Third Boris deputy stands down

London Mayor Boris Johnson has lost his third deputy since he was elected last year, after Ian Clement was been forced to resign over misuse of his corporate credit card. Clement, who was deputy mayor for government and external relations, was reprimanded earlier this month for using the card for personal spending. He was cleared after an investigation found that he had made no gain, but City Hall said yesterday that “further discrepancies” had since been found.
