    You seriously think that only two weeks in will cause a dramatic turn around?

    If you really think that knife crime is solely the Mayors fault then you should blame Ken for 8 years of allowing it to get to this.

    He has chairmanship of Jarvis, an engineering group responsible for rail maintenance. They accepted liability, along with Network Rail, for the Potters Bar crash, it's all in the link.

    If Johnson goes ahead with this appointment it'll be an absolute disgrace.

    Yeah realised that after posting...and yep it will be. Surprised Team Boris are allowing this given their acute pr antennae. Wonder if anything will be made of this media wise?

    Paulie Tandoori shut it you egg!

    tbh, as much as they're all a bunch of cunts, at least he does have some previous experience of transport.

    altho you'd have thought that his track record may have precluded him from such a role......

    sorry, i'll get my coat.....

    I recall Jeremy Hardy once quipping that the likes of Jarvis applied the phrase "paper over the cracks" quite literally to their maintenance work.

    ? seriously don't think a white Old Etonian is going to crack black on black n ife crime, no.

    The difference is, Boris promised he would. Ken knew it went deeper than more cops and metal detctors. Boris has made a rod for his own back.

    Jarvis? They of liability for the Potter's Bar crash? The lying fuckers who tried to blame it on vandals at first?

    corporate whore oh, thought you were dead

    The new Private Eye tells me Johnson has recuited three people from Westminster City Council.

    Can't remember the names right now, but the guy in charge of housing policy is one of the people who, in 1989, voted to house the homeless in asbestos-ridden accomodation.

    Another day another back peddle on things Bojo said to get elected:

    Boris Johnson: Routemasters may never be built

    Tbh, it sends out the wrong message: all youth are to be treated as potential criminals. The solution to this is to use a former prison governor to formulate a 'youth policy'. It's a little like getting Rosemary West to advise on family matters.
