Greater London Authority was quick off the mark. They have said there is no
Get Out of Jail Free card
for council leader Teresa O’Neill, it is more a case of Go
to Jail, Go Directly to Jail and Do Not Collect £200.
After a follow up question the GLA immediately confirmed that when they said that O’Neill had never been offered paid employment by the Greater London Authority their answer also covered any personal invitation from or conversation between her and Mayor Boris Johnson. No one at City Hall has offered her a paid job is their final Freedom of Information response.
This is in marked contrast to what she said at April’s council meeting. The answer to councillor Munir Malik’s question wasn’t true. Can one believe any Conservative’s answer in Bexley? Probably not.
