I am interested to hear that you agreed with Sir Peter Hendy because, as well as a colourful metaphor, as you call it, he made some very clear analytical factual statements. One was that the growth in bus demand has far outstripped the mileage because we have not had the money. Another was that he talked about people on low pay and said, “A future mayor is going to have to make sure they can afford to get to work”.
Do you not think, Mr Mayor, that this is actually quite a serious indictment of your treatment of bus passengers in this city? They have had a particularly poor deal under your mayoralty.
