The Troll was criticised today for having the cheek to question Boris Johnson's early holiday. But to be honest, the main reason I was annoyed is that I now have much less to write about.
Because with our new mayor on the high seas and with Richard Barnbrook seemingly in hiding, things in City Hall seem to have been running without a hitch.
But under our noses, the man who now really runs the capital has quietly been polishing his knives.
Boris's new first deputy Mayor, head of TFl, head of the GLA and all-round asset-stripper overlord Tim Parker held a meeting with the entire staff of City Hall today. To a crowd of worried civil servants, Parker boasted of having previously 'outsourced' jobs abroad and then gone on to reap the rewards.
But with most new jobs already outsourced to staunch Conservatives, some in City Hall are worried that any job losses will come from those on the left. And with no cuts yet announced, everybody there was looking for clues.
And with civil servants hanging on every word, Parker warned them that putting their own interest before the organisation was 'cancerous' and said that job numbers 'were unlikely to increase.'
And although he didn't say who or what cancerous parts would be treated, he did say that 'things would become clear' by the time autumn comes around.
So do you work at City Hall? Are you one of the "dogs in the manger"? Are you waiting to be "euthanised" by the Prince of Darkness? If so, then Tory Troll would like to hear from you ;)
