Sadiq Khan Exploiting Children Again

TFL-ToxicAir-2018-10-20.jpgThe photograph left of an advertisement from TfL, soon to appear in a bus shelter near you, is the latest example of TfL and the Mayor using children to promote his policies. He has done this repeatedly in the past. He calls London’s air “toxic” which is a gross exaggeration and suggests that air pollution is “mainly” caused by road vehicles. The latter statement is doubtful because it was 50% of NO2 in 2013 but has probably fallen since then – see the ABD’s recently published document that gives the real facts here: https://www.freedomfordrivers.org/Air-Quality-and-Vehicles-The-Truth.pdf

I don’t think the Mayor of London should be using children to promote his policies which appear to be driven more by the desire for financial gain than concern for the environment. No doubt it makes for good photo-shoot opportunities with the national media but children should not be exploited in this way.
