We see the early signs of a Tory-run strike force as it gets its forces marshalled and marching towards the next London Mayoral election.
Is it too early to remind the voters of the vast expense that was unleashed when Livingstone finally got his hands on the council chequebooks?
I think not, because the voters are easily fooled, and the electoral mass-memory is too short for politicians to rest upon their laurels.
After the debacle of the Expenses scandal, lots of the existing thieves were actually voted back into Westminster by the foolish voters who believed they actually had a choice!
Mind you, Boris has by no means been perfect, but a straight choice between him and the man who thinks that Cuba is a paradise on Earth should leave the blond in charge again comfortably!
