Quite..an entirely self-serving and unpleasant hypocrite.

Its just a shame Khan can't do another 4 years, be worth it just to see the frothing and rage on here
Yep - you can also speak with Amir Khan for his view. Violent street crime is up 20% under Sadiq's reign.

Just seen a report that the tt is trying to do away with one day travel cards for people coming into London for a day.

Anyone know if there is any truth in it? As an occasional visitor to London I really dont want a bloody Oyster card - yet another piece of plastic to carry around.

You don't have to, but don't let the facts hit you on the ass though...

You use contactless debit cards like everyone else but the max cost is capped at the one day travelcard price.

There's a consultation running for another few weeks. Got an opinion, make your voice heard.

No it was NOT
The ULEZ to the North & South cirular roads was in his manifesto. The reason for now the change to the whole Greater London boundary, because it flopped and did not generate the money they expected from the North & South circular roads. People changed cars, some used dodgy methods to by-pass the fine and still drive in.
It is nothing about the emissions (more a smoke screen) no pun intended; all to do with revenue raising.

Do you not just enter your numberplate and duration in the machine/app and then just pay the amount? Or do so upon leaving?

Rather than face accusations of "secret" pricing they've made it public for everyone.

I'm sure in time CO2 emissions will be replaced by weight. That way 3.5 ton 100kWh SUV will pay more than a 1.3t 40kWh electric car.

In a previous role I had to deal with TfL and Labour run Greenwich council planners. One of the conversations I had with a senior Greenwich official has always stuck with me and really frames how the planners and operators think about cars in London.

They see cars as a transport option that is far too cheap, relative to mass transit.

They see cars as an underpriced transport mode when considered for the space that they take up, the emissions they produce, the cost of management and infrastructure, and the time lost through congestion.

This group thinking is endemic amongst councils and central government, and they expect every one of their employees to subscribe to this.

ULEZ is one tool in all the things they would like to deploy to make motoring ‘the right price’.

The interesting thing will be the next mayoral election then.

Mayor steps beyond his manifesto, will face an opponent explicitly committed (and likely to be campaigning as their number one issue) to overturning it.

Khan still 1/4 favourite as it stands...

This means that Khan is four to one ON to win.

So, you need to place £4 in order to win £1.

Hasn't stopped the other side moaning though in either case.

Too polluted down there, worse than the roads apparently.

Bearing in mind the thread title, polling from The Times suggests Jeremy Corbyn could manage it.

Patrick Maguire, Times Columnist
@patrickkmaguire

Jeremy Corbyn would deny Sadiq Khan a third term if he runs for London mayor next year, new polling suggests

Without Corbyn, Khan beats Hall 33 per cent to 32 per cent

When included, JC polls 15 per cent - Khan 25 per cent, Hall 30 per cent

Hear more on
