New Year, Same Old Ken

George,

Of course they have. This was the only way to cope with decreasing government grant without stopping the current Tube investment plans. Livingstone consistently raised fares above inflation in a much more benign government grant environment in spite of pledging not to. His pre-election Oyster bus fare cut in 2008 was a just a trick. He would have had to unwind it himself if he had got back in. Thankfully he didn’t but Boris Johnson had to fill the budget hole left for him by “generous” Livingstone.
