I'm really starting to wonder what the level of contempt that Livingstone has for Londoners actually is. In response to the Queens Speech he's said that it will bring a "major devolution of planning, housing and skills powers from Government to London's city-wide government". Obviously, when he says "London's city-wide government" what he actually means is "me". Sometimes I wonder if he has a poster in his office that says "believe the lie". It's the only way I can reconcile the blatent disingenuity in the statements he makes.
