Beating the snow

Fed up with the chaos on the trains, I escaped Westminster and travelled back to Greenwich tonight on a Thames Clipper. The service was running normally, and as ever it's a great way to beat the crowds and travel in comfort. Ironically, leaving work early I will now miss the launch tonight of a report by Policy Exchange on river transport. Making better use of the Thames was a manifesto pledge by Boris, and I gather he's due to attend. He's already gone some way on the issue by extending Oyster pay-as-you-go to the boats, a move Greenwich Labour laughably claimed was a result of their phoney 'campaign'. I'll post links to the report when I get home.
Full report is here. A lot to digest - I'll return to this...
