Boris Johnson today revealed the first draft of his draft Transport Strategy, to be later re-drafted again, before the final draft is re-drafted in the drafty winter of next year.
Ordinarily today would be a day to bury bad news, but for Boris this appears to be a day to bury non news. That is, the non news which is his revised transport plans.
There's a fair amount of dog-whistling in there of course. Talk about the 'persecution' and 'oppression' of motorists, and the 'vindictive' £25 congestion charge.
There are also the obligatory Borisisms about 'beached' whale buses, 'sheep-dip-style railings' and 'scud' missile-style pot holes.
Hide and Seek
But whereas your ordinary shepherd would stand at the brink of the hill and wait for the dogs to run to his whistle, our own shepherd is intent on leaping into the nearest hedge.
So while he speaks in one breath about the "unconscionable" length of traffic light phasings, in the next breath he praises "the pedestrian-friendly phasing of the traffic lights."
And while he praises at one turn the huge increase in bus use, at the next he criticises the saturation of London's roads by those same buses.
So this is not so much the Blairite-style triangulation described by Tony Travers, as the Borisite-style political incoherence described by Christian Wolmar.
Now as far as actions are concerned, Boris's first few months have seen clear reversals in the drive to shift people from cars to public transport.
New transport infrastructure plans have been filed away, and motorists have been let loose.
But when it comes to selling that to the people, Boris is unsure whether to pose as Ken or as 'Kennite' and whether to scrap Peter Hendy or the Bendies.
Let's hope he works out his identity crisis before he is forced to draft the final transport draft next year.
