Ray Lewis said yesterday he was a magistrate. Boris Johnson repeated this claim. Today it has been revealed he was not and never has been a magistrate.
Yesterday Boris Johnson introduced Ray Lewis as a former prison Governor, yet even in the press conference Mr Lewis admitted, as I understood him to say, that he had never been the governor of a prison and was instead a senior warder who had a grade that was equivalent to that of a certain type of governor.
He also appeared to claim in his press conference that Newham Council continue to fund his school in East London. Reports today suggest this is untrue as well.
Is it me or is he some sort of fantasist ?
Whatever next, will he attempt to pass himself off as the son of Sidney Poitier ?
