Andrew Gilligan gave Lee Jasper, the Mayor’s £117K a year Police and Equalities advisor, both barrels again today in the Standard. After four pages on Wednesday and two pages yesterday another two pages are devoted today to Jasper.
I guess it isn’t illegal or even vaguely corrupt to draw a £117K salary from the state and only spend £90 per week to have the use of a £750K housing association home. It is immoral though. He has had a good salary from the GLA since 2000 and most Londoners would expect him to stand on his own feet and not look to housing assistance from the social housing sector.
If this photo from the Standard is indeed Japser’s home then he clearly hasn’t got enough taste to keep the satellite dish from the front of his gracious Victorian home.
