Yahoo reports that the alcohol ban may find opposition. Bob Crow of the RTM transport union is wary of the risk of violence towards staff if they try to enforce the rules with drunk passengers.

“”We are in favour of any measure that will make our members’ lives safer and curb anti-social behaviour, but it appears that this really hasn’t been thought through very well and could well make matters worse,” he said.

“Perhaps the mayor will come out with his underpants on over his trousers like Superman one Saturday to show us how it should be done.””

The RMT, with Mr Crow at the helm, was such a thorn in the side of Ken Livingstone that he was moved to conclude that he couldn’t “explain the mindset” of the union. It seems that Boris may have similar battles ahead.
