So they want to move from City Hall…

Sadiq Khan

• THE current Mayor of London is preparing to move the City Hall staff to another, cheaper, building.

What baffles me, and I’m sure many others reading into this story, is the economic perversity behind the building and the mayor’s office.

Built for £43million in 2002 it was then rented for £11million a year rising to over £12million.

Why was such a seemingly important and significant building not paid for and owned by its occupiers?

In four years the initial costs would have been covered and rent not an issue.

There is much criticism of Sadiq Khan over his spending but surely all our mayors have been profligate with the public’s money.
