Ken’s £319,478 of Chicken Feed

If Ken’s twitter “lines to take” sheet was leaked, Guido would wager this week’s focus is on Boris being a “part time” Mayor. Time and again his cronies and activists have mentioned the 900 words Boris bangs out for the Telegraph for some £250,000-a-year as evidence that he’s not pulling his weight. Even his biographer Sonia Purnell, who didn’t pull her punches in Just Boris“, says BoJo is anything but lazy.

On the surface it would seem that Ken has spent the last four years doing nothing much except sit in the public gallery at City Hall. However a quick delve into the records of Silveta Limited, which he runs with his latest wife Emma Beal, shows he’s hardly one to talk about outside interests. Ken’s last filed set of accounts show a far from chicken feed £319,478 sitting in the bank.

Not that hypocrisy has ever really bothered Ken…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
