Response to the RMT union strike announcement

Sadiq Khan promised ‘zero days’ of public transport strikes on his watch but just 19 days into his mayoralty he looks to have failed to keep that pledge.

He criticised Boris for failing to placate the unions over the Night Tube, yet with barely one foot through the door of City Hall he has already ensured further disruption to London this summer with news of more strikes.

Sadiq Khan must have been dreaming when he promised he would prevent industrial action by ‘rolling up his sleeves and talking to everyone’. If he’s serious about ending strikes on London’s public transport he should back calls to ban them altogether. If not then Londoners will rightly assume that he’s unwilling to stand up to his union paymasters.

Night Tube announcement: Conservative response

I welcome the fact that two of the five Night Tube lines are to open. However it is disappointing that the Mayor, who had a chance to be magnanimous and thank his predecessor for all the work he did to make the Night Tube happen, has instead chosen to attack him.

Given Sadiq Khan’s union paymasters have already delayed the launch of the Night Tube by 11 months, it’s no surprise that he’s trying to blame Boris Johnson. It’s good news that Londoners will finally see the launch of two lines in August, but we need to know when the remaining lines will finally see twenty-four hour operation and I’ll be seeking assurances that the Mayor won’t be trying to buy off the unions with more of Londoners’ hard-earned money.

Gareth-opinion

I welcome the news that Andrew Travers has left his post following the gross incompetence witnessed at Barnet’s election shambles last week. The way in which thousands of people were disenfranchised was nothing short of disgraceful but I am glad to see he has done the decent thing and fallen on his sword. I’m calling for a cross-party investigation into the fiasco and I will be raising this as a motion at the Assembly’s first AGM on Friday.
