TfL takeover of commuter train service is eight years overdue
And so the political chicanery by the public school boys begins.
One Old Etonian Tory, Boris Johnson, this morning handed another Old Etonian Tory, Zac Goldsmith, a parting gift as London Mayor when he announced that Transport for London is to take charge of the capital’s ramshackle commuter train services.
This is just a couple of days after #BackZacAndCrack’s campaign launch was staged in Croydon, organised by another public schoolboy, Gavin Barwell (though he attended a very minor public school, it ought to be said).
During his speech on Tuesday, Goldsmith announced as one of his “action points” were he to be elected as Mayor, “We need to bring suburban rail services under Mayoral control so they’re more like the Overground.”
And this morning, as if by magic, guess what has been announced? It’s almost as if it has been planned this way by Conservative Central Office.
