Does he think we're stupid?

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.

"Does he think we're stupid?"

No, probably not.

"Does he know that there's no prospect of him being stopped at any point?"

Yes. Somewhat.

and to make matters worse, about 19% of the electorate only voted for him and his non-driving cronies.

And what exactly is wrong with the London mayor having powers in London?

If we're going to have one, the powers make sense.
