Is it me or is Ken Livingstone a retard? He announces that gas guzzlers are to be charged £25 a day to enter the congestion zone, he then announces that all small businesses that need vans have to pay £100 per day to enter the Greater London Area (also includes, minibuses, ambulances, buses and coaches).
The deluded twat then announces that a London Bus is to be driven from London to Beijing. Without any passengers on board. As the crow flies that is a journey of over 5,000 miles, by road I guess you can probably double that. this is being sold to the public as a lifetime opportunity for 12 Bus Drivers. However, seeing as even the latest, greenest buses that London has deliver about 4 miles to the gallon (on a run, even worse in traffic). So even using his cheaply sourced fuel from Venezuela, and assuming that it is 8,000 miles, that is 2000 gallons of DERV, (approximately 9,000 litres) at a cost of nearly 1.10 per litre. All of this on top of the fact that Beijing suffers from even worse air pollution than London, it would appear that Ken Livingstone is planning on killing as many people (who are not Londoners) as possible. Once more it is a case of don’t do as I do, do as I say.
