James said: "He was going from Highbury & Islington to Green Park (presumably for the Jubilee) and at least one person congratulated him and complained about the trains. He was also going to be late as it was 9 when I got off at Green Park. Terrible."
He said: "Perhaps the Mayor will come out with his underpants over his trousers like Superman one Saturday to show us how it should be done, and maybe tell a crowd of Liverpool supporters that they can't drink on the train."
"Our members have never taken strike action at the drop of a hat - the legal constraints we face make that charge laughable.
But it would be insane for us to surrender our democratic right - our human right - to withdraw our labour to defend our interests. Politicians from all sides praised South African dock workers when they refused to handle a Chinese shipment of arms bound for Zimbabwe, but had that happened in Britain the union involved would have been hauled into court.
So, for the new Mayor's benefit, I say this: the RMT wants good industrial relations, but it will never enter into a no-strike agreement."
