London Needs Ken

Compare Ken’s response to the 7/7 bombings to the Boris response to the London riots.

London needs a serious Mayor for serious times who can provide leadership. Not Boris, who is too preoccupied with his main job as a columnist for the Daily Telegraph and has no time to be an effective Mayor for London – and does not care enough to cut his luxury holiday short to fulfil his duty as Mayor of London to provide assurance to the City after major events such as the riots last summer.

Vote Ken Livingstone for a real leader for London!

Time for the excuses to stop – Boris Johnson needs to get a grip on the Jubilee Line

New figures published by TfL (Transport for London) have shown a further decline in tube services under Boris Johnson with overall delays up by 16% across the underground network.

Dudden Hill residents mainly commute using Jubilee Line underground stations as this formerly well run service is the only tube line permanently stopping at Willesden Green, Dollis Hill and Neasden underground station.

The latest TfL figures show in the last year, from March 2010 to March 2011, show delays on the Jubilee Line Jubilee line are up 120%!!!!!

The figures come from TfL’s own website: LINK (click on the delays tab).

As tube delays have increased in the past year, Boris Johnson has made excuse after excuse. In February this year he blamed Transport for London (the organisation he chairs), in March he tried to blame it on strikes and then in April he even tried to shift the blame on to the statistics rather than accept responsibility.

Boris must be held accountable to the misery he has caused to tube passengers.

EXCLUSIVE: The final set of weekend closures for the northern section of the Jubilee Line will be between Sunday 15th May and Sunday 26th June

Transport for London has revealed that the final set of weekend closures will take place between Sunday 15 May and Sunday 26 June.

We were promised that the works would be completed first of all last year and then by Spring 2011. However, it seems that Spring will be arriving later than usual this year, with the works now expected to be completed at the end of June.

It is however a huge relief that it look like the line will be running in time for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, but I am hugely disappointed that Dudden Hill residents have had to endure years of no Jubilee Line service at weekends from Willesden Green, Dollis Hill and Neasden Station.
