I am very happy to enter into `nasty coalitions', as you put them, that achieve results for Londoners. This is certainly an idea that has merit, so I will certainly take up that offer which is why we have been doing the work. Are you prepared to work with the necessary commercial partners to make this possible? You will be aware that obviously with the Oyster, while it is, as it were, a brand of TfL, it is a commercial partnership that runs it, and that any scheme that had a wider applicability than the pure transport aspects would need to involve a whole range of retailers including the big ones who run their own schemes at present.

I am absolutely committed to that. We have got the deal with a major bank to just use it for small payments without having to check. As long as it is not some dreadful arms manufacturer or something, we would be quite happy.
