Speaking on ITV Good Morning Britain, the Conservative candidate for the next London mayoral elections claimed Sadiq Khan failed Transport for London long before the coronavirus pandemic. Mr Bailey accused the London Mayor of making the decision to cut transport services in the capital at the very beginning of the epidemic for commercial reasons. 

As the Government was on Thursday forced to bailout Transport for London to ensure services could run again to help key workers around the capital, Mr Bailey said the good news for Londoners was “bad news” for Sadiq Khan. 

He said: “The bailout is good news for London, it’s good news for emergency workers who have to move around.

“The only person this is bad news for is Sadiq Khan.

“TfL needed a bailout long before the coronavirus and the fact that Sadiq Khan thought it was right to use the safety of Londoners to try and leverage against the Government, I think it’s completely wrong.”
