Manuel Cortes defends Londons free pensioner travel from "nasty" Tory Mayoral candidate

10 October 2018

Responding to news that London's latest Tory Mayor wannabe, Shaun Bailey, wants to slash free travel for London pensioners and scrap discounted bus fates, transport union boss, Manuel Cortes said

"Bring it on Shaun. Your Manifesto for London is already a pile of nasty Tory bile. After turning on our capital's pensioners, what's next on the transport front....taxing baby buggies, slapping a charge on kids for having stabilisers on their bikes or wheel chair users in transit? Blue sky Tory thinking is not hard. Just plain nasty. And Bailey has got off to the nastiest of political campaign starts.

"If the Tories will pick a fight with defenceless pensioners, they have lost the right to even get into the political ring. Keeping Londoners safe means keeping the Tories at the gate. Voting Sadiq for a second term at City Hall."
