Boris Johnson, biscuit snatcher
I attended my first meeting of the Labour Party's London Regional Board last night. Most of it I won't be blogging about (there's a limited audience for online reports of the rules revision process for the GLLP Biennial Conference) but there was an interesting London Assembly Labour Group report by John Biggs AM.
It seems Boris is making some rather petty cuts. Two examples:
- He has cut the budget for the biscuits that used to be given to school kids visiting City Hall.
- The London Living Room (on the top floor of City Hall) used to be available free to charities to host events. Now they have to pay 50% of the rental price - about £2000 - so most of them aren't using a space that was supposed to be accessible to all Londoners.
Stylish and thoughtful budgeting there Boris. Though what we would expect from a Tory Mayor.
