Johnson blows off at Vaz

Yesterday's news that Boris Johnson had irked Commons Home Affairs Committee Chair Keith Vaz over his knowledge of the Damien Green affair and that he then followed this with a tirade of the f-word should suprise nobody. It disappoints me. Our Mayor should be able to get his facts right. First he should not mislead Vaz in the first place over when he did or didn't call David Cameron on the day Green was arrested. If you don't know the facts, don't pretend (Some people call pretending lying). That aside, swearing in parliament shows a poor understanding of the standards required of those in public office.

Even the Evening Standard has covered this. As usual, Tory Troll has shamed my attempt to cover this story.

Did you get an email from Compas this week? Some of the ideas emerging from Compass are depressingly familiar. If they're the future, we're all in trouble:

"If you don't know the facts, don't pretend (Some people call pretending lying)."

Is that worse than knowing the facts and still pretending, as Brown is doing with the ecomonic situation and particularly his role in why we are where we are?
