Kulveer Ranger was recently less than complimentary towards transport commentator Christian Wolmar. This might explain Wolmar’s determination to insert boot into Ranger’s boss, Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, mayor of London. But he’d be justified in doing so anyway.
Wolmar has picked up on Johnson’s hare brained scheme to rid the capital of bendy buses, and he’s not happy about it. There is good reason for this: Wolmar is a regular user of the things, and has realised that his journeys are going to get a lot slower as they are replaced by double deckers.
Christian Wolmar isn’t a slavish adherent to one or other political party: his priority is better transport. But as I observed recently, Bozza can’t get his head around a consistent approach to such things. For independent commentators to round on a party after it’s won a General Election and been in power for a while is one thing – to not have such folk on side beforehand should be worrying Young Dave.
That is, of course, if he’s listening.
