Dave Hill has posted the latest rather brilliant missive from the anonymous sleeper cell of Kennites, currently barricaded behind a water cooler, on the upper levels of City Hall.
As a fellow correspondent with elements of this cell, I can confirm that they do indeed have a terrible and secret mission, and it is this: the total and systematic indoctrination of their new boss.
Andrew Gilligan is of course unimpressed:
"four months in, marvels one senior TfL figure, “Boris's arrival has made no difference whatever. It's all going on exactly as before.” No programmes have (yet) been cancelled. No personnel changes have been made. Indeed, one senior TfL person has just been appointed, of all things, Boris's environmental adviser.
"Less than a year ago, as further leaked emails show, Mr Hendy was secretly plotting with Ken's chief of staff to “refute Boris's transport ideas”. Now, in a truly gymnastic feat of brown-nosing, he has apparently persuaded the new Mayor that his sole purpose in life is to implement those very same ideas.
"It's surprising that someone as bright as Boris can fall for this obvious nonsense. What it probably means is not that TfL will end up working for Boris — but that Boris will end up working for TfL."
Of course it all started off very well for Mission Gilligan. Many of his Policy Exchange colleagues (himself aside) got jobs and the appointments of Tim Parker and Patience Wheatcroft looked set to propel London to the bright sunny uplands of Ken eradication.
But with the complete debaathification of London almost in sight, Mission Gilligan went and axed itself.
First we had the flop which was the FAP report and then we had the steady exodus of failed Policy Exchange and CCHQ place men, culminating in the complete discrediting of those very people who had been sent in to organise Boris's every move.
And with their fall from grace complete, Boris instead fell upon exactly those people who had been running the show for years.
And as the old borough boys moved in to clean up the mess, we are left with an administration not radically different from the one that Ken left behind.
Of course there will still be many controversies and bungles ahead.
But if Boris wants to make a success of his Mayoralty (and he clearly does) then he can only do so by taking the kinds of practical steps that only those people who have run London for the past decade and beyond know how to take.
And if that means listening less to Gilligoon and his pals, and more to the reds under the bed, then that is precisely what he will do.
