The Mayor of London has launched a half-price bus and tram travel scheme for people on income support - so if you're eligible, then make sure you make the most of it. It means that with an Oyster card you will get a bus journey for 50p.
Cynics might point out that it's yet another push to get everyone onto identity, ooops, sorry, Oyster cards, whether they want one or not. They might wonder how many of those eligible will actually take up the offer or if it's just a very cheap way of getting publicity for Ken ahead of the elections next May. They might ask the question as to why, if Ken feels strongly about this, it applies only to buses and not the tube.
But let's just celebrate the Mayor's generosity instead.
