I see that Labour bloggers who inevitably support the corrupt current London Mayoral maladministration are trying to spin a little lie out about Boris Johnson and a busker in Croydon. The story they are putting out is the Boris posed in front of a busker with a 20 pound note in his hand for photographs as if he was going to give the musician the money.
Once the photos were taken the note was said to have gone back into his pocket. As you'd expect, this has been greeted with the usual faux outrage from the Lefties. Bob Piper is doing his usual comment about how brilliant Livingstone is as well. That's the brilliant man of the people who likes to spend the people's money opening offices in Communist dictatorships.
The only problem with the story is that it is complete bullshit. What actually happened is that Boris Johnson gave the busker some change and there was never a note. Of course, you have to wonder don't you, if it was anywhere near the truth then why hasn't a single hack or photographer published it?
Why did it come from a single unnamed source that emailed a Back Ken blog and not from the journos that were actually there? The obvious answer is the smell that surrounds the Labour spin.
