I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help


You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

Who sold our public space for advertising? We did.

Did anyone write to their MP to beg for advertising on the Tube? No. Did anyone (and I include anyone here) write to their MP to beg for advertising to be withdrawn from the Tube? No.

If you give the public the choice they make the wrong one. Here's how it works:

Me: Do you want Tube fares increased?
Public: No

Me: Do you want advertising on the Tube?
Public: No

Me: Do you want to increase taxes to pay for the Tube?
Public: No

Me: If we use the advertising money to avoid fares increases, do you want advertising on the Tube?
Public: I suppose so

I just thought I drop in to see if there was any danger of the pledge being met. And there isn't. What a suprise.
