bad start

"Boris Johnson, the new London mayor, made his first policy announcement today – banning the consumption of alcohol on all public transport in the capital from June 1.

However, the move immediately drew criticism from transport unions claiming the policy could endanger transport staff.

From next month anyone found drinking or carrying open alcohol containers on any of London's buses, tube trains, trams or the Docklands Light Railway is liable to be ejected. If the offender resists, the British Transport police can be called to help remove them."
