Boris Johnson forgets his £465,000 bill for consultants

As mentioned previously, Mayor of London Boris Johnson is running up very big bills for consultations to help him and his team settle into the job. Unfortunately, he now also seems to have forgotten just how much the bills are because he told the BBC today that:

I don’t think we’ve spent half a million so far: I think that may be the total of their annual salaries, something like that.

In short: wrong. Indeed, given how short the period of time is that many of the consultations have been employed for, giving their equivalent full annual salaries would give a figure far, far higher.
