It takes a special skill to make a broken promise sound like a victory, but Boris has got it totally nailed down:
That's £466,000 a year as opposed to his election manifesto promise of £744,000 a year.
So he's still breaking his promise, but just not as much as before.
Boris had promised to fund three new Rape Crisis centres in the capital explaining that:
"Quite simply, we believe that it is more important to fund Rape Crisis Centres than press officers?"
But with rapes up 14.5 per cent from last year, shouldn't Boris cut the expensive spin, and start paying for those things that he promised London he would?
