that it is alleged that a lot of the expenses on Bexley's card were incurred whilst Clement was campaigning for Johnson which is certainly not in the service of Bexley Council.

The Mayor's office (afaik) have refused to comment as yet.

I'm not sure that there is a lack of judgment if there is a lack of information. Judgment is usually predicated on the availability of facts.

As soon as Boris was made aware of dishonesty, he acted. As I said earlier, refreshing.

He acted by supporting him but saying there would be an investigation.

I believe that was related to credit card usage whilst a deputy mayor that was not considered dishonest. Once the Bexley issue became known he acted immediately.

You're right of course it is just bad luck to have 5 senior figures, all chosen by Boris, be sacked or forced to resign in just over 1 year - including 3 deputies.

If you haven't made sufficient effort to find out the facts, then that in itself is poor judgement.

To bastardise Wilde, to lose one deputy may be regarded as a misfortune...

By accepting the resignation after writing a strongly worded letter?

Surely its a case of doing it once can be swept under the carpet but twice and he has to go?

In that one was personal and the other was political. Although I don't see the political one as being much different, just coincided with what he was doing at the time rather than specifically used to support Boris' campaign.

Boris Johnson may have cultivated an image as a bicycling, cost-cutting mayor of London, but according to figures published yesterday he has spent more than 4,500 of public money on taxis – including one bill for 237.

Details released to the London assembly show Johnson's taxi claims dwarf those of his predecessor, Ken Livingstone, with 13 receipts for fares of more than 100 since he came to office in May last year.

The expenses came to light this week, a few days after one of Johnson's deputy mayors, Ian Clement, was forced to quit over the misuse of a corporate credit card.

The figures show that out of a total of 8,169 in personal expenses since he took office in May last year, Johnson spent 4,689 on taxis.

Among the claims are 13 receipts for fares over 100, including one of 237.50 for what appears to be a 7.5 mile journey across London – at 31 a mile. Other claims include a 99.50 return taxi from City Hall to Elephant and Castle, less than 1.5 miles away – at 33 a mile.

Another claim included a 99.75 cab from the Red Lion pub in Westminster to the City and a 101.83 return cab from City Hall to the Stock Exchange, just 2.4 miles away.

A spokeswoman for Johnson, who gets a free travel card, said his preferred mode of transport remains his bike, which he uses to get to work every morning. She added that much of the cost for the higher bills stemmed from multi-stop journeys and leaving the meter running while he attended events
