So anyway, the big story of the day is that Boris has saved the Thames:
"Boris saves the ThamesThis is what Mayors are for.Boris has returned from his trip to New York to find the Thames has been evaporated in his absence.We reported yesterday how some jobsworths at Transport for London had decided the current Tube map was a bit too "complicated". Unbelievably, they felt that removing the river would be a good idea...Anyway Bojo has saved the day."
Now if Boris has saved the Thames from anybody, it's from himself.
You see when Boris isn't working for Disney, British Airways, or the Evening Standard, he occasionally does his job as Chair of TfL.
And surely at least a small part of that job involves knowing what the body he chairs, finances, and directs, actually does.
"'I'm told that he was amazed at what had been proposed while he was away and has now ordered that the Thames should be reinstated as soon as practicable."
I'm sorry but this wasn't "proposed while he was away."
The new maps were actually installed almost a week ago.
And if even us lowly bloggers knew about that, then shouldn't the Mayor have known as well?
