    As a bus enthusiast what are you going to do with the fleet of the New Bus for London? Are you going to have plans to expand to the other routes? But i really like that bus because of the hop on and hop on platform which make journeys efficient?

    To both

    1) It has been reported recently that over 200 Metropolitan Police detectives will be investigating phone hacking next year, the equivalent of eight murder squads. Do you think this is a sensible use of police resources?

    2) Last year Green Party Mayoral candidate Jenny Jones was reported as saying that it was “ludicrous” for the Metropolitan Police to assist the parents of Madeleine McCann in the search for their daughter. Would the candidates agree with me that this was a crass and insensitive remark and that it is perfectly proper for the British Police to be involved in this case?

    Could Boris please tell me if crime is down in London why my insurance premiums have more than double in 2 years. All insurance companies have told me the reason it’s more expensive is because of crime. Plain and simple.

    Dear Boris,

    Why is my train service noticeably poorer; but fares have shot up?

    Why are supposedly high taxes a disincentive to employment, but high public transport costs are not?

    And why are you encouraging more car use, and more pollution for people in the poorer part of the borough, with another tunnel?
