While Livingstone is scrabbling around signing up Labour members to his latest chain letter, Boris has been thinking about ways to improve London’s transport.
Livingstone will be blissfully unaware that traveling around suburban London is a nightmare, if he ever bothered to venture out of zone 1 he might realise. Boris on the other hand, has visited Bexley and Bromley more times in the last 8 months than Livingstone has in the last 8 years.
And because he has listened to commuters on those visits, he has come up with a proposal to help people move around outer London without having to rely on their cars. By linking major outer London town centers with a fast bus service, people will be able go from Bexley to Bromley or from Bromley to Croydon without having to fight their way into central London.
There is more to transport policy than taxing cars!
