If Gordon Brown misses a target because of the world recession the Tories still say its all his fault. By the same token, Boris Johnson's mustn't be allowed to get away with excuses for his own failure - he is responsible for missing the London housing targets. His policies have been a disaster and they haven't had their full impact yet. Reducing the requirement for affordable homes and letting people like Greenhalgh in Hammersmith delete affordable housing from schemes in their borough is all down to Johnson. It gives us a clue as to what life will be like when Grant Shapps is in charge.
