Alleged Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson could not have put it more directly: “I would remind you of the commitment you made, when you became Leader of the Opposition, to work constructively with the Government, in the face of this unprecedented pandemic. The public expect us to work together”. Thus his words to Labour leader Keir Starmer after the latter had caught him lying to the Commons.reported “Transport for London (TfL) has secured £1.6bn in emergency funding to keep Tube and bus services running until September. Under the bailout's terms, London mayor Sadiq Khan is expected to restore a full Underground service as soon as possible”.added that “the transport secretary, Grant Shapps, said Londoners would eventually need to pay higher fares to help finance TfL. Shapps said the government did not want ‘a situation where people outside of the capital are unfairly carrying the burden, by which I mean, sadly, fares do end having to rise with inflation’”. Boo fare freeze!as they jeered “LONDON Mayor Sadiq Khan crumbled yesterday after he handed significant control of the capital’s transport system to the Government in exchange for a £1.6billion bailout.” Yeah, rotten lefty! Yah boo you lost!
Playing politics with the Covid-19 crisis? Fine, so long as Bozo wins. Same old Tories.
