|Thinned down finances as well....|
When Boris quits being Mayor the patronage ends.....
.....and so does the £120,000 or so a year Moylan collects.
Whoever wins; Khan or Goldsmith, will quickly bring their own people in. Danny will be jobless.
Danny is up to his old, autocratic ways. To give him something to do after the Boris Island cockup Boris has made him chair of the Nine Elms Bridge Design Committee. Naturally enough, he was invited to attend a meeting organised by protesting residents.
On 9th December over 200 objectors held their meeting to protest that the bridge would destroy Pimlico's last piece of green space.
Danny didn't have the good manners to turn up; rather he sent a dismissive message saying he was ‘absolutely confident that there will be extensive consultation on the proposal both informally by the promoter and in due course formally as the powers are obtained to construct it’.
Not if, you will note, but as.
The Moylan way of building bridges with taxpayers.....
The fact that he was probably at his luxury Thai beachside villa is no excuse for blatant bad manners.
You would have thought he would remember what happened when he bullied residents over the destruction of Sloane Square....he was sent away with a kick up his ample backside.
By now he should be in the Commons. Why is he not?
Because his inability to lead and inspire has blown his political capital.
A good brain wasted through lack of humility.
