Lib Dem's Economic Spokesman is Economic with the Facts

Someone in Twickenham reads their Lib Dem focus. They were surprised to learn of a new appointment for Geoff Pope, a Lib Dem Assembly Member. I decided to check focus 'facts' with the Mayor:

Roger Evans: A recent publication by the Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesman, Vince Cable MP stated that Geoff Pope 'sits on the board of Transport for London'. Can you confirm when this appointment was made?

Ken Livingstone: Geoff Pope is not, and has never been, a member of the TfL Board.

Let's hope Vince is more careful with his figures than he is with his facts....
