Boris Johnson was recently revealed to be a hopelessly incompetent foreign secretary. Now information has been released that shows he was hopelessly incompetent as the Mayor of London, too.

The facts about the uselessness of the water cannons he bought have been known for many months – the amount of money he wasted has not been revealed until now.

Do you still think the Conservatives are the party of financial responsibility?

As for Mr Johnson himself – he is an inept oaf whose time is spent either with his foot in his mouth or busily spending other people’s money.

Can anybody explain his popularity?

And, most importantly of all:


A few years ago, Boris Johnson’s administration at London City Hall spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayers’ money buying water cannons.

The water cannons were apparently for protesting crowds, and turned out to be useless and a complete waste of money.

But apparently it was worse than that. Today, Sadiq Khan’s office reveals the full cost to Londoners of maintaining three unused water cannon:

  • Low Emission Zone compliance – £32,004
  • Re-painting – £19,035
  • Fitting CCTV – £19,376.70
  • Body work repairs due to corrosion   – £4,911.15
  • Supply and fit of 999 sirens – £3,109.20
  • Signage – £3,511.50
  • Installation of a Radio / CD player – £970.50

Yes, nearly a grand was spent just installing a radio / CD player to a bunch of water cannons. It beggars belief.

And that’s not even the worst of it.

Khan’s office reveal that more than £322,834 was spent on purchasing, fitting out and repairing the three machines.

This is all despite the fact they cannot legally be used in the UK and have ‘languished in storage’ for the past two years.
