Another reason the Dame wakes in a cold sweat is the knowledge Boris has entrusted the safety of Londoners to an overweight podge called Stephen Greenhalgh.
Greenhalgh's tenure as Dep Mayor, Policing has been marred by bad decision making and general incompetence.
Whatever made Johnson think that being leader of a poxy little London Borough qualified Greenhalgh to run the Met. We Londoners live in very dangerous times. Greenhalgh is not the man for those times.
He should have considered his position when apologising for doing something he claims not to have done. The 'something he did not do' was touch a young City Hall worker's bottom in a crowded lift.
So why apologise for something he claimed not to have done?
More confusing still was his wish to 'apologise unreservedly for anything that could be or may have been construed as inappropriate on my part'.
Stevie is responsible for Met policing so, being 'the long arm of the law', his hands may have found the lift cabin too constraining, thus causing inadvertent contact with the lady's anatomy.
It's all rather odd......
If he didn't touch the lady's bottom why did he not come out and say so?
