Christian Wolmar, on Boris, in the Guardian today:

He genuinely supports cycling, but does not realise that in order to make London a cycle-friendly city, cars and other motorised vehicles have to be made to run more slowly and at times be inconvenienced. There is a deeper ideological root to these difficulties. Tories have traditionally favoured private transport over public, but in London no such policy is feasible. Johnson will have to continue to pour millions into buses and trains because otherwise the capital will grind to a halt, and he knows it.

First comment:

Don’t care. As long as he brings the Routemaster back.

They’re still out there, boys and girls.  In every sense.
