London’s new open platform double-decker buses upset Labour

by | 16th, December 2011

THE new double-decker buses – the ones with hop-on and off platform – are here. Thank f**k. Is there anyone out there who likes the one-man operated buses? Yep. One. Val Shawcross, Labour’s transport spokesperson on the London Assembly, said:

What London fare payers need to ask themselves is whether spending millions on re-designing buses when we’re on the verge of another recession should really be a priority.”

These would be the same Londoners paying billions for an Olympic Games they can’t get tickets because they’ve gone to the rich bankers the taxpayer saved with billions, Val?

On yer bike…
