Over £17 million (and counting) – scrapping Venezuelan oil deal.
Over £100 million (estimated) – designing and implementing a replacement for high-capacity bendy buses with lower capacity buses.
£30 – £60 million – protecting the worst polluting cars from a £25 congestion charge.
£400,000 – paying off Porsche for the privilege of doing so.
£465,000 – a ‘transition team’.
…and Money In (from your fares)
Bus fares up from 90p to £1, with the daily cap rising from £3 to £3.30. (More expensive than Birmingham.) An on-peak Tube journey in Zone 1 up from £1.50 to £1.60, and £2.00 to £2.20 in Zones 1 and 2. There is some good news: the off-peak period on the Tube is expanded to include the time between 9.30 and 16.00, and he’s reintroducing the half-price bus travel scheme for those on Income Support which he originally scrapped. But essentially, under Boris you’re a winner if you drive a Porsche, work for Boris or make buses for nostalgics. (Hint: if you’re not one of those, you’re probably a loser.)
