The problem with part-works, as we all know, is that after the first edition with the free gift on the front it's difficult to keep up the enthusiasm and in the case of Johnson's manifesto there wasn't even a free gift.
So alas not much attention was paid to the prose style of the ANPR section on page 14 of the crime edition, nor for that matter what it actually meant for the freedoms of the people of London.
Amidst this historic amnesia the surveillance state is able to flourish and a renewed assault on administrative processes is going unnoticed. In 2012, Johnson published a multi-volume part-work manifesto.
Ultimately the best they can do is a total figure surveyed equivalent to 0.69% of the drivers affected by the policy - surely a quorum in anyone's book. In response to a Mayor's Question in 2015  he said: So to summarise, of the 0.001% of Londoners surveyed, almost 8 out of 10 people who mostly thought the police already had access to Tf L's ANPR cameras were in favour of a policy that would allow their somewhat inaccurate view of reality to become more accurate.
When Johnson was re-elected in May 2012 he did get a free gift, the job of Police and Crime Commissioner for London which now comes as an added extra to the mayoral job.
Johnson palmed the job off immediately (via delegation of powers) to his deputy, Stephen Greenhalgh.
Liberty was at the heart of the constitution, that is to say that the importance of liberty to the way of life in England went before the laws and the laws were built upon that foundation.
Now the constitution is considered merely a dry academic topic and the spirit of liberty is all but forgotten.
