It would appear that in a bout of self inflicted foot shooting, Ken has killed off any chances of being elected Mayor, by being a tad economical with the facts, surrounding his tax affairs. He has also managed to further paint himself into a corner by thinking that Boris had something to hide and would refuse to disclose, when he didn't. WATCH: Cocky Ken Promises to Publish - Guy Fawkes' blog From the times paywall site. Extract used as fair comment, if needs be Mods please removed "Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, took the rare step today of releasing his personal accounts for the past four years to show that he had paid full tax on earnings of just under £1.7 million. Mr Johnson campaign team published a letter sent to him by his accountants, Begbies, confirming that he earned a total of £473,280 last year and paid tax and National Insurance of £213,749. The figures show that Mr Johnson, who has a weekly column in The Daily Telegraph and is also a successful author, earns more than £300,000 a year on top of the £130,000 a year he earns as Mayor. Altogether, over the four-year period, he earned £1,699,257 and paid tax and NI of £684,719."
