It would be interesting to know if the Mayor had considered how much this will add to the average London household’s weekly bill and if he balanced those calculations against his decision to:
- Lose £50million by abandoning the £25 gas guzzler charge
- Cost Londoners £30million by replacing bendy buses with the lower capacity single and double deckers
- Lose significant sums designing a new bus
- Cancelling the cheap fuel contract
I am writing to TfL to ask about the Mayor's further cuts in tube and bus services and will report more later on. As for the police and crime fighting budget: I understand that the Mayor is reviewing these and I will let you know the consequences for residents of Hammersmith and Fulham when I have more details.
