I’m told that no soon as Brown had sat down at PMQs today up popped Boris Johnson raising a point of order and protesting that the Prime Minister had misrepresented his position by saying in reply to a question that Boris had said that he wants to cut the budget of the Metropolitan Police. Well, over at LabourHome, they have the Johnson quote from a hustings last September:
“We have got to be absolutely clear where the scope for real economies is and the real big ticket for spending is the Metropolitan Police and Transport for London. That’s where the real savings, believe me, are to be found.”
Seems clear enough to me.
