Despite cutting Â£511,000 from funding for new centres for rape victims, Boris Johnson has decided to continue to spend Â£1.4 million of ratepayers’ money per year on offices abroad to promote London (without offering any proof that these offices actually benefit London). The offices are considered important as they ensure that
staff can go on junkets there at our expense London can be ‘sold to the world’. It’s not clear why a world-famous capital city which is an incredibly important financial centre needs to do that, but I am sure that those at City Hall who benefit from these outposts won’t complain too loudly.
