"Not satisfied with one lie, Johnson also used PMQs to claim that
Hammersmith Bridge is falling down because of Khan’s “incompetence”:
“Hammersmith bridge has been closed thanks entirely to the incompetence
of the current Labour Mayor of London, and that Shaun Bailey, the
Conservative candidate, is going to reopen it, which is the best thing
In fact, the incompetent who failed to repair the bridge at the right
time was Boris Johnson himself.
The bridge was built 133 years ago and is structurally unsafe after
decades of failure – by successive political authorities – to repair it
while traffic for which it was never intended used it.
It was closed in 2014 and repairs could have been authorised in 2016 –
but the mayor at the time – Boris Johnson – refused to authorise them."
Via Quinquagenarian Cathugger, who wrote "In today’s news: vicious prick
tells shameless lies that are roundly refuted within minutes, but his
adoring public continues to adore him. Same as any other day’s news."
