Night Mayor

Dear Ken

I know you love public transport, but have you taken a nightbus recently? Obviously not, 'cos you still haven't armed the police.

Trying to buy a ticket last night outside Tottenham Court Road was horrible. The touts have got worse - it's like a nasty version of Delhi. I put out an arm to try and prevent one from gripping my friend Samantha's shoulder - and was grabbed, shoved into a doorway, and had fists in my face.

Surely it's possible to buy a bus ticket without being physically attacked, screamed at and spat over?

PS: And no, I don't fancy the Olympics much.
