Of those of us not busy on Hailo that attended the demo and listened or watched it's extensive press coverage can have failed to miss the quality interviews given to the press.
Amongst them John Kennedy, Paul Bond, Lewis Norton and Steve McNamara gave a good account and spoke well for the trade.
Last but by no means least my good friend Courtney Connell who in his own inimitable style roundly and rightly condemned TfL and put forward that we should be be licensed under the auspices of the Metropolitan Police
Well it can't be a bad move but and it's a great big but, is that just like TfL.
The Met is another political captive of whoever runs City Hall as Mayor and what we do know, is both Livingstone and Johnson have done us no favours.
Some might say no chance, TfL call the shots.
Well when TfL were just London Transport, they didn't run us, did they?
So what's to do?
Well, there's probably only one feasible option and that is to campaign for us to be run by the British Transport Police.
Out of the reach of the Mayor, TfL, it's ineffective board, biased engagement and the crass incompetence of the day to day management from Palestra.
The BTP enjoys a sound reputation of firmness and fairness and untainted as far as can be seen by corruption etc.
Will it happen maybe, maybe not but it's worth a shot and certainly a campaign to support.
Let's print off some stickers stating:
BTP is the place for me.
Let's make it the beginning of the end for TfL!
