Sadiq Khan’s headline manifesto promise was to freeze travel fares. He promised “Londoners won’t pay a penny more for their travel in 2020 than they do today.” This pledge is from his manifesto:

Throughout the campaign Khan dodged any and all questions about how this policy could be funded. And now we know why…

Khan won’t extend the freeze to the travelcards, daily caps and monthly Oyster cards.

He’s broken his number one manifesto promise in his first month. This is a broken promise of Nick Clegg proportions…
