The London Mayor is now using the front page of the Londoner for the third time to highlight his bus fare cuts. As I have pointed out before, see previous posting, this cut cannot be justified by the Mayor in any rational business terms. It is an election bribe fair and square. He is not shy obviously to use his £3 million a year not-so-freesheet to make sure you know BUS FARES HAVE BEEN CUT BY 10%.
On the one hand I am shocked by the Mayor’s use of public funds to get himself re-elected. On the other hand it is so grotesque you have to wonder if it will not be counter-productive.
