    But look on the bright side, at least Boris Johnson pulled out early. If Stanley Johnson had done the same, we wouldn't be in the mess we are all in now.

    Rish!

There is no planet on which any of this is democratic.

    New budget just dropped:

    28.5m reduced spend on bus replacement and active travel. No further breakdown

    7.2m reduced spend on roads and taxis, largely because spending the money they have is hard due to supply chain issues.

    Priorities eh...
