It's obviously in the nature of oppositions to oppose but I'm left wondering whether the Conservatives would be happier if Crossrail wasn't built because it would allow them to attack you for perceived under-performance. So, the Labour position on this is that we desperately want to see Crossrail built and we want to see the East London Line built and we think that there is an opportunity in the delay on Thameslink to engineer it - and I think this is what you're saying - so that it better suits the interests of Londoners. We want to work with you to secure those outputs.
Just in case you walk away thinking I'm now your greatest friend, there is an area where we think you could do better which is about working with the National Rail system in London more widely. My colleague, Samantha Heath, will come back on aspects of the East London Line and Thameslink. The question is whether you've really done enough in your Transport Strategy and with your transport budget to promote the heavy rail system, particularly in south London. There's been a lot of focus on the Tube and on the buses; in south London you've got a little pilot on the South London Metro and could have done a lot more to integrate stations, to improve interchanges, to get a turn up and go service on a wider range of stations in south London. Have you done enough on the National Rail system in London and, given our great support for you in other areas, what can we do to encourage you to do more in that area?
