Bendy buses: Ken concedes

It’s nearly two years since I called for Ken Livingstone to abandon plans for any more bendy buses. Why? Because bendy buses are dangerous, crime-ridden, and take up far too much space on Islington’s streets. Since then our campaign website has had lots of support from people all over London. So I’m delighted that Ken has now backed down and conceded that there will be no new bendy bus routes.

Now we need him to start replacing the existing bendy buses with modern double-deckers. And in the meantime, let’s have conductors back on the bendy buses to make them safer and tackle the fare dodgers. Who knows, maybe in a few weeks time, Ken will be glad of a conductor’s job himself…
