Re: Sadiq Khan’s Mayoralty

[QUOTE=immac;1152132]If he has had this money in the bank, why has he waited until now to put it to work? In the meantime, while he sits on £100 million, he bleats about not having the money to police the streets (or plant a single tree).

The Government has the responsibility in funding the Police Services. This extra money is coming from business taxes and Council taxes. which he now has the power to divert to the Met.

The lack of funding of the Police is a National problem. thank TM for that.

Re: Sadiq Khan’s Mayoralty

£ billion and counting , perhaps the DUP could patrol the streets of London in place of the police , they frighten me enough.

Yes, I think the rabid support in the face of his incompetence is because he is, as you say, a Labour politician. They used to say, that in some Labour constituencies, you could put a donkey up for election and be sure it would get elected: Mr Kahn is turning out to be a real ass.

Re: Sadiq Khan’s Mayoralty

Seems the norm is that London Mayors are judged after their tenure is over, options then are suspension or Foreign Secretary.

Re: Sadiq Khan’s Mayoralty

How many Deputy mayors, assistants, directors, Spads & others are needed to run the London Mayors office?

https://www.london.gov.uk/about-us/g...ns#acc-i-52730

Then there's the various Councils & their staff costs + expenses...…

"In our current consultation we enquired whether the remuneration of an MP remains a sound comparator to fix the remuneration of a borough leader. In general the responses agreed that the comparator was appropriate and, if anything, that the Leaders of London boroughs warranted a higher remuneration than an MP, because they had greater financial responsibility and legal burdens, and especially given the differential pension arrangements. Indeed one respondent authority suggested that the direct responsibilities of a Leader should command the salary of a Junior Minister.

We sympathise with the responses. Certainly the way in which MPs’ remuneration has outpaced that of leaders would prompt a review of the Leaders’ allowances had the Panel not had regard to the current stringent economic circumstances. For the same reasons which prompt us to peg the Basic Allowance, we recommend that the special responsibility allowance for a Leader should be in accordance with our former recommendation, plus the subsequent local government staff pay awards, ie £57,085. We recommend the maintenance of its relation to other special responsibility allowances, as set out in the Appendix to this report. Nevertheless we hope that parity of the remuneration of the Borough leaders with the remuneration of Members of Parliament will be restored when the economic situation eases and that the other Special Responsibility Allowances will then be adjusted accordingly."

https://www.londoncouncils.gov.uk/wh...cillors-london

One might be forgiven for thinking; given the generous salaries on offer that these posts would attract the most experienced & competent applicants.. So why was the job of Deputy Mayor for Police & Crime given to this woman?

You’re hired! Sophie Linden accepted as London’s deputy mayor for policing and crime despite ‘worst CV ever seen’".


https://www.hackneycitizen.co.uk/201...ation-hearing/

I looks like the Mayor's office & staff have become an unwieldy burden with the right hand not knowing/caring what the left hand is, or should be doing & is in desperate need of trimming back!

Maybe then the money saved could be better spent on extra Police? Who, whilst their job is much more challenging & even dangerous is a pittance when compared to any of the salaries in the above!

https://www.payscale.com/research/UK...73a4a7e/London

Too many Chiefs, Not enough Indians! (no pun intended or insult implied....)

And why do Londoners pay so little Council Tax in comparison to the rest of the country? That's another area where extra funds could be raised.....

Re: Sadiq Khan’s Mayoralty

Well Tin , next time you vote for Mayor of London you can make your feelings known . Similar to your earlier diatribe concerning the Previous incumbent , the Conservative Boris Johnson whom you took to task so accurately when you made these point so succinctly.

Us Londoners must stick together Tin ,who you voting for next time ?

Re: Sadiq Khan’s Mayoralty

And just who is causing all these crimes where is a graph/list to show the nationality of the perpetrators.
I fear Khan is too busy paving the way for his own kind rather than want to bother with politics.
