Boris uncovers Ken’s ‘wasted millions’

INVESTIGATORS ordered in by Boris Johnson, the new mayor of London, have found endemic waste in the way millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money was spent by the former regime of Ken Livingstone.

Huge sums are unaccounted for, have gone missing or were spent with little tangible benefit, according to the audit. And as the accountants got to work, Johnson discovered 39 bottles of fine wine, including Château-neuf-du-Pape, left in the mayor’s office by his predecessor.

A separate police investigation, led by John Yates, the Scotland Yard detective who headed the cash for honours inquiry, has uncovered evidence of corruption that it believes will produce criminal prosecutions.

People elect corrupt politicians all the time, and in the less northern nations they actually seem to like them for being corrupt! (Eg Jaques Chirac and Silvio Berlusconi). Good for Boris standing up for Germanic standards.

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
"

From William Shakespeare's "Macbeth"
