Let’s just look through the chain of events shall we?
- Livingstone gives free trips on buses to teenagers, not a traditionally well behaved demographic. This costs money.
- Some teenagers cause havoc and damage on those very same buses, causing distress and costing more money.
- Livingstone decides to put community support officers on the buses, costing more money and probably not solving the problem.
Now, had Livingstone just left things as they were we wouldn’t have had half the trouble or anything like the cost. SNAFU
