Boris Johnson breaks another election promise

From Beth Lister on Comment is Free comes news of another example of Boris Johnson making election promises and then breaking them.

This time, it is to do with Rape Crisis Centres:

These centres provide long-term counselling and specialist care to women who have been affected by sexual violence. Having previously promised to spend £744,000, financed by a 20% cut in the mayor’s media and marketing team, Johnson now promises just £233,000. This is not even enough to keep the capital’s one existing centre open, let alone fund four more.
