Who's the goat then?

Fare's fair? (sorry a pun worthy of Geoff)

In the Standard last night and in Metro this morning it was announced that we're going to face above inflation fare rises on the Tube and buses. This is despite a certain person claiming that fares would be fixed at the rate of inflation for the next four years.

Lynne Featherstone chairman of the London Assembly's transport committee (we like Lynnne she replied to my small campaign about security issues
last year) said:

"The failure to tackle the transport funding black hole shows that leaving XXXXX to manage a budget is like leaving a goat to tend the cabbages".

Nice one Lynne, and no real prizes for guessing who XXXXX is.
