The latest is a brewing scandal of Watergate proportions – did Boris agree to paint his new cycle superhighways their distinctive tone of garish blue because it also happens to be the corporate colour of Barclays bank, which sponsors the scheme?
The answer, you’ll be relieved to hear, is no. After some fearless digging by the Westminster team, we have found out from sources deep within City Hall that the superhighways are a colour called “pantone 3015″. The Barclays colour, meanwhile is known as “process cyan”. You see? Two entirely different things.
Anyway, with our minds now at rest we can focus on much more important things – like whether David Miliband knows the price of a kilo of bananas (he does, by the way).
