Deputy Transport Mayor Replaced

London’s Deputy Mayor for Transport, Heidi Alexander, has resigned. Her replacement is Seb Dance (photo above) who was formerly a Member of the European Parliament representing the Labour Party.

What experience or qualifications does he have to take on this job, such as previous knowledge or work in the transport sector? None so far as I can find although I have asked him (no response so far). So just as Heidi Alexander was appointed when she had no relevant experience, we have another Labour Party politician who is going to have to learn from scratch about the problems of TfL and London’s transport systems when the systems are in crisis.

I guess he did need another job but the Major should not be appointing his pals and political friends to responsible positions in this way. TfL have enough problems without amateurs getting involved.
