Air Quality and Boris Johnson

Dave Hill gives us an update on Boris Johnson's evasions over poor air quality.  Brent's air quality has actually improved over the past few years.  This is largely down to transport and planning policies that promote virtually any form of transport other than the car.  Boris Johnson's programme of hiking public transport fares by eye watering amounts seem to go in the opposite direction.  Meanwhile, he engages in subterfuges of the kind Dave Hill describes to avoid confronting the problem.  That may work for Boris Johnson as a short term political fix, but just allows poor quality to persist and thousands of Londoners to die or fall ill unnecessarily.
