Another above-inflation fare increase from Boris Johnson

7 November 2012

Commenting on the above-inflation 4.2% rise in Transport for London fares, TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes said: "Boris deserves a Gold Medal in cynicism."

"Not only does he try to bury bad news on the back of Obama's victory, he also jacks up fares at twice the rate of inflation.

He continued, "He also manages to break two election pledges into the bargain, by hiking charges for bikes as well as inflation busting fare increases. He is the Pinnochio of British politics."
