Sadiq Shamelessly Spinning Broken Fares Promise

smily-sadiq-3

Sadiq Khan is getting a lot of positive headlines today after he “formally confirmed” he would “freeze fares across the Transport for London network”, he says in line with his manifesto promise. This is a really shamelessly misleading distortion of the truth. Fares are not being frozen for travel cards and daily and weekly caps, which are expected to rise. Commuters, the people who use the tube most, are the ones Khan was targeting with his manifesto pledge to freeze fares. They use travel cards so their fares will not be frozen. Remember, Khan told Londoners they would “not pay a penny more” if he won. That is demonstrably untrue. Make no mistake, this is a broken promise on the scale of Nick Clegg and tuition fees.
