    From what I gathered on twitter, so could be wrong don't start yelling, he has froze oyster/contactless fares for four years, however due to the nature of travelcards they do not come under the power of the mayor but rather the Department of Transport, meaning he can't freeze travelcards directly, so is lobbying the DoT to freeze them for him
    That is what I read. Presumably the Tories will deliberately increase travel card prices to spite this.

    Interesting talking to my taxi driver tonight. He's a remainer but very concerned about Turkey joining in future (he's from Pakistan or India) because they are poor and rough.

    You overestimate the benevolence of society. Do you really think the dictators didn't realise the pain they were causing?
    No but they don't feel the pain themselves.

    Great to see Tory MP Dr Sarah Wollaston switch from leave to remain after calling out the leave campaign for their bs about leaving being good for the NHS and the fake £350 million figure.

    Meanwhile you now have Andrew Sked of UKIP comparing the remain camps to Nazis.

    Hollow as you like though, no Tory genuinely cares about the health service.

    Indeed. It was utterly cringeworthy to see Boris johnson giving a speech with a 'save the NHS' placard behind him.

    People rarely bet on themselves doing something without a strong reason to believe they can do whatever it is.

    To be honest, I genuinely think he didn't think he could do it... He was incredibly surprised when he finished it, but as he's pretty skint, I think the need for some cash overrode any worries he had about doing it xD
