The Mayor


Mr Mayor, last night, this subject was debated at length at Barnet Council. Having listened to the sensible arguments made, not least in my own speech, Liberal Democrat members of Barnet Council voted with the Conservative Members and against a Labour motion. Would you not say that is a sign that there are Liberal Democrats in London who understand this issue and understand the points that you make?

I am fascinated by what you say. The current Coalition Government is obviously evidence that every Liberal Democrat is capable of commonsense from time to time and things can work. I think it would be interesting for Caroline and Mike if they could perhaps have a word with your Liberal Democrat colleagues on Barnet Council to discover why they agreed with us in promoting what I think is a sensible reform that is in the best interests of the London travelling public and of London Underground.
