It seems another thing touched and named Boris buses has turned into another disasterMeanwhile, thanks to @BorisJohnson, London Transport is saddled with a thousand of ageing-but-unsellable Wrightbus products. What makes the Boris Boggler so incredible is the UK still has the world's most successful double-decker bus maker in Alexander Dennis.
I'd suggest any scandal involving presbyterian sects is trivial, compared to the stitch-up involving:
and ... not forgetting ...
- Politics Exchange (the d'uh! think-tank behind Cameron/early Johnson etc);
- Johnson himself, and his manipulation of the London Transport budget (not just the mobile sauna, but the 'Boris bikes', the Greenwich dangle-wire, and the sub to Joanna Lumley's folly of the Garden Bridge);
- his strange relationship with Thomas Heatherwick (never ask a 'designer' to do the job of a specialist engineer);
Christian Wolmar reckoned Johnson's vanity froth cost Londoners at least £600 million.
- the ever-pliant Tory media.
