Boris deputy in committee meltdown, no answers on Olympic security

Less than a glittering first outing for Boris’ newest appointed chum, policing boss Stephen Greenhalgh. The deputy mayor was unable to answer questions from the Policing and Crime Committee — and had told the Met Commissioner to stay at home.

Assembly members were not amused, both at receiving no notice of Bernard Hogan-Howe’s absence and Greenhalgh’s seemingly having come without being briefed on the Olympics or knife crime. Green Party AM Jenny Jones became frustrated when Greenhalgh couldn’t answer her questions about undercover police, telling him that it was “getting a little bit tiresome”.

This probably shouldn’t be altogether surprising from Greenhalgh. He seems to be following his own advice to “fail running a city”, having once said:

“If you’re going to fail, fail running Alabama, fail running Texas, fail running the city of Paris…”

… or London.

    Nobody does ‘bumbling, overfed fuckwit’ better than a Tory.

    This Stephen Greenhalgh, this is the fat useless TWAT that Andrew “I love Boris” Gilligan said was “Brilliant”. Yeah, OK…. if that’s Gilligan’s definition of brilliance I suppose we now know how he can bear to look at himself in the mirror every morning.

    I see that the video is not now available… It’s gone private.

    Is that because they have decided that f*c*wittery displayed is not for plebs to see.

    Whatever, as a Scot from Dundee, but with dear friends in London, I hope that someone has the handle on security….if (clearly) not the police, then maybe some of the ‘cheap at twice the price’ security people sleeping under London Bridge… or the Army dudes they are making redundant??

    Clearly not the

    This video is on You Tube so why it has been made private on me is just a Tory sleazy trick.

    Jowly Tory prick. How dare he act in such a cavalier fashion towards people who’ve been elected to hold him to task? He wants his arse nailing to the fucking wall.
