Mayor of London again shows he doesn’t understand the problems

The London Assembly questioned the Mayor, Boris Johnson about cycle safety earlier this week. You can see some of the session on the clip above where Green Party mayoral candidate Jenny Jones asks some very sensible and well-informed questions.

Describing his lack of faith in junction redesign, the Mayor said in the London Assembly, “If we can do anything ameliorate the junction you describe; if that would really address the problem, then of course we’ll look at it. But sometimes, I don’t think that interventions… that physical streetworks are the answer.”

At 2.47 minutes into this clip, the Mayor talks about how it “grieves me to see the way that [Transport for London] is blamed” when there are cycling accidents.  You what!  Yes, he grieves for Transport for London.  Not for the dead cyclists but for his transport authority!
