Responding to the resignation of mayoral adviser David Ross, Labour’s deputy leader on the London Assembly John Biggs said:
“Having now lost almost as many advisers as he’s appointed, the serious questions about Boris’s judgement show no signs of going away.
“There’s no doubt this was a serious mistake by Mr Ross. But the greater error was from the Mayor, appointing him to such an important position within his administration. This was obviously not “just the man for the job” to ensure financial probity in the Olympics finances, as Boris claimed when he appointed his friend Mr Ross.
“The Mayor and the Conservative Party have put great faith in various city millionaire friends. Cases like this show that this faith is misplaced and their judgement lacking.”Other news from London Assembly Labour
