Way to go, Boris

Boris Johnson


Trains “packed to the gunwales with perspiring passengers”, traffic lights lingering for an “unconscionable time in red”, new tubes “designed like gigantic worms”, buses like a “queue of expiring whales” (when they are not “chuntering and roaring around”) and a “holy war against holey streets”.

You’ve got to give it to Boris Johnson, his new transport document, Way to Go!, is at least an entertaining read (even if it's been dismissed as utter drivel).

He says he wants all Londoners to have the information they need, when they need it – including travel on foot. He says that if it is quicker to walk…you need to know. He says his ambition is to help people out of their cars by persuasion, not persecution, by helping them recognise that there are cleaner, greener, cheaper and more efficient alternatives.

Well Boris, we’re here to help. We’ve been doing a lot of this for over 2 years now.

So we’re expecting to be clasped by the warm embrace of Boris’ bosom any minute now…

    I think Boris would make a wonderful guest blogger!
