Livingstone is gone. Boris the bore is in. Let the banning begin!
Number one: No more booze on the tubes.
Born with the ban is one big problem:
Labour’s London assembly transport spokeswoman, Val Shawcross, said: “There is a broad consensus of support for a public-transport alcohol ban but it will be extremely difficult to enforce.
“If the mayor is expecting tube and bus staff to confiscate people’s drinks then they are effectively being forced into a policing role for which they are not trained.
“We need to get any ban right and not compromise the safety of staff and passengers. It does not bode well that the new mayor has jumped ahead with this pledge without first talking to those who are being asked to police it.”
