Theres me thinking that the Tories were the more careful as to what they did with our money. Well this is not the case with Boris Johnson's unused water cannon sold for scrap at £300k loss.

But seriously, what went through his mind in buying them without taking advice?

Answer, possibly the real potential for mass civil unrest like if the referendum result is not carried out to the letter.

In 2014?

Boris shoots from the hip, snd in this case he messed up big time. Mind you, he was infintely better as London Mayor than the present version. Sadiq Khan is an absolute disaster in the job - London has gone backwards since he bacame Mayor, despite the grandiose promises he made to the electorate when he ran for office.

He continues to make dramatic claims about the success of his policies, but Londoners know better. The sooner we get a proper mayor the better.

Cameron is looking for a job!

He'll run away as soon as something doesn't go right.

...and Boris goes to ground when things look hostile!

It seemed a reasonable tool to use in the event of mass civil unrest.

As it was, the police stayed indoors and buildings were looted and burnt and innocent people injured.
