However this just takes the biscuit,
Livingstone defends mayor's powerWell that is quite a bald statement,
I think the point of the Sir Humphreys is to ensure d that due process is followed, but maybe I am mistaken.
Ken Livingstone has not disagreed with suggestions that his powers make London his "personal fiefdom" - saying it was the best way to bring about change.
As a directly elected mayor he avoided "Sir Humphreys" delaying things like the congestion charge or more police.
Mr Livingstone, under fire over use of public funds, said if Londoners "don't like it they can get another mayor".It appears to me that Ken has already thrown in the towel if he is making statements like that. It has to be up there with the infamous 1974 'Who runs Britain' campaign of Ted Heath.
