In a statement he says:
"Londoners are beginning to learn the high cost of Boris Johnson. [He] promised to save Londoners money but instead, after just a few months in office, he is pushing up fares above inflation to pay for his own incredible waste of Londoners' money.
Boris Johnson has lost between £30 and £50 million a year by abandoning the £25 a-day charge on the worst gas guzzlers in the congestion charging zone, he has scrapped the cheap oil deal with Venezuela, costing London £16 million a year, and he may throw away a lot more by abandoning the extension of the congestion charge to Kensington and Chelsea.
This situation is likely to get worse. Experts agree that his pledge to bring in a 'new routemaster' bus would cost over £100 million a year. Londoners are now having to pay through the nose for Boris Johnson's wrong policy decisions and waste."
See, I told you there'd be a row. Clever, eh?
