Brian Cooke, chairman of London TravelWatch, said: "We believe that if we are to achieve a fully integrated transport network in London, the mayor should have more responsibility for rail in London - and we think that the mayor's rail powers should be extended beyond the Greater London Authority boundary, into more natural 'rail geography'.
Not only do they want Red Ken to have power over the Railways in London, they also want him to expand his empire outside the capital.
Sorry Forgive my ignorance, London TravelWatch is not an independent organisation.
So the news should read:
London TravelWatch is independent of the transport operators. We are sponsored and funded by the London Assembly, which is part of the Greater London Authority. The Assembly also appoints the members of London TravelWatch, who are supported by professional staff who carry out much of the day-to-day work.
Ken Livingstone's colleagues, think Ken Livingstone should have more power, which they will then be able to wield on his behalf.
