In a victory for good old British uncommon sense and no-nonsense political incorrectness, Boris Johnson has fulfilled his promise to bring back the Routemaster.
*Once somebody redesigns one*
*And builds it*
*At some point in the future*
The winning designs will be put out to tender, whereupon they will be redesigned 'pic n mix' style in order to get the minimum possible capacity, at the greatest possible cost.
All further bleatings from the politically correct naysayers/ Ken Livingstone munchkins/ commuters who want cheap and convenient travel, should be roundly ignored.
For today is a day to join hands and rejoice in the great wisdom of our new Mayor and the great shiny shinyness of his ever-so-shiny new toy.
