Scrap A Vanity Project, Plant A Tree!

As we saw in his first few days in office, Boris Johnson is going to make some real changes. First, appointing the impressive Ray Lewis to the position of deputy mayor, with a key role in tackling youth violence. And oh, how he has his work cut out for him, if the last few days is anything to go by....

Next, by bringing Ken's vanity paper and propaganda sheet 'The Londoner' to a screeching halt:
Mayor Boris Johnson has scrapped the Londoner newspaper in a move his office claims will save £2.9m.

The Londoner, a freesheet, was distributed to three million homes across the city.

Up to £1m of the saving will be used to fund the planting of 10,000 new trees in London's most deprived areas, says Mr Johnson.
Heh. Surely no-one could object to that? We'll see....

Oh I'm sure some Dave Spart figure is already tapping away at a keyboard with their face contorted with rage as he fulminates against the Old Etonian, Bullingdon Club member endangering working class children's lives my putting up dangerous trees that they could easily fall from.
