Red Ken has done some good for London. Yes it's a pity that the child rate cuts have to come out of our adult pockets. So walk! Or take the bike! I totally support the congestion charge, as it's supposed to rake in more public transport revenue and helps the environment (or goes a small step towards it). I'd keep him in as Mayor, he is a genuine Londoner who seems to care a lot about the city, unlike some of these plastic MPs...
If your ever in London, just avoid having to buy an adult return or single ticket on the tube. Its an absolute rip - off esp. if your travelling in zone 1. I would say take your chances with the child rate, its worth the risk. Thats why period travelcards are the best deal!
Buses are London are pretty cheap compared to other places though. In Leicester it costs be £1.05 to go 10mins. In London 70p with a saver! Plus with my student LT card it costs about £2 a day to travel anywhere i like between uni and where I live; pretty good going!
Hope Ken comes back to Labour. We need a quick, sharp burst of socialism! The place was beginning to feel like the Tories were around again.
