Last night Ken Livingstone hosted the leaders of the political groups on London's Local Councils at City Hall. During his speech he was keen to emphasise the importance of building Crossrail to the whole of the UK's economy. His turn of phrase is unlikely to impress his friends in Holyrood:
"We need Crossrail to keep London's economy ticking over so that we can continue to pay for the Scottish to live the lifestyle to which they are accustomed."
Ouch. Do I feel another Standards Board referral coming on?
