Darren Johnson (AM): On ticket office closures, is it not the case that there is not a shred of difference between the policies that you are pursuing and the policies that your predecessor Ken Livingstone was pursuing? Ken Livingstone had a plan for closing ticket offices and you have a plan for closing ticket offices. Never have two politicians with identical policies bickered so much over something!
Boris Johnson (Mayor of London): I am delighted you put it that way, my dear cousin Darren, because actually when we listened to Navin you would have thought that he violently disagreed with the policy. I had that impression from his earlier question. Actually, what we are doing is sensible and pragmatic and right. What Labour is now evoking is a neo-Luddite spectre that I think would be extremely damaging to the prospects of Londoners.
Darren Johnson (AM): The policies were wrong under Ken Livingstone and they are wrong under you. Londoners do not want this constant bickering. They actually want to keep the ticket offices open. Why not look at that?
