Tonight on 18 Doughty Street, Iain Dale has a half an hour interview with The Spectator’s official candidate for Mayor of London. You can watch the entire thing here.  

One point that Boris makes that is well worth pondering the next time you’re sitting waiting for a tube train that is delayed or stuck in a tunnel for no apparent reason is just how many absurdly well paid people there are working in Livingstone’s transport bureaucracy:

“Do you know there are 232 people working for Transport for London who are earning more than £100,000 a year?! Two hundred and thirty two! In the Treasury there are 7 who earn more than £100,000. In the Home Office there are 43 who earn over £100,000 a year.”
