Mayor axes Cross River Tram

Tory London Mayor Boris Johnson has threatened to axe the proposed Cross River Tram, which would connect Kennington with Holborn, Kings Cross, Camden, and Brixton.
Johnson claims there's no point even asking the Government for funding for the much-needed schemes, which would reduce overcrowding on the Northern, Victoria, and Bakerloo lines.
'It's disgraceful that the Mayor can't even be bothered to lobby the Government to improve public transport in Lambeth. People here clearly aren't high on his list of priorities' said local Action Team Member Mark Harrison.
