I've got Excel fired up, got all the numbers in, and working out something. Not sure what yet, but I'll let you know when I do.

There's a little bit of vagueness in the press release - it mentions the new off-peak fare from 0930-1600, but there's no mention of whether it gets cheaper again after 1900. (Any chance you could call the press office and ask them to elucidate, Dave?)

As a shift worker, I think this is basically going to make it harder to work off whether I'm better off getting a travelcard or sticking to pre-pay.

Is there any other information, beyond what is in the press release? Have the budgets, or income/expenditure forecasts, been released? What evidence does Boris have that Ken wasted 80 million pounds? How was that figure calculated?

The information that is in the press release is insufficient to back up Boris' rather shrill claims that it is all the fault of Ken. The press release also mixes up running costs and investment, which is confusing.
