While campaigning for the mayoralty, Boris Johnson promised to spend Â£744,000 on new centres for rape victims. Now he has gone back on his word, cutting the money available to only Â£233,000. This really is a disgrace. It is one thing to adjust spending in line with the current economic climate, but quite another to reduce the amount available to 31% of what was originally promised. Still, as long as there is still enough ratepayers’ money to hire people from Policy Exchange, everything is okay.
