How do we feel about Ken getting his come-uppance?
Personally I think he's a self glorifying twat who forgot himself for a few minutes whist partying at our expense. He is all of London's representative, whenever he is on or off duty. He was outside his London Assembly building when legitimately, and politely questioned by a member of the press. Perhaps he was drunk? I couldn't say? If I forget to pay his congestion charge I don't expect he'll let me off. So I'm not in a forgiving mood. Now if he'd only said sorry straight away maybe I'd feel different, no, hang on, wouldn't work on my congestion charge either, so tough, Ken take your medicine like a man!
Do you know for sure that he was partying at our expense? Maybe it was paid for by someone else?
If you forget to pay your congestion charge then you are breaking the law; if a politician is rude to a journalist he isn't. And why should he say be forced to sorry if he doesn't mean it - isn't it preferable for politicians to retain integrity?
He didn't break the law but has been suspended from a democratically elected post by an unelected panel, depriving the electorate of London of a leader for 4 weeks. Now that's outrageous.
