In the harsh, unforgiving world of private enterprise the price of failure is a hard boot up the backside, but not in the weird world of Boris Johnson.....
Danny 'Boys' Moylan has screwed up every job he has ever been given.
It took just a few months for the other member of the Olympic Legacy committee to ease him out and the word is that as Aviation Adviser he alienated most of the MP's and other influencers he attempted to lobby.
But his new appointment 'overseeing' the Second Crossrail scheme is all about income replacement and the curious hold he has over the Mayor.
Then are other scraps such as his £11,000 a year for being an absentee councillor on K&C....all in all around £150,000 a year. And we must not forget the c £30,000 he gets as non exec of the two failed property trusts.
Not bad for a man who failed in every job Boris gave him.
But now we need to know what more he is being given in this new job.
The Dame calculates that his income could now be over £190,000 a year!
Who says there is no money being a little local councillor!
