    8 pounds is cheap. We need more money for public transport. I would suggest 10 pounds, at least.
    That £8 is just for "admin". The total charge is £254.62. Here's how it roughly breaks down:

    £196 - police
    £44 - fire brigade
    £8 - Red Ken "admin" charge
    £7 - transport

    Does Ken ride through London on a giant crested newt?

    The basis for the price rise was to remove more cars from the roads. Why didn't he jack it up to £100. Surely that would have removed many more cars from the roads than a measly £3 rise.

    Do you know that Londoners each pay three times as much for Ken Livingstone as they pay for the royal family?

    I hope they feel they are getting value for money.
    No

    That is a massive underestimate, Stackers. The BBC a couple of weeks ago reported that the Royal Family cost me 61p per year. My council tax bill of a couple of months ago tells me that my GLA Mayoral surcharge is £254.62 per year (of which £8 per year is for the "running and administration of the GLA"). So, on kindest estimate, it's costing me ca. 13 times more than the Royals.
