As I've just posted on the feedback page:

Open the "spending map" link and you discover the largest item starts with the word "Other". Not exactly a great sign of transparency or accountability...

I often wonder when I see 1million plus of limos around Druid Street for a City Hall mayors' meeting whether a simple(?) option would be for a quick piece of legislation that says anyone in a public office can only have access to an average priced car - say at Mondeo level. Exceptions could be built in for those with security issues such as PM, Home Secretary etc but do wonder why mayors, senior emergency service personnel etc. feel it is ok to be ferried around in a Lexus or BMW - after all both London Mayors used the Tube and bikes.

It could work like the current proposal on benefits cap and I am sure would be supported by the bishops!

I notice that someone puts A4 notes under windshield wipers 'Council Tax pays for this extravagance' - which the chauffeur comes out of Southwark Council offices to remove. The truth annoys?

Another day and the mayoral limo is blocking Barnham Street (passing vehicles having to mount pavement on East side of street, damaging pavement).

And at 16:15 both the mayor and deputy mayor have their limos parked in Barnham Street. Let them eat cake?

I hear that all the notes put on the mayors personal chauffeur driven limousine are in a file at 160 Tooley Street. I guess the police have nothing better to do than be called in by the mayor with a view to pursuing a charge of criminal damage.

Oops, I beg her pardon!
