We have not seen much on this topic from Livingstone in the past eight years so it is interesting to see the Mayor respond to Boris Johnson’s call for greater civility – he raised this issue at his campaign launch on September 3rd, see previous posting.
Too often politicians are wary of taking on board this kind of issue. They worry that the people they chastise will not vote for them. Maybe the Mayor has calculated that on average the people who mess the place up will either not be registered to vote or will not bother to vote anyway whilst the rest of us far outnumber the idiots. If so he is right.
See the Mayor’s little movie here. The movie does not show teenagers bad mouthing drivers when they challenge them to show their free passes so it is a little fanciful.
