What I do want from you on the bridge is to stop saying that if you do not want it to be six lanes of traffic and you want it to be a tram, which is a much better place to put a tram than the bus way that you are proposing - if you do not want that, then you are hurting the people of east London, because it is not that no one wants a bridge.
As you have got in the consultation when you asked, 85% of people want a bridge. Of course, they bloody want a bridge " I apologise " but it is the type of bridge and it is the absolute lack of an overarching master plan and vision for that area.
Do you agree that you are actually giving the disadvantaged of that area a bad deal if you simply provide another Dartford Crossing, which this could be? You say `guard against', but your strings are being pulled by someone else now.
