It's alleged that Boris Johnson's mate Veronica Wadely was rejected during the interview process for the Arts jobs he's trying to get her into.
According to a mate's law, if someone's written it, it must be true. It may only be true for Guido though, who's strangely quiet on the matter.
"Boris Johnson was today accused of lying to the culture secretary, Ben Bradshaw, in an attempt to install a close former media ally as the head of Arts Council London."
"Johnson dismissed [the accusation of lying] as "complete nonsense"."
But then he doesn't have a great record of telling the truth when accused of wrong-doing. An 'inverted pyramid of piffle' anyone?
