(not satire – it’s Boris Johnson!)
Before his re-election, when asked whether he was planning to cut London’s fire services, Boris Johnson rather testily – but very clearly – denied it:
I am in favour of retaining the 27 fire appliances and all front line operatives…There shouldn’t be a reduction in the fire appliances… I don’t want to get rid of them, what’s the problem?
But now – surprise surprise – we discover Johnson has agreed to close 10 fire stations, axe 14 fire engines, slash 552 frontline firefighting jobs and remove two rescue units.
Which means cuddly Boris broke his promise.
Or to put it another way, the real reason he broke his promise is because he’s a deceitful, deceptive, delusive, dissembling, double-crossing, double-dealing, equivocating, misinforming, oily, perfidious, shifty, slippery, soft-soaping, treacherous, two-faced, bullshitting liar.
