The Great Tory Train Robbery

"Dear Colleague, will you join me on Friday 4 October to campaign against the Great Tory Train Robbery?  Please click here to register and I will put you in touch with activity near you.

Over the last few weeks I have been campaigning against the Tory Mayor’s plans to hike fares above inflation and close every TFL ticket office in London. So far I’ve campaigned in Barnet, Brent, Camden, Southwark, Croydon and Tooting.

There was more coverage of our campaign in the Evening Standard yesterday, but we need to keep the pressure on the Tory Mayor if we are to persuade him to freeze fares next year.

We are holding a London-wide weekend of action on the 4th, 5th and 6th of October. We will be leafleting tube stations in London and holding street stalls in all parts of the city.

Will you join us? Click here to register.

In the middle of a cost-of-living crisis, Londoners simply cannot afford another inflation busting hike to the cost of commuting, especially while the Mayor is closing ticket offices – making commuting more difficult less safe and costing thousands of jobs.

I hope to see you there,

Sadiq Khan
Shadow London Minister
