Bob Blackman: ...they were voting for, but the need to issue them with large numbers of ballot papers caused extensive delays.

Business of the House (10 May 2012)

Bob Blackman: I am sure my right hon. Friend is aware that last week voter turnout in London was 7% above the national average, and I am sure the whole House will wish to congratulate Mayor Boris Johnson on his re-election and Ken Livingstone on his retirement from front-line politics.

That has meant that thousands of passengers have been able to enjoy their journeys to and from home. Now, the old pretender threatens to remove the ban if he is re-elected.
