Boris Johnson - My Fake Diary

Foreign diplomats to London owe £58 million in motoring fees!
64 diplomatic missions total owe congestion charges. The worst offenders are US diplomats, who have accumulated 54,156 fines worth more than £6 million. The country has long maintained that diplomatic immunity exempts it from paying congestion charges. Russians and Japanese are the second worst offenders, with over £4 million owed from each in unpaid motoring fees. Diplomats from Germany are the third worst, owing more than £3 million.
I gave it to US President Barack Obama over the phone the other day - telling him how wrong it was for him not to pay charges others have to, questioned his honesty and integrity, threatened him with sanctions and even worse if they were not paid - then realised he's rang off!
