Just four days ago the Tories announced proposals for more directly elected Mayors as part of Michael Heseltline's City task force report to David Cameron.
Today the Tories described the role of London Mayor as "The nearest thing we have to a dictator".
So are the Tories just opposed to Mayors of different political parties only ?
Do they propose more directly elected Mayors because they want more dictators ?
Is this a sign of more Tory hypocrisy ?
