F ive mon t h s a g o I a n Clement, 44, was one of the most powerful political fig- ures in London. He had a 127,000 salary, flew around the world helping plan the 2012 Olympics and repre- sented the capital at a 9/11 memorial in New York. But in a sharp fall from grace, he is now completing 100 hours of community serv- ice and living with a sus- pended 12-week prison sentence, a 9pm curfew and an electronic tag. He is pictured helping refur- bish lavatories and changing rooms at King Georges play- ing fields in Sidcup, Kent. A friend today said Clement is totally destroyed by the conviction. Clement, a former Bexley councillor, pleaded guilty to three counts of fraud by false representation last month after using his City Hall credit card to entertain his partner and another woman. Clement was first suspected of impropriety last November when he started sending cheques to City Hall to cover personal spending he had made on his work credit card. He initially used it to upgrade tickets for himself and a col- league on a flight to the Beijing Olympics. Clement then ignored a series of warnings and continued to use the card for more than 2,300 of personal spending, racking up 7,000 in bills. A close friend of Clement today said he was completing his punishment without com- plaint but believes his behav- iour was not as bad as some of the expenses claims by M P s t h a t a r e b e i n g investigated. by kevin widdop Careerdownthetoilet:Clementworksonthelooblock Hardwork:theMayorsformerdeputy age could prevent him from recovering quickly. He recently admitted he had to spend Sundays in bed to recover from the two- hour Strictly Come Dancing live show the night before. He said: I cant stay asleep because the adrenaline of doing a live show is still pumping round my body. Bruces manager Ian Wilson said: The doctor advised him to get some rest and get better properly so he is fit enough to do the rest of the series. I will be gobsmacked if he is not back on full form presenting Strictly next week.
