…what would you do?
When I was a London commuter I used to spend hours on public transport fantasising about what I would do if I ran the country. Here’s two policies that I reckon any Londoner would vote for:
1. Roadside mounted bazookas that would vaporise any vehicle that blocked a bus lane or red route. Extra vaporising power mode for white vans.
2. Construction of a new underground system. That you would need to pass a test to get on. All the people from out of town who refer to the “yellow line” or “blue line” or anyone carrying an item of luggage, especially a backpack, or anyone who lingers for more than two seconds in front of a tube map is banned from the shiny new, air conditioned system. They can suffer on the old, overheated cattle trucks. Anyone who can pass the test (“Walthamstow to Elephant & Castle, fastest route, minimum changes – GO!”) can be whisked in comfort to their destination.
