I think to ascribe always as meaning sine die in the context of an election for a limited term is far too rigid, in context of an election campaign, it surely means throughout the term. Johnson doesn't mention ticket offices in his 2012 manifesto, even when attacking Ken Livingstone, so it was hardly something he still thought was an important differentiating factor. Therefore he hasn't in my view broken a pledge and it seems a pretty sensible decision with the realities of oyster usage.
What Boris Jonson isn't telling you about the ticket staff on the Underground

I'm not arguing, I'm not goading - I'm simply calling Ernie out on being a hypocrite, because he always applies double standards with Boris threads
I am highly critical of Johnson I think he is a self-serving politician who doesn't give a toss about ordinary Londoners, and why would he ? I am also critical of Livingstone, that's why he wasn't my first choice in the last mayoral election (my first choice was Jenny Jones) But I do think that despite being something of a careerist himself Livingstone does have genuine commitment to ordinary Londoners, and for that reason is a better choice than Johnson.
The real hypocrisy comes from you Z-11. In all the multitude of political comments you have posted on this forum, not once, not on one single occasion, do I recall you criticising a Tory politician. They, and they alone, are above criticism ..... according to you. Whatever they do.
And on everything single thread which is about Boris Johnson you deviate the thread onto Ken Livingstone, to protect him. I in contrast don't deviate threads about Livingstone (of which there has been many) onto Boris Johnson.

Not even you are that unaware ....chuckles

I agree with what ernie said about hypocrisy and double standards
criticising people in the process like he has above with Mefty.
Your defence of the weak and powerless is one of your strengths
And with that, I'm out!
You will be missed
